Keto Chocolate Tart with Stabilized Whipped Cream is EASY

Don’t look at the ingredients and think this is hard. It’s a no bake tart, except for the pre-baked tart crust.

The filling part was easy to make keto friendly using Choc Zero sugar free chocolate chips, heavy cream, egg yolks and butter, making this a fairly high fat dessert. This keto chocolate tart depends on the quality of your chocolate chips, and I think Choc Zero has the best sugar free chips on the market.

You will also want to add whipped cream and a few raspberries to bring this to perfection.

The keto almond flour tart crust stands alone as most delicious and one you can use over and over to make your favorite tarts or filled pies. Made from almond flour, it is almost like a cookie crust and acts as a sort of cookie layer against the richness of the chocolate filling.

I actually saw this recipe in Cook’s Illustrated using a pastry sucreé tart crust and milk chocolate and wondered if I could make this sugar free with an almond flour crust and I actually think it should be the preferred method. It’s also easier.

Keto Tart Pastry Crust

  • Almond Flour
  • Egg
  • Butter
  • Baking Powder
  • Confectioner’s Sweetener

You must roll dough out between two pieces of parchment paper or plastic wrap. Using a tart pan with a removable bottom, place your parchment on top of the bottom, roll and then cut the circle, keeping the parchment paper on bottom.

Bake tart crust at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 8 -10 minutes.

What if you don’t have a tart pan?

You can use a pie pan and make a chocolate pie. I’ve done this both ways to make sure you can do this. Follow similar directions.

Just roll out a round to the size of the pie pan, cut and place in the pan. You will, probably have a little bit of dough left over and you can use it to make a small tart.

The Keto Chocolate Tart Process

The good news is that you don’t bake the tart. You will bake the tart crust and then cook the chocolate filling on top of the stove. The filling is poured into the cooled pan and refrigerated.

The filling will become thick and the best thing to do is take it out a half hour in advance, decorate with whipped cream. Serve in small slices as it’s very rich. This will disappear fast, but is also good the next day.

What’s So Delicious About this Keto Chocolate Tart

The tart crust tastes more like a cookie bottom and the chocolate is silky, creamy yet thick enough for dark chocolate satisfaction. It’s great with or without the whipped cream.

Make Keto Chocolate Tart One Day Ahead

You can make this dessert the day before. I tested this out also, and it tastes just as good. You can even decorate with a stabilized whipped cream, which holds its shape. Make it pretty with raspberries.

Make this for your next gathering and let me know how it went. I think you will love it.
