Almond and Pecan Tart with Chocolate Ganache

This almond and pecan tart is a wonderful and easy to make dessert. Do not be overwhelmed by the ingredients. It is really three simple layers; a crust, a filling and a topping. It is so decadently delicious, you’ll be glad you tried it.

This dessert is vegan, raw and dairy free.

Ingredients for Crust:

1 C. Pecans

1/2 C. Walnuts

1/2 C. Almonds

1-1/2 C. Medjool dates, pitted and quartered

Place all ingredients in food processor. Process until mixture is crumbly and sticks together between your fingers when pinched.

Pour into tart pan  (4.75 x 14.25 x 1.5 inch).  Press filling on bottom and sides of pan.

Set aside while you make filling.


This is the tart pan I use. I like this pan because the bottom is removable, making it super easy to remove the tart from the pan, when it’s time to serve dessert.

Almond Filling:

1 C. Almond butter

1/4 C. Maple syrup

1/4 C. Coconut oil, melted

Place all ingredients in blender or food processor, process till smooth.

Pour into prepared crust and spread evenly.

Place in freezer to firm up for an hour. Make ganache.
