Healthy & Quick Dark Chocolate Cherry Tart

Now, here is a desert you don’t need to run away from in preparation for bikini season! I made this super simple tart yesterday and it’s almost completely gone. Both my athlete boyfriend who does not like sweets and my baby daughter absolutely loved it!

I love combining fresh fruits in my Summer desserts and I avoid recipes which take to long long to make or bake or those that are packed with butter and sugar. This recipe is light, fluffy, healthy and absolutely guilt free in terms of calories.

If you don’t like cherries you can certainly use fresh strawberries or blueberries or even mix of fresh mint leaves and different berries all mixed together.
Give it a try!

1 cup/236g coconut flour (you may use regular flour but it won’t be gluten free)
⅓ cup/79g chopped almonds
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup/60g pure maple syrup or honey
½ cup/118g coconut oil, solid at room temperature

*If you don’t have time to prepare crust feel free to use purchased quiche dough or fluffy pastry.

6oz/170g chopped dairy-free dark chocolate
½ cup/118ml canned coconut milk
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
⅛ teaspoon almond or vanilla extract (optional)
1 cup/236g fresh cherries pitted and halved
Toasted sliced almonds for garnish

1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C. I used 9 to 10 inch /23 cm pan.
2. Mix coconut flour with almonds and salt in a bowl. Add maple syrup/honey and coconut oil to form a smooth dough.
3. Spread and press dough into the pan evenly all around and up the sides. Poke with fork all around and bake 8-10 min, until edges are golden brown. Set aside to cool while preparing filling.
4. Place chocolate chopped to pieces into a bowl. Heat up coconut milk and pour over the chocolate. Wisk until smooth. Add and wisk salt and almond/vanilla extract.
5. Pour mixture into cooled baked dough evenly. Arrange cherries evenly over the top, sprinkle with toasted almond slices and coconut flakes. Cool in the fridge at least for 1 hour before eating.

Keep in fridge for up to 5 days (even dough I doubt it will last that long).
