Vegan Chocolate Tart

This is one of my favourites desserts to make for my friends and family. It’s completely vegan as the coconut oil in the base helps to bind the oats together and the espresso powder in the filling gives it an extra boost of deliciousness.

Full of flavour, this Vegan Chocolate Tart is the perfect after dinner treat!

Serves 8 Ready in 90 minutes Good For ,


Preheat the oven to 160°C.

To make the base blend the porridge oats into a flour like constancy. Add in the coconut oil, dates, cacao powder and cinnamon and blend again until it is fully combined. Press the base out into a small tart tin. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Once the base it out of the oven allow it to cool.

While this is cooling, blend the espresso and cacao with the melted chocolate, coconut oil and medjool dates. Once smooth add a pinch of salt. You may need to add a tbsp. of warm water if it’s too thick.

Once the base is cold pour over the chocolate filling and let this cool and set for 1 hour in the fridge. Slice into 8 pieces and enjoy with friends and family!

You will need to store it in the fridge.

    Roughly how long could you store it for in the fridge?

  • Vanessa anderson

    Can you suggest an alternative to expresso powder

    • Madeleine Shaw

      Chicory powder is a great coffee substitute and you can buy it from most health food shops or online, however the flavour won’t be as strong as espresso powder so you might need to use a little more in the recipe. xx

  • Alison

    Hi – should the coconut oil be at room temperature or melted?

    • Madeleine Shaw

      Hi gorgeous, use it at room temperature. xx

  • Rachel Hearne
