Orange-Chocolate Tart cups

It’s almost weekend. For most people, it is the regular weekend. But for me, it’s special because it’s birthday weekend! Yay! 🎉I love being a part-time food blogger, LOL 😂  It sounds weird because I already have a full-time job. But I endear and enjoy every moment of cooking and sharing what I put on my table. I present you Orange-Chocolate tarts which are refined sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free. The ganache for these tarts is decadent and extraordinarily indulging because it has my favorite citrus. You should give it a try 🙂

Below recipe makes 8 medium sized tart cups.

For the tart cups:
1 and 1/2 cup almond meal
1 egg
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey

For the orange-chocolate ganache:
1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used 63% cocoa)
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp Cara-Cara Orange zest
1/2 cup fresh unsweetened orange juice
1/4 cup brandy/rum (optional)

For garnish:
Fresh orange slices

*Mix coconut oil, almond meal, egg, and honey in a bowl until a dough-like consistency is achieved.
*Press dough into muffin tray and press it on the sides to create the base of the tarts.
*Bake for 15-16 minutes at 330-340F.
*Cool the tarts until they achieve room temperature.
*While the tarts are cooling, let’s make the orange chocolate ganache.
*Melt dark chocolate and coconut oil. Whisk brandy, orange zest and orange juice with the melted chocolate.
*Fill each tart to the top with the ganache filling.
*Garnish it with fresh oranges.
