Raw Cacao and Cinnamon Tart


For the raw almond-cinnamon tart shell

For the raw cacao filling:


  1. Grease and line a tart tin with greaseproof paper and set aside. In a bowl combine all the ingredients for the almond-cinnamon tart shell until the mixture resembles wet sand. Using a cup press the mixture into the tart tin in one even layer. Pop in the fridge whilst you make your filling.
  2. In a deep saucepan add your coconut milk and gently bring up to simmering point.
  3. Add in your grated raw cacao paste and mix with a whisk until it's fully melted into the mixture.
  4. Next add your raw cacao powder, chosen sweetener and ground cinnamon and whisk until you get a lovely thick filling, taste for sweetness. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  5. Bring out your tart case and gently pour in your filling, pop into the fridge for at least 4 hours or until the filling has set.
  6. Best served out of the fridge and decorated with raw cacao nibs and a drizzle of raw chocolate sauce
