For Crust

Grease a springform pan with coconut oil, and set aside.

Place almonds in a food processor, and process until a coarse flour, add the rest of the ingredients and process until it forms a uniform dough. Press down into the greased pan and bake for 8-12 minutes or until the top is slightly browned.

Take out of the oven and cool

For Filling

Once the crust is cool, make the filling.

1-Finely chop the chocolate and place it in a medium size, heatproof bowl. Add the coconut oil and the sweetener, mix it into the chopped chocolate a little.

2-Heat the coconut cream on the stove until very hot. Pour over the chocolate and tap the bowl on the counter to settle the chocolate. Let this sit for about one minute to start melting the chocolate. Using a rubber spatula (heatproof), slowly stir in a circular motion, starting from the center of the bowl. Stir for about two minutes (the mixture should be melted and the temperature 90 degrees, though I never check the temperature).

3- Add the coffee and stir until incorporated. Pour this over the crust and carefully place it in the fridge to set. It will take about an hour to set. Cover with plastic wrap once all the way cool. Will keep at least three days in the fridge (if you can resist that long!).


For Crust

2 cups of almonds (or choice of nuts)

1/4 cup of cocoa powder

1/2 cup of arrowroot powder, or sprouted wheat flour (only use wheat flour if you can have gluten)

2/3 cup of coconut oil softened (or butter)

1/4 cup of coconut sugar, honey, rapadura, maple sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract (make sure it’s gluten free, if needed)

1/2 teaspoon salt

For Filling

8 ounces of unsweetened chocolate

2 tablespoons coconut oil (butter can be substituted)

1/4 cup of coconut sugar, plus two tablespoon honey, or more coconut sugar (all honey can be used as well. Honey will be sweeter than coconut sugar. Rapadura or maple syrup/sugar are also options).

1 1/2 cups of coconut cream (if you can’t find coconut cream, you can use a full fat coconut milk and skim the fatty top of the top. You will need two 14 ounce cans for that. Cream can be substituted.)

Dash of salt

2 tablespoons brewed coffee or espresso
