Tart crust preparation

How to Make the Gluten-Free Crust

I love how simple this tart crust is! Its main ingredient is almond flour. The crust ingredients are simply mixed together in a bowl, and then patted into your tart pan.

I recommend a tart pan with a removable bottom. Once it’s evenly spread in the pan, it needs to be parbaked in the oven, since the filling won’t be baked at all.

To do so, simply place in the preheated oven and bake, until the tart is golden brown all over.

Filling preparation

How to Make the Chocolate Filling

This chocolate filling, like the rest of the tart, is SO EASY to make. It doesn’t require any baking!

But first, you might be wondering what is the difference between coconut cream and coconut milk? A typical can of coconut milk usually has two parts, the solid creamy top section and the thin watery section at the bottom. When we say coconut cream, the top milky part that is hard when cold is what we are referring to. These days, you can buy coconut cream itself. It’s usually a smaller can, about 5 ounces or so. If you can’t find that, just buy a few cans of coconut milk (usually about 3-4) and chill them. You can then scoop out the hardened part to get your coconut cream.

To make the chocolate filling for your tart, simply heat together the coconut cream, maple sugar, arrowroot (which helps thicken the whole thing), and salt until melted. Then take it off heat, and whisk in your chocolate. Once it’s fully combined, your filling is made!

Immediately transfer it to your baked tart shell, smooth over the top, and refrigerate it until it’s firm.

How to Serve It

This chocolate tart should be stored in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 3 days. Store it chilled, with your choice of whipped cream or coconut whipped cream (to keep it dairy-free) and some berries, if desired!

Decadent Gluten Free Chocolate Tart

Rich and decadent, this Gluten-Free Chocolate Tart is one everyone will go crazy for. It is super chocolatey and creamy, with the perfect crisp crust, and is gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free!
Servings 8
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes



  • 2 cups 198 grams almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons 15 grams tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Chocolate Filling:

  • 3 cups coconut cream see note
  • 1/3 cup maple sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 9 oz. dark chocolate chips
  • Flaky sea salt

For Serving:


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Mix together almond flour, tapioca flour, butter, maple syrup, vanilla and salt in a bowl until well combined. Transfer the mixture to a 9" tart pan with a removable bottom. Carefully press the crumbs up the sides and into the bottom of the plate in an even layer. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden. Remove and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, make the chocolate filling. Heat together the coconut cream, maple sugar, arrowroot, and sea salt in a medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat. Once boiling, whisk for two minutes and then remove from heat. Add chocolate chips and vanilla. Stir together until the chocolate is completely melted and thick like pudding.
  • Pour the chocolate mixture into the prepared pie crust and gently shake to get a smooth top.
  • Refrigerate for 4 hours.
  • When ready to serve, sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  • Serve with berries and coconut whipped cream, if desired.


Make sure to use coconut cream, not coconut milk. Coconut cream is the solid creamy part from coconut milk.
Most stores now sell coconut cream separately. If you can’t find it, you can use regular coconut milk, but you may need a few cans to get enough of the solid part of the coconut milk.

  1. This pie is absolutely outstandingly delicious! This is rich, dense, chocolatey, and addictive. Got rave reviews from everyone who could get near it! Thanks Lexi!!

  2. any suggestions for a substitute for Tapioca Flour? I’m having a hard time finding it (even searching at whole foods). And arrowroot flour, is that just the same as arrowroot?

    1. Hi Jenni,

      You can find it in most supermarkets from Bob’s Red Mill! Or online. Arrowroot would be the only sub that could possibly work, but I haven’t tried it with that so I can’t guarantee.

      Good luck! Let us know how it goes 🙂


  3. That does look decadent and totally delicious! Salivating over your photos. Love all the wholesome ingredients in here 🙂

  4. I can’t believe this tart is healthified, it looks super indulgent and chocolately! Great recipe!
