Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray 4 tart pans (mine is about 3 ½ inches wide) with some coconut oil.
  2. To make the crust, combine the chickpea flour, tapioca starch, and cinnamon together. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the ¼ cup coconut milk with the coconut oil and maple syrup. Mix well. Slowly add in the flour mixture and combine well.
  4. Divide the mixture into the 4 tart pans. Press on the sides and bottom of the pan to cover.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven when ready and let cool.
  6. Meanwhile, make the chocolate filling. Combine all the ingredients for the chocolate filling into a microwaveable bowl. Microwave at 30 seconds intervals until all the chocolate has melted and the chocolate is smooth.
  7. Divide the chocolate filling amongst the 4 tart pans. Place in the fridge and allow them to set for 3-4 hours or overnight.
  8. When the chocolate has set, top with the sliced strawberries. Enjoy!
