Chocolate Barley Grass Tart | © 2018 | | © 2018 |

A luscious barley grass ganache and hazelnut einkorn chocolate tart crust is a match made in heaven. Deliciously creamy, refined-sugar free sweet and very easy to make too!

Chocolate Einkorn PastryBarley White Chocolate Filling
  • 150 g Einkorn flour
  • 50 g Hazelnut meal
  • 30 g Lightly alkalized cocoa powder
  • 60 g Erythritol granules
  • 120 g Chilled butter, chopped
  • 1 Large egg
  • 200 g White chocolate, chopped
  • 100 ml Coconut cream
  • 2 tsp Coconut oil
  • 2 tsp Barley grass powder
  1. To make the chocolate pastry, place the einkorn flour, hazelnut meal, cocoa, erythriitol and butter in the bowl of a food processor and process until it resembles dry breadcrumbs. Add the egg and process until mixture just comes together. Turn onto a work surface and shape into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest.
  2. Preheat oven to 200C/400F. Roll pastry out on a lightly floured surface to a disc large enough to fit a 22cm tart pan with removable base. Trim the edges and place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest. Line with baking paper and fill with pastry weights or dried beans. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove the paper and pastry weights and bake for a further 10 minutes or until pastry is cooked through. Cool the pastry on a wire rack while prepare the filling.
  3. Bring the cream to the boil in a small saucepan. Place the chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and stand for 3 minutes. Stir the chocolate mixture until smooth. Add in coconut oil and barley grass powder. Stir until smooth.
  4. Pour the filling into the crust. Chill for at least 4 hours or overnight until set. Dust with cacao powder if desired. | © 2018 | | © 2018 |
