Recipe Review: Chocolate Hazelnut Tart {Paleo / Gluten Free / Raw / Vegan}

Ohhh sweet tooth of mine….how I hate you sometimes. You get
me searching for delicious desserts far too often. And it’s not like it makes
it easy! No, no! It has to be a paleo friendly, gluten and dairy free dessert. 
And something that isn’t going to take all afternoon in the kitchen to make.
I often curse in the general direction of my sweet tooth.
But then, there are rare moments when it brings me fabulous finds. Like
THIS
recipe I tried out by Our Paleo Life
. Kendra was awesome enough to share
her recipe for everyone to enjoy.

And enjoy it I did!
Honestly, I don’t have many changes to the recipe, I
think it’s brilliant as is, but here are my notes on it:
  • I honestly misread the directions, and did not in fact heat
    anything. Except the coconut oil (to liquefy). I just mixed the crust ingredients,
    formed the crusts, and then reused the bowl for the wet/filling ingredients, and
    filled the tart crusts. Ooooopps.
  • I didn’t have any berries around (though I think raspberries
    would be DELICIOUS next time around) to garnish with.
  • I only had mine sit in the fridge for about 3 hours before
    trying them, and they were perfect.
  • I had some leftover coconut milk in the fridge already, and
    it was cold, not sure if that’s a factor or not, but worth mentioning all the
    same.
  • I used two different containers to let the tarts set in. I
    went out and got the large foil tin wrapper things, and I used two silicone
    regular sized muffin liners. I wanted to see which worked better. And you know
    what? They both worked fine, but….
  • I noticed, using the foil, it was harder to build up a sturdier and even
    crust. And if you used the standard sized silicone muffin tin liner
    thing-a-ma-jigs, you’ll need to make a tad extra crust, or be willing to eat
    the extra filling….guess which one I did!

Needless to say, you need to go and Pin her recipe…. Then print
it out, and put the ingredients on your weekend shopping list. This recipe is
that good. I promise.

    1. You must try these! Although, I'm a huge chocolate fan too, and now that I know how easy they are to do, especially not heating them like you're SUPPOSED to, it is so tempting to whip them up on a whim…
