Chocolate Oat Tart


    Chocolate Oat Tart

    Serves 6


    Oat flour lends the crust of this tart a laudable texture. Thick Greek yoghurt is a perfect substitution for heavy cream in desserts such as this, but it’s best not to use fat-free versions. You could swap out raspberries for blueberries in the filling if desired.

    1 cup (250 ml) pecans
    1 cup (250 ml) oat flour
    ¼ cup (60 ml) unsweetened cocoa powder
    ¼ cup (60 ml) coconut palm sugar or other raw sugar
    1 large free-range egg
    ¼ cup (60 ml) melted coconut oil
    1 cup (250 ml) plain Greek yoghurt 
    1 cup (250 ml) raspberries, plus more for garnish
    1 ½ Tbsp (30 ml) honey
    2 tsp (10 ml) vanilla extract
    1 tsp (5 ml) orange zest

    To make crust, place pecans in bowl of food processor and grind into small bits. Add oat flour, cocoa powder, sugar, egg and coconut oil. Process until mixture clumps together. Place mixture in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 180 C. 

    Press crust dough into 23 cm lightly greased tart pan.

    To make filling, mix together yoghurt, raspberries, honey, vanilla and orange zest in large bowl. Spread yoghurt mixture over crust. Bake for 20 minutes, or until yoghurt has set. Let cool for several minutes before slicing. Garnish with additional raspberries and shaved dark chocolate, if desired.
