Salted Caramel & Chocolate Tart

September 22, 2020

 

Salted dark ganache meets a dense sticky caramel and a delish flour-free and refined sugar-free crust of almonds, oats and jaggery. The fresh oranges look like a decorative garnish but the zesty fragrance does come through with a burst of freshness. A super versatile recipe to save, as each of these elements can be used in several other desserts... so make extra (like I always say) and get creative!

 

Do try out the recipe and let me know if you and your family absolutely loved it like mine did!
