Instructions

Instructions are for 16 servings. Please modify as needed.

    Crust

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Grease a fluted 9.5-inch (24 cm) tart pan.
  3. Place the dry crust ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  4. Add the coconut oil to the dry ingredients and mix well until completely combined.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the pan and use your fingertips to press the base into place. Continue working until the base is evenly covering the base and sides of the pan.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes. Remove and let cool while you prepare the filling.

    Filling

  1. To make the filling, chop the chocolate into small pieces and place in a heatproof bowl.
  2. Heat the coconut cream in a small saucepan, over medium-low heat until it is hot, but not boiling, whisking occasionally.
  3. Remove the coconut cream from the heat and pour over the chocolate.
  4. Let the mixture sit without touching it for two minutes.
  5. Using a whisk, stir the ganache until it is smooth and glossy.
  6. Let cool slightly before pouring into the tart shell.
  7. Place the tart in the fridge to set.
  8. Decorate by dusting with cacao powder and/or nibs.

Tip

This tart is very rich, so only a small slice is sufficient.

Decorate with fresh raspberrries.

    Try this! Watch the crust though - very easy to burn, next time I'll turn the temp down a tad. I used 100% chocolate and added more coconut cream. If you are not used to keto you might find this not sweet enough. I love it.

    Can you use cream instead of coconut cream if you aren't vegan?

    We have not tested this recipe with heavy cream but it should work well.

    Delicious, I used 100% dark chocolate, the whole family loved it, I reduced the erythritol to one heaped teaspoon as I don’t like things too sweet,

    can you tell me how much carb filling and crust have separately?

    Roughly speaking, the crust is approximately 1.5g carbs and the filling is 2.5g carbs. That's approximate and the numbers may each be rounded up a little as the cumulative net carbs are only 3g per serving. I have asked the recipe team to double-check this.

    This should freeze well. You can slice it into servings before freezing to allow for quicker thawing when you're ready to enjoy a slice. Allow it to come to room temperature on the counter.

    This was very good! The crust was perfect. I used heavy cream for the ganache, its what I had and it was great. I did use a dark chocolate 75% from trader joes, again its what I had and it tasted great. Next time, Ill work on getting a lower carb chocolate. I shared with my non keto family and they loved it, but the rest is going in the freezer in my secret hiding spot!(yeah the emptied frozen brussel sprout bag,heh,heh, the kids wouldn't open that with a ten foot pole!)

    Podría funcionar con harina de coco y algo de almendra molida para la costra. Últimamente no consigo la harina de almendras.
