Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment:
20 6-inch tart molds
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the almond flour, coconut oil and honey on low speed until you reach a semi-clumpy consistency, it should feel damp and moldable, similar to modeling clay.
  3. Separate and spread the mixture evenly into 20 6-inch tart pans. Place the tart pans on sheet trays and bake until they rise a bit, look toasty and the excess coconut oil bakes off, 18 to 20 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan set over medium heat, bring the coconut milk to a simmer. Whisk in the ancho powder, cayenne pepper, pasilla powder and salt.
  5. Place the chocolate in a large bowl. Pour the simmering coconut milk over the chocolate and whisk until melted. Reserve for the tart shells.
  6. Fill each shell evenly with the chocolate coconut ganache. Allow the ganache to set at room temperature or in the refrigerator, 1 to 2 hours.
  7. Serve the tarts cold.
