PB & J Tart

This is a recipe one of my high school students found after I gave them an assignment to find a protein-rich plant-based recipe. The kids then prepared and critiqued this recipe. To say it went over well is an understatement- Almost all of my 165 students said they liked it, which is quite the anomaly for 16, 17 and 18 year olds!

Servings: 10



  • 1 cup Peanuts
  • 3/4 cup Dates pitted


  • 10 oz Strawberries frozen
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp Chia Seeds
  • 1 tsp Vanilla


  • 2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
  • 10 Strawberries fresh


  • Lightly grease a tart pan with oil. Set aside.
  • Add the pitted dates and roasted peanuts to a food processor and pulverize until it comes together into a "dough", with small peanut bits remaining.
  • Press the dough evenly along the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan. Use the back of a spatula to press evenly. Press down until it is very packed.
  • Place the berries in a microwave proof bowl and microwave for 1 minute 20 seconds.
  • Mash the berries with a fork and stir in the chia seeds, and microwave for another minute.
  • Stir in vanilla extract.
  • Spread the berry chia filling evenly in the crust.
  • Slice the 10 fresh strawberries.
  • Arrange the strawberry slices over the berry jam as desired and drizzle with peanut butter. You may have to microwave peanut butter to be able to drizzle it.
  • Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to set before slicing and serving.
