Chocolate Tart Recipe

Here is, a little late but we made it, my favourite and self formulated recipe for my chocolate tart.


- 2 cups almond meal (my daughter is allergic to nuts so I used spelt flour instead)
- 2-3 tbsp cacao
- 4tbsp coconut oil melted
- 4tbsp maple syrup (or honey for non vegans)
- 1/8 tsp salt


》(If it feels too dry then add a little more coconut oil)
》combine all ingredients and press into a tart tin (springform is best)
》bake at 180*C (350*F) for 10mins


- 2 cans coconut milk
- 1-2tsp vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup maple syrup (or honey for non vegans)
- 1/4 cup coconut oil (roughly 3-4 tbsp)
- 1 tbsp gelatine (I use Great Lakes powdered gelatine if I use gelatine, vegan option: Agar Agar or this can be omitted and 1-2 extra tbsp of coconut oil added to the recipe to help set which is what I did this time)
- 1/4-1/2 cup cacao (depending on the level of chocolateyness you want it)
- 2 rows of good quality dark chocolate if you want it really rich!


》Combine coconut milk, vanilla, coconut oil in a saucepan and bring to the boil slowly then turn to low heat whisk continuously with this step to avoid burning
》if you are using gelatine in this recipe take out 1/4-1/2 cup of the heated mixture and set aside, sprinkle 1tbsp of gelatine or agar agar on top and let it sit while your mixture continues on the heat. If using no gelatine just continue to heat mixture over low heat until it thickens a little
》after mixture thickens a little remove from the heat
》add cacao slowly and whisk in to avoid lumps(add enough to match the richness you're after....yep this required taste testing along the way )
》finally add some dark chocolate if you want it richer
》 pour into the tart tin over the cooled crust and set in the fridge for a few hours. If you are not using gelatine it will take a little longer to set.

* You can get Great Lakes Gelatine from (get the orange bottle NOT the green) xxxx

I hope those who make this get as much love and enjoyment out of it as we do. It's quite rich so make sure you add some cream (grassfed or raw where possible)
