This dessert is really decadent and it is hard to believe that is made using healthy ingredients. It is also gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. The recipe below has 2 versions of filling: one using Wild Orange Essential Oil, and one using fresh oranges (zest and juice). If you can’t get enough of that classic combination of chocolate and orange you will love this raw tart recipe.
