Guilt-Free Chocolate Tart

Gluten Free Plant Based Chocolate Tart Recipe

This Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar Free, Chocolate Tart was created on a total whim. I was actually making apple pie for a get together with friends, when I remembered that one of our friends is on an elimination diet and that she cannot eat gluten, dairy, or refined sugar. So after I finished baking the apple pie, I decided to come up with an alternative dessert that everybody can enjoy! 
This chocolate coconut tart has a flaky almond flour crust, and creamy chocolate filling. It was a success and I will certainly be making it again! 

Here is the recipe for The Home Baked Vegan’s Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar Free, Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Chocolate Coconut Tart: 


2 2/3 Cups Almond Flour 
3/4 Cup Vegetable Shortening 
1/2 Cup Shredded Coconut 
1 1/2 Cups Coconut Milk 
1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder 
3/4 Cup Dates 
1/4 Cup Maple Syrup 
1/2 Cup Hot Water 
4 Tbsp Corn Starch 
3 Tbsp Cold Water 

Prepare the crust: 
Mix together Almond Flour, Shortening, and Coconut, until a uniform dough is formed. 
Press into a pie plate or tart pan. 
Bake at 375′ for 17-23 minutes until golden brown. 
Prepare the Filling:
In a food processor or high powered blender, blend together date and hot water until smooth. 
In a small saucepan, whisk together the coconut milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup and blended dates. 
In a small bowl, mix together corn starch and cold water. 
Pour the corn starch water into the saucepan with the chocolate mixture, and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 
Continue stirring rapidly while the mixture boils for 2 minutes. 
Pour the chocolate filling into the tart shell. 
Refrigerate for 4-5 hours until the filling is set and no longer warm.
