Raw Chocolate Ginger Tartlets

Vegan | Gluten Free

We love this great tartlet recipe from our good friend Niki. It's really quite simple and the result is utterly delicious.  

Makes 8 mini tarts

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes (including assembly of the tarts)

Ingredients:

For the ‘pastry’ case:

  • 200g of almond flour 
  • ½ cup of raw coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar 
  • ¼ teaspoon of pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1 level teaspoon of ginger powder

 
For the raw chocolate topping:

Method:

 
Step 1: 
 
Preheat your oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. To create the pastry layer all you have to do is combine the ground almonds, coconut oil, ginger powder and Himalayan salt in your mixing bowl using a wooden spoon. Once it comes together, take your wooden spoon and use your hands to form the dough.
 
Step 2: 
 
Next, use a rounded tablespoon of your pastry mixture for each tart case and flatten out your pastry evenly using the palm of your hand and your fingertips. This process can take up to 10 minutes but I promise you, the effort will be worth it as this will make sure that your tarts are strong enough to hold your filling along with baking evenly. Place your tarts on your baking tray and bake for around 12-15 minutes or until they turn golden brown. Leave to cool.
  
Step 3: 
 
Lastly, for your raw chocolate topping gently melt your pitch dark chocolate in a small saucepan with the coconut oil.  Carefully cover your tarts (my favourite part!) evenly and decorate with your raw chocolate ginger pieces. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving.

These tarts are great for special occasions and even Christmas, just increase the ginger powder to two teaspoons and you can top the tarts with dried cranberries, too.
