Add the wet ingredients and pulse until a dough forms.

Lightly grease your tins with coconut oil.

Press the dough down into your tins, keeping the shell around 5mm thick.

Allow to cool completely before removing shells from the tins and filling with ganache.

Ingredients:

160g dark chocolate, vegan 

120ml coconut milk full fat

GARNISH

Chop up the dark chocolate into small chunks and place in a heatproof bowl. 

Heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan until just boiling, then add it to the chocolate and allow to sit for 1 minute. 

After a minute, stir the mixture until the chocolate is completely melted and you have a smooth, glossy mixture.

Divide evenly between the tart bases and smooth using the back of a spoon. 

Allow to set in the fridge until firm. (2-4 hours)
