Ingredients


1/2 cup Coconut, shredded, unsweetened
1 1/2 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill
2 tbsp Coconut oil
1/4 tsp Salt
2 tbsp Maple syrup, pure
1 cup Coconut milk
341 gm Baking chocolate, semi-sweet (finely chopped)
1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
1/2 cup Coconut flakes, unsweetened
1/2 cup whole/halves Macadamia nuts, unsalted (coarsely chopped)
1 pinch Sea salt

Instructions


Make Tart Shell:

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a food processor, pulse together almond flour, salt and shredded coconut until finely ground. Melt together coconut oil and maple syrup and add to almond flour and coconut mixture, pulse until coarse crumbs form (dough should clump together when squeezed with fingers).

Transfer dough to a greased 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Using a measuring cup or your fingers, evenly press dough in bottom and up sides of pan.

Bake in center of oven until golden and firm, about 15- 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, at least 1 hour.

Make Topping:

Spread the chopped macadamia nuts and shredded coconut evenly over a sheet pan and bake until lightly golden (about 3-5 minutes). Set aside.

Make Ganache:

Place chopped chocolate in a large mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, bring coconut milk to a boil. Pour hot coconut milk over chocolate and let stand 1 minute, then stir until smooth and creamy. Mix in vanilla extract.

Assemble Tart:

Pour chocolate into cooled tart shell. Lightly sprinkle toasted macadamia nuts and toasted coconut across the top. Sprinkle with a pinch of flaky sea salt if desired. Chill for at least one hour or until set and serve.
