This indulgent vegan chocolate tart is rich, creamy, and totally delicious. The chocolate avocado mousse filling is wrapped in a homemade crust. This plant based dessert looks super fancy, but is actually really simple to make!
In case you haven't noticed yet, I really do love chocolate. And cake, and brownies, and cookies, and ice cream. And did I mention chocolate?
So to celebrate the gift that is chocolate, today I’m sharing one of my favorite healthier (yes, really) desserts - this chocolate tart.
And you won't believe the secret ingredient.... avocado. Yep, this vegan chocolate tart is stuffed with a delicious chocolate avocado mousse.
Isn’t it cool how avocado can be turned into an incredibly chocolatey and indulgent dessert? I promise you can’t taste the avocado. But what it does is add a luscious, creamy texture. It’s definitely good enough to eat by itself as a snack too!
The chocolatey filling is served in a sweet homemade crust that’s super easy to make. And it's vegan and gluten-free too!
This vegan chocolate tart promises to be your go-to sweet treat for parties, or just as something to enjoy at the weekend.
- 100% vegan (although you would never guess!)
- Creamy and smooth
- Easy and beginner-friendly
- Super indulgent
- … and healthy at the same time!
- Perfect as dessert for breakfast (I won't tell.)
Not to mention that this is also a great way to use up any leftover avocado. So, if you have some left in the fridge, I would definitely recommend you give this chocolate tart a go!
How to Make a Vegan Chocolate Tart
This recipe is super easy! Be sure to scroll down for the full printable recipe with detailed instructions.
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F/ 200 degrees C. Meanwhile, add the crust ingredients (tahini, peanut butter, coconut sugar, oat flour and all-purpose gluten-free flour) to a large mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients together, then press into a 5 inch or 14 cm tartlet tin, poking holes in the bottom with a fork to prevent the crust from rising. Bake in the oven for around 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the chocolate mousse filling. Add the avocado, cacao powder and maple syrup to a blender or food processor and blend. Then, dissolve some agar agar in 3 tbsp water in a saucepan and add this to the mousse, blending one more.
After adding the mousse to the crust, leave in the fridge for 2-3 hours and serve straight away with your favourite hot drink!
