Ingredients

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1.5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp boiling water
  • 1.5 tbsp chia or flax seeds (preferably white chia / golden flax)
  • 100 g dark chocolate (preferably orange + spices mixed in)
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 large oranges (sweet)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the caramel by adding coconut cream and coconut sugar to a pot or saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiling reduce heat to low and let simmer for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until reduced to half the amount and dulce-de-leche consistency. Set aside and let cool down completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F (180°C).
  3. Grind chia seeds or flax seeds in a small coffee grinder or with mortar and pestle.

  4. Combine coconut oil and boiling water in a small bowl and whisk until oil is completely melted, then add ground chia or flax and mix well.
  5. Add almond flour and chia/water/oil mix to a food processor and process until dough-like consistency. Then place in an airtight container or wrap in cling film and place in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes. 

  6. Roll out almond-flour dough in between two large pieces of parchment paper (important!) into a 10-inch circle, peel off the top part of parchment paper and flip dough over into a separable 9-inch tart pan and press into the edges and cut off excess dough from the sides. 

  7. Place tart pan in the oven for 10 minutes, then take out and let cool completely (stick in the freezer for faster cooling).

  8. Melt dark chocolate over very low heat. 

  9. Once almond crust is cool, pour all the liquid chocolate into the middle of the crust and then move the tart pan around until all bottom and sides are covered with chocolate. Keep turning around until the chocolate doesn't run anymore.
  10. Stick in freezer to cool and harden quickly.
  11. Fill cold almond-chocolate crust with cold caramel sauce and smooth out with a spoon.

  12. Peel and slice oranges into about 1/4 inch (0.5cm) rounds and place on top of the caramel.
