Holiday Vegan Chocolate Tarts

Looking for a quick, simple and chocolate rich recipe for the holidays? Well, look no further! These Holiday Vegan Chocolate Tarts are going to be your Christmas miracle of 2018.

There are so many reasons why I love this vegan chocolate tart recipe. Especially for the holidays! It’s a quick and easy recipe that’s chocolate rich! And it’s entirely vegan and gluten-free. This one is a definite crowd pleaser among guests, whether they are picky eaters, or have certain diet restrictions. It’s so popular in fact that it’s become my go-to dessert to serve whenever we have company.

The crust is made from cocoa, almonds and oats. Pulsed in a food processor until dough-like, and then pushed into round tart tins. Then baked in the oven for 10-15 minutes until crisp and golden. This crust in phenomenal! The flavours are a perfect blend of chocolatey, nutty, sweet and salt. And the crispness is a beautiful contrast to the silky smooth chocolate mousse filling. Baking is not entirely necessary, however. If you don’t have time, or really like raw desserts than you could push the dough into the tart tins and keep them raw. Similar to my Raw Chocolate Tarts with Coyo Filling. But, I prefer them baked in this recipe.
