  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar OR cane sugar
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp (1 ounce) melted coconut oil

For the filling:

Instructions

Prepare the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray an 8-inch fluted tart pan with gluten-free pan spray and line with a parchment paper circle. Set aside.
  • Place the walnuts in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until the nuts are a fine meal. Add coconut sugar and salt, pulse to combine. Add the egg and oil and pulse until the dough begins to form a ball.
  • Press the dough into the prepared tart pan and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool while you prepare the filling.

Prepare the filling:

  • Pour the chocolate chips into a blender and add salt, espresso powder, vanilla and the egg. Pulse the blender to mix the egg throughout the chocolate. Warm the coconut cream in the microwave 30 seconds at a time, until quite hot but not scalded. While blending, pour the cream in a thin stream through the pour spout in the blender lid until it’s all added. Scrape down the sides and blend another few seconds, or until smooth.
  • Immediately pour the filling into the crust and smooth the top. Refrigerate for at least two hours, top with berries and serve.
