Cookie Dough Chocolate Tart

This cookie dough chocolate tart is such a crowed pleaser! It’s my go-to dessert when I’m expecting guests since it’s so easy to make and so decadent.

Made using healthier ingredients like oats, peanut butter and dark chocolate, yet tastes like a super naughty treat. It’s no-bake making it so easy to put together and it tastes 100 times better than any dessert you can get from the shops. It’s especially perfect for anyone who loves chocolate and peanut butter!

No-bake cookie dough is one of the best things ever. What’s even better is cookie dough paired with a velvety chocolate ganache. I’ve been making this simple peanut butter cookie dough for years and it occurred to me that it would make an amazing base for a tart, and I was right! The base is soft and gooey and the chocolate centre is rich and smooth. The perfect match of flavours and textures in my opinion.

What you need to make this cookie dough chocolate tart:

Oats – Oats are a great substitute to plain flour in many recipes, including baked and no-bake treats like this one. They’re higher in fibre and generally better for you. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but can be cross-contaminated with gluten when handled in the same facilities as other gluten containing grains. If you want the recipe to be gluten-free, make sure you pick up gluten-free oats (available in most supermarkets).

Coconut oil – this will add some richness to the base, but also act as a binder to help cold everything together. 

Maple syrup – again, this acts as a binder, but also adds a little sweetness to the base. You can use other liquid sweeteners like honey, agave, rice syrup, etc.

Peanut butter – I love using nut butters in my treats as a healthier alternative to vegetable oils or butter. They work really well in no-bake treats. Any nut butter will work here, or you can use tahini/seed butter to make the recipe nut-free.

Chocolate chips – because what’s cookie dough without chocolate chips?

Coconut cream – to make the filling thick and luscious, you’ll only need the creamy/solid of a can of full fat coconut milk. You can separate the coconut solids from the liquid by refrigerating a can overnight.

Dark chocolate – i prefer using 70% or over, but you can use any chocolate you prefer.
