Don’t judge this tart before you try it! Deceptively decadent, its chocolatey interior is framed by a nutty, crumbly gluten-free crust. Cocoa powder, dark chocolate and white beans (the secret ingredient here) provide a fudgy brownie taste and texture along with a dose of antioxidants and protein. This divine dessert is a crowd-pleaser for both vegans and non-vegans alike and the gorgeous presentation makes it perfect for the holidays.
