Ingredients:

Crust:

    2 C almonds

    1/4 C cocoa powder

    1/2 C whole wheat flour

    2/3 C butter

    1/4 C honey

    1 tsp vanilla

    1/2 tsp salt

*Grease a spring form pan with butter or coconut oil and set aside.

Filling:

8 ounces of unsweetened chocolate (1 full box)

2 tbls butter or coconut oil

1/4 C + 2 tbls honey

1 1/2 C coconut cream (we used the cream at the top of 2 coconut milk cans)  I’m sure we got some of the coconut milk in there too, and it turned out fantastic! 🙂

Directions:

Crust:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place almonds in a blender and blend into a course flour.  In a bowl mix the other ingredients, then add the almond flour to make a dough.  Press down into the greases pan and bake for 10 minutes, or until top is slightly browned.

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before making the filling.

Crust

Filling:

Finely chop the chocolate and place in a medium size bowl.

Cutting Choc

Add the butter and honey and mix a little.

Stirring 1

On the stove, heat the coconut cream until very hot. (Not quite…but just ready to boil) Then pour over the chopped chocolate.  Allow to sit for a minute to melt the chocolate. Using a rubber spatula, slowly stir in a circular motion starting from the center of the bowl.
Stirring 2

Stir slowly for about 2 minutes!

Stirring 3

Pour this over the crust, and spread around evenly.

Before Setting

Place in the fridge to set. (Will take about an hour) Cover with plastic wrap once all the way cool. It’s AMAZING and moist the first night, but dries out the longer it’s left in the fridge. (Yet still amazing!)

The site we got the recipe idea from said it was pretty rich and best had with fruit!  So we enjoyed ours with oranges! Thank you thenourishinggourmet.com!


My name is Mel. Our family lives in Houston, TX. I keep busy with 3 crazy boys and 1 tiny girl. I’ve always loved cooking and baking, and over the last 8 years have had to hone in on a more healthy lifestyle of eating. What at first seemed difficult, or even frustrating has become so rewarding! When my husband had to unexpectedly have open heart surgery last summer, I felt blessed that with all that was going on, our diet wasn’t something we’d need to adjust or change. We already ate the way the Dr’s were recommending to all their patients. For this, I was grateful!

I’m excited to have this opportunity to help others looking for simple, yummy, and healthy recipes.www.melsgoodfood.blogspot.com
