Get happy today with a delicious, so dark and rich it’s nearly sinful, raw vegan ganache tart by Sayward Rebhal. If you’re a fan of chocolate you’ll be delighted by the rich flavor of truly raw cocoa powder in the the silky filling, as well as cacao nibs throughout the chocolate crust adding an unexpected crunch. Keep it cold in the freezer and enjoy as a cold treat after a healthy raw meal.


Ingredients for Crust:

  • 2 cups pecans
  • 1 cup pitted dates
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Ingredients for Filling:

  • 2 cups pre-soaked cashews
  • 1 cup cacao powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


1) Combine all crust ingredients in a food processor and blend until evenly moist. Grease a torte or pie pan with coconut oil and spread the crust with your fingers.

2) Combine all filling ingredients in the [cleaned] food processor, blending until very smooth. Pour filling into the crust and freeze or refrigerate until firm (1-3 hours). Garnish with fresh mint or berries.
