It’s the Holiday Season and baking is in full swing. As much as we love all the incredible Christmas cookies out there, sometimes you need a slightly more decadent dessert to complete a nice meal. We are grateful to Rachel of the Bakerita for sharing her dark chocolate coconut and macadamia nut tart recipe with us. Doesn’t it look incredibly yummy? We are big fans of Rachel and were thrilled to interview her on our podcast (listen here). She told us all about how she fell in love with baking early on and details about her journey into the world of blogging and preparing gluten-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free desserts that taste as good or better than their sugar-filled counterparts. Give her episode a listen and find a few yummy treats to try.
This tart is incredibly rich, creamy, and satisfying plus it’s impressive looking. If you’re on the lookout for something to wow a crowd of friends and family, this is it. Most tarts are intensive and time consuming to prepare but you’ll be glad to know this one is simple and fairly quick. You’ll definitely want to add it to your list of desserts to try this season. Guests will never suspect that it’s gluten-free, refined sugar-free, vegan, and paleo.
The crust is an almond and coconut blend with a nice tender yet textured consistency that pairs beautifully against the rich and velvety chocolate filling. Add toasted hazelnuts and coconut and you’re in business. We know you’ll enjoy adding this recipe to your arsenal. Make sure to visit Rachel’s blog Bakerita for more wholesome and delicious baked good recipes. She’s also been branching out into the savory and killing it.
