Vegan Mocha Chickpea Tart

Vegan Mocha Chickpea Tart

Coffee and chocolate? Yes. Chickpeas? I promise you won’t taste them. They pack a little protein punch and help the tart hold together beautifully. The nutritious caramel-y Medjool dates are so good with the coffee. The Finn Crisp rye cracker crust makes for a super crunchy base. If you want to make a no-bake, gluten-free base watch the first part of the Chocolate Orange Tart recipe.

The recipe is for a 5” tart. It’s pretty filling, so it’s perfect for sharing… or having in 2 halves.

Tips

  • If you’re not mad about the coffee flavour simply soak the dates hot water and drain before adding the blender. Then add 2 tbsp of plant milk for a creamy finish.

  • Dandelion root coffee is a great tasting alternative to decaf coffee

  • Swap the Coconut Sugar for 3 dates and chill for 10 mins in the freezer if you want to make a raw, chewy tart base.
