  • 2 cups 215g blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup 34g raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon 7g coconut flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup


  • 1 cup oranges peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup coconut milk full fat
  • 8 ounces 229g dark chocolate



  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch tart pan with coconut oil and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix the almond flour, cacao powder, coconut flour and salt.
  • Whisk the coconut oil and maple syrup in a separate bowl until combined. Pour mixture into the bowl with the dry ingredients and using your hands mix to form the dough.
  • Press the dough into the bottom and sides of the prepared tart pan. Poke a few holes in the center of the crust with a fork, and bake for 15 minutes or until the top begins to turn brown. Set the pan on a wire rack to cool.


  • Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat.
  • In a large bowl, mix the oranges, almonds and maple syrup. Spread the mixture onto the cookie sheet, and bake at 350°F for 15 minutes. Set pan on a wire rack to cool for 10 minutes, then sprinkle the mixture evenly over the crust.
  • Chop the chocolate into small pieces and put in a heat-proof bowl.
  • In a medium saucepan, heat the coconut milk over medium-high heat just until it starts to bubble, then pour the hot milk over the chocolate, and let it sit for 5 minutes. Stir the chocolate and milk, starting from the center with a metal spoon or whisk until combined.
  • Pour chocolate over the oranges and let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes. Refrigerate tart for about 1 hour or until the chocolate is set. Remove tart from pan and serve .
