Good Food Friday – my chocolate mousse tart!

Don’t you just love an impromptu delight?  This is one like no other.  I’m known to experiment in the kitchen.  This beauty came from a ‘I feel like a chocolate tart’ moment without any ‘pre preparation.’  I had to improvise from what was in my cupboard.

Anyway you can make this gluten free, sugar free and dairy free should you so desire.  It tastes divine and will have your tummy hap hap happy!



1/2 cup of almond meal

1 cup of flour of your choice.  I used spelt.  If you wanted a gluten free option rice flour with work well.

1/2 cup of rice malt syrup

1/2 cup of coconut butter


200gm dark chocolate

1 cup of coconut cream or regular cream

2 egg whites


Preheat oven at 180 degrees.

Combine almond meal, flour, butter and rice malt syrup and combine.

Press into either a spring form tin or flan tray being sure to build up the sides roughly 1 cm.

Place baking paper on top and weight down with baking weights

Place in oven for 10 minutes or until edges are golden.

In a double boiler, melt chocolate and set aside to cool slightly.

Beat egg whites until fluffy and stiff peaks form.

Combine chocolate and coconut cream and mix well.

Fold through egg whites.

Add to cooled based and put in fridge to set.

Enjoy with raspberries and a healthy style ice-cream like cocofrio or similar.

    Could you substitute the egg white to make it vegan? Any ideas what would work well? And is coconut butter the same ass coco oil?

      Coconut butter isn’t the same as is whipped coconut flesh!

      YES – you could use chia x

    Could you use normal butter instead of coconut butter?

    I made this for tonight and it is DIVINE! I made a gluten and dairy free version with homemade coconut butter. The family loved it and I’ll definitely make it again – thank you!
