How divine is this gluten free and grain free, Paleo Chocolate Tart! And guess what it is mind blowingly delicious.
To make it vegan just change the honey to maple syrup. It will be equally as delicious.
The flavours in this tart are so wholesome especially the honey and cinnamon. You will never get flavours like this in a store bought tart. You really must make this for yourself then you will never go back. This Chocolate Tart will become a family favourite.
So glossy, smooth, sweet and delicious.
1 3/4 cups almond meal
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
300ml coconut milk (1 can)
400gm dark chocolate (I used two blocks of Nestle Plaistowe Dark Chocolate)
To Make Crust:
I grind my own almonds and if you do too take 1 1/2 cups of almonds put them through your food processor then place almond meal into a medium sized bowl, add all other ingredients and mix until well combined.
Grease a 22cm/9 inch tart pan. Then press the almond meal into the bottom of the pan. Prick holes all over base with a fork to prevent it from rising.
Turn oven on to 180C and place pie crust in oven. I placed the tart pan on a baking tray. Makes it easier to move around.
Baking with almond meal can be tricky as it does burn quickly. The crust on this tart burns very quickly.
Here is the secret to getting the perfect crust: Place foil around the edges of the crust then place in the middle of the oven for 15-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and cooked through. Keep an eye on it at all times!
Set aside and allow to cool completely.
To Make Filling
Break up chocolate and place in a medium sized bowl. Heat coconut milk in a small saucepan until just boiling and pour over chocolate. Stir until all chocolate is melted. Then pour chocolate mixture into pie crust.
Place chocolate tart in fridge until set.
You can decorate your tart with anything you like including chocolate curls, different types of nuts, cocoa powder, strawberries..... I was in a hurry, as I made this for a farewell dinner for a friend, and didn't have time but would have scraped a few chocolate curls from the rest of the chocolate block I had left over.
