************

This Keto Chocolate Tart has a silky and dreamy chocolate ganache with a buttery, flaky and crispy crust – so decadent ! You can wow your guests with this delicious dessert and they would not even know that it is keto. This almond crust is one of my keto pie crust recipe (see video https://youtu.be/sgmNe3mVMVo ) and it is the crispiest. But you can actually use any of the other crust recipes from the video except that the texture may be different due to different flours.

Since the chocolate ganache is the star here, it would be best to use a good quality dark chocolate which is sugar free. As I have some leftovers of 99% Lindt Dark Chocolate, I decided to use these. Nowadays, there are more sugar free dark chocolate available online so it is quite convenient.

NUTRITION INFO
[ Total Servings = 12 ]
Per Serving ;
Total Carb = 8.6 g
Dietary Fiber = 4 g
Net Carb = 4.6 g
Calories = 333
Total Fat = 29.9 g
Protein = 6.8 g

INGREDIENTS
FOR THE CRUST
Almond Flour = 240 g / 2 cups (You can also use other crust options from this pie crust video- https://youtu.be/sgmNe3mVMVo. However, this almond crust recipe is the crispiest. )
Unsalted Cold Butter (Cubed) = 80 g / 1/3 cup
Egg = 1 large
Salt = 1 tsp

DIRECTION
1. Preheat the oven at 350F or 180C.
2. In a bowl, add the almond flour and salt. Mix to combine.
3. Add the cold cubed butter and use your fingers to mash it into smaller pieces. Then switch to flatten the pieces of dough between your hands. The thin sheets of butter created will melt as the crust bakes and it produces steam which pushes the flour around them and that is how we get the flaky layers. Once the dough looks crumbly, it’s done.
4. Add the egg and mix until a dough is formed. Shape the dough into a ball.
5. Grease a non-stick 9 inch or 23 cm pan with a removable bottom.
6. Place the dough on the pan and spread evenly.
7. Freeze the dough for 15 mins.
8. After 15 mins, prick some holes on the dough. Then line with a parchment paper and weigh it down with any suitable weights. Blind bake for 15 mins. Then remove the paper and weights and bake for another 15 mins. Meanwhile, make the chocolate ganache.

INGREDIENTS
FOR THE CHOCOLATE GANACHE.
Unsweetened dark chocolate = 228 g / 8 oz
Whipping or heavy cream = 240 ml / 1 cup
Powdered Sweetener = 100 g (Note: I used self ground Erythritol but you can use any keto friendly powdered sweetener)
Egg = 1 large
Salt = 1 tsp (optional)
Pea or Almond Milk = 60 ml / 1/4 cup
Unsalted Butter (softened) = 14 g / 1 tbsp

DIRECTIONS
1. Chop the dark chocolate into small pieces so that it is easier to melt. Add into a bowl together with the sweetener and salt (if using). Mix to combine.
2. You can also melt the sweetener and salt together with the cream.
3. In a saucepan, add the whipping or heavy cream. Bring to a boil. Then pour over the chocolate mixture. Let it stand for 1 minute before stirring.
4. Stir to melt the chocolate mixture until smooth.
5. You can also melt the chocolate mixture slowly in a bain-marie or microwave.
6. Add the softened butter and whisk to combine.
7. Add the egg and whisk to combine.
8. Lastly, add the milk and whisk until smooth and creamy.
9. Pour onto the crust and bake at 300F or 150C for 20 minutes until the chocolate is set.
10. Cool completely before removing the pan.
11. You can decorate with some raspberries or strawberries and dust with powdered sweetener. Or sprinkle with flaky sea salt but these are all optional. You can also serve the chocolate tart with Crème Fraiche.
12. For a firmer texture, you can chill the chocolate tart before serving.
13. This chocolate tart can be refrigerated up to a week or frozen for months.
