Chocolate Orange Tart – hands down the easiest tart I have ever made! A no-bake treat, so rich, creamy and decadent that you won’t even notice its refined sugar-free and vegan! Let me tell you, my dear friends, make this NOW, you can always thank me later!
A new tart pan is all it took to inspire me to make this Chocolate Orange Tart! The need to use the pan pronto, before stacking it in the cabinet was so strong that I immediately made this one-night post-dinner. I didn’t follow any set recipe, just added some ingredients I had been wanting to use. And really it took me no time at all to put it all together!
This tart is a no-bake dessert, so it will work beautifully in summers too when we can’t stand to turn on the oven. The base is so simple..just oats, cocoa, walnuts and puffed rice. Combined with coconut oil and date syrup. You can make this gluten free too if you can get your hands on gluten-free oats. Any nuts would do, but I love the combination of chocolate with creamy sweet walnuts.
Now walnuts are a powerhouse of nutrition. They are rich in good fats as well as in Omega 3 fatty acids. They are excellent for heart and gut health. A good source of fiber, protein, iron, calcium and zinc, walnuts are a valuable addition to our daily diet. Make sure you store them in your refrigerator or freezer for better shelf life as they can get rancid fairly quickly at room temperature.
This Chocolate Orange Tart is full of healthy, nutritious, clean ingredients and tastes superb with its nutty base and smooth silky orange zested filling. This is a rich tart so a little piece goes a long way. Best to share with friends and family, I say!
