My new favourite dessert – No Bake Chocolate Tart

One day I decided to bake something sweet. You know, one of those days… It’s kind of everyday for me, but it’s ok. I didn’t know what I would like to bake, but I thought I will have a look for some ideas on instagram or pinterest.  I looked in my cupboards what ingredients I have and I spotted a can of coconut milk. And it hit me, there was one thing that I really really wanted to do for a long time – chocolate mousse made with coconut cream (that thick part of coconut milk). And here it is. Without even thinking my brain came up with the recipe to try – no bake tart with chocolate-coconut mousse. I actually like no bake sweets, I used to do amazing (or I just think like that) no bake New York style cheesecake, or maybe it’s because I am very bad in baking, who knows.

I don’t want you to think that this tart is very hard to make. Absolutely not. Have you ever tried making a cheesecake crust or those very popular now little energy balls? You know that they do not require a lot of ingredients or your energy and time, and what’s best – you can use whatever you want – oats, buckwheat, coconut flakes, your favourite nuts or just digestive biscuits. It’s all up to you and your taste. Seriously. 

In this recipe I used barley as a main ingredient for the crust. I would’ve used oats, but a few weeks ago I was looking for the best priced (yeah, cheapest) oats in all of my local shops, but barley was actually cheaper so I went for it. It’s good to add something different to your diet once in a while. But feel free to use anything you like!

Also, WARNING, this recipe is high in calories – coconut milk, peanut butter, coconut oil, sweetener, chocolate.True calorie and sugar bomb. I think you can adjust something to make it a bit better for your diet, but… I believe that we put toooo much pressure and negativity on food that we consume, and I really try to heal myself from that, so once I do something, I try not to think about calories and other stuff. Sorry for that. 

Are you ready to sweeten up your day?

Here’s what we need:

For the crust:
1 cup barley flour (just blend the barley)
2 tbsp coconut flour
2 tbsp milled flax seeds
1 tbsp nut butter (I used Meridian roasted peanut butter)
1 tbsp sweetener (I used Lithuanian honey)
2 tbsp coconut oil

For chocolate filling:
1 can of coconut milk (we use only creamy part)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp nut butter
1 tbsp sweetener (I used Lithuanian honey)
1 bar of dark chocolate

Here’s how we do it:

  1. Blend your barley, oats or whatever you decided to use. I like it to leave it with a little bit bigger pieces, not fully blended. But it’s up to you. Once you blend it – add remaining ingredients – coconut flour, milled flax seeds, nut butter, melted coconut oil, sweetener and blend it all together. It should be quiet sticky mixture. If it’s too dry – don’t be afraid to add a little bit more coconut oil and nut butter.
  2. Once everything is perfectly mixed – transfer to a baking tray. Spread it all over the pan, press it well and leave it in a freezer to chill. 
  3. Now it’s time for filling – take just the creamy part of coconut milk, coconut oil, sweetener, melted dark chocolate bar, nut butter and blend everything until smooth. How easy is that?
  4. Take out your crust from the freezer and pour your chocolate filling over it. Spread it evenly.
  5. And the last part – top it up with chocolate sprinkles (or roughly chopped chocolate), coconut, peanuts or other things of your choice. Leave it in the fridge for at least a hour (no kidding, coconut oil does a really good job in firming everything super quick) and then enjoy!
