Chocolate Pecan Tart
Oh la la! It’s the tastiest tart for Thanksgiving or Christmas and you can make it! My team and I managed to devour it in one go… It’s not only incredibly tasty, the combination of chocolate and orange makes it extra special. Winner! ; )
approx. 20 min
1 tart (approx. 12 pieces)
3 months in the freezer / 3 days covered in the fridge
300 g ((3 cups) whole spelt flour (or coconut or buckwheat flour)
45 g (scant 1/2 cup) cacao powder
¼ tsp sea salt
80 g coconut blossom sugar
100 g (2/3 cup) coconut oil, softened
100 ml havermelk
50 ml (1/4 cup) maple syrup
150 g (1 cup) coconut oil, softened
zest of 1 orange (organic)
1 tsp vanilla (unsweetened)
pinch of sea salt
250 g (9 oz.) pecans
100 g (3.5 oz.) chocolate (extra dark)
pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp grated coconut or coconut flakes
slices of orange (optional)
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350 F). Then make the crust by combining all of the crust ingredients in a mixing bowl. Grease the cake tin with a bit of coconut oil and line it with the dough. Next, make the filling by grating the orange peel and roughly chopping the pecans. Combine with the remaining filling ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir well. Pour the filling into the crust and place it in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and melt the chocolate with a bit of sea salt in a saucepan. Pour the melted chocolate over top of the tart. Slice the peeled orange into pieces if desired and place them on the melted chocolate. Decorate the tart with some grated coconut or coconut chips and enjoy!
