Rich Chocolate Tart with Chickpea Pastry

Rich Chocolate Tart with Chickpea Pastry

What? Chickpea Pastry, are you crazy?

No my fellow chocolate lovers, I am perfectly sane (ish). Chickpea flour is subtly nutty and really is the perfect partner for a rich, decadent dark chocolate filling.

It is a bonus that it is also gluten free. This chickpea pastry recipe I have tested is definitely the easiest and tastiest recipe I have found.

The tart itself is exquisite in all it’s chocolate glory, smooth, rich and naughty.

PLEASE use Dark Chocolate of at least 70%, it really does make a difference to the tart.

Do you want a milky, sweet, odd tasting Cadbury’s chocolate tart or an amazingly more-ish, delicious and elegant dark chocolate tart? If you answered Cadbury’s, well I know where you live….

I used a bar of Madecaase 70% with coconut I had to hand. The coconut gave the tart a very subtle extra flavour and I LOVE Madecasse chocolate.
