Amazingly Gluten Free Vegan Chocolate Tart

Prep Time: 25 Minutes

Cook Time: 15 Minutes

Who doesn't like perfect, decadent chocolate tarts? But the traditional recipes all contain so much gluten, which many of us are now avoiding. Here's a very simple recipe that's easy enough to make at home, and more than enough to delight your next party guests. Incorporating fresh fruits adds loveliness to gently enhance the recipe's inherent awesomeness. You can experiment with this versatile, lovely dessert in so many ways! Let's get started.



  • ½ cup raw coconut flakes (unsweetened)
  • 1-1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • Dash of salt


  • 2 medium size avocados
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Diced fresh fruits
  • ½ can of coconut cream


  • Step 1: Preheat your oven to approximately 350. Brush a nonstick pie pan with melted coconut oil and set it aside.
  • Step 2: In a food processor, mix the almond flour, coconut flakes, and salt. Then add in the maple syrup and coconut oil and process until well incorporated.
  • Step 3: Press the finished coconut almond crust into the pan.Firmly press it down to create a thick and even layer.
  • Step 4: Bake for 10 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Remove the crust, and allow it to cool for a about 20 minutes. Next, cool it down further in the freezer for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Step 5: In the mean time, make the chocolate filling. Mix all of the filling ingredients and blend them until the mixture is smooth.
  • Step 6: Now, pour the chocolate filling onto the crust, and evenly spread it into thick layer covering the inside of the crust. Cool the tart in the refrigerator for at least an hour-and-a-half or until it is set.

For the garnish, you can whip the coconut cream until it is fluffy. You can use fresh and seasonal fruits of your choice. Enjoy!
