While I am away travelling I want to make sure you all eat!
Here's a great recipe, and it's non-dairy, gluten-free, low sugar and pareve.
“Once You Go Black,” you will never go back to any other chocolate dessert. They are all about the chocolate, not the sugar, and use healthy fats, so you can satiate your cravings without the guilt. You know you are going to eat dessert anyway, so why not make it in the best way possible.
Plus they are so so easy to make.
Use 8, 5 ounce ramekins
recipe can easily be doubled
1/8 good cacao powder, not dutch cocoa
1/6 cup sugar (eyeball half of ⅓ cup)
1/2 cup hot strong coffee or weakened espresso (good decaf ok)
1/4 cup extra virgin coconut oil
½ can unsweetened coconut milk (not lite)
4 drops coconut extract (optional)
powdered sugar for topping
Non Dairy Coconut Bliss Ice Cream for serving
Preheat oven to 350 and “grease” each tart dish with virgin coconut oil
Chop the chocolate into 1 inch pieces
Place the chocolate, the cacao powder and sugar in Cuisinart and pulse into well chopped
Add HOT coffee and pulse until well melted
Add eggs, coconut milk, coconut oil and coconut extract and pulse until well mixed
Pour mixture evenly into the 4 tart dishes
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
