  • 1/2 cup (60 g) blanched almond flour
  • 1/2 cup (45 g) raw cacao powder
  • 2 Tablespoons (12 g) tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) organic granulated cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 6 Tablespoons (85 g) cold butter, diced into 1/2” cubes
  • 1 teaspoon dark rum (or substitute vanilla extract)
  • 1 ½ ounces dark chocolate, finely chopped or in chip form

Filling:

  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • 3 Tbs honey
  • teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 large egg

To Garnish:

  • Fresh Mint
  • Fresh berries

  • Chocolate curls

To Serve:

Instructions

For the Crust:

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350ºF.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the oat flour, almond flour, cacao powder, tapioca starch, sugar, and salt.
  • Scatter the butter pieces over the top and drizzle with the dark rum. Turn the mixer to medium-low and run until the dough comes together in clumps and the butter is worked through, 3–5 minutes. (It may seem dry at first, but it will form a dough.)
  • Dump about half of the crumbs into a 5x13-inch rectangular loose-bottom tart pan (or 9-inch round tart pan) and press evenly into the sides of the pan. Add the remaining crumbs and press evenly into the bottom.
  • Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet to catch any drips and bake until slightly puffed and firm to the touch, 20-25 minutes. Remove the crust from the oven and, while it’s still hot, press the sides and bottom with the back of a spoon. This will help it hold together when cool.

For the Filling:

  • Place the chocolate in a medium-sized bowl.
  • In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan set over medium heat, heat the cream with the honey until boiling, the honey dissolves, and the mixture is hot and steamy, then pour it over the chocolate. Let sit for 1 minute, then whisk gently until very smooth.
  • Whisk in the egg, then pour the filling into the hot crust and carefully transfer to the oven.
  • Bake the tart until the filling quivers gently in the center when you give it a jostle, and the edges are just set, 10-20 minutes. Let the tart cool completely, then chill until firm, 1-2 hours, and up to 1 day.

To Garnish & Serve:

  • Arrange fresh berries, mint, and chocolate curls as inspired. Sprinkle it with powdered sugar. Serve with a heaping scoop of homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
