Recipe For Dark Chocolate Paleo Torte


For this Dark Chocolate Torte, I went totally Paleo. I made a dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free refined sugar-free dessert. It is, however, FULL of tree nuts, so this is not allergen-free. Low carb, low sugar, high in flavor and decadence. Seriously, these little chocolate bombs were over the top in richness. And unless you are into Paleo eating, frankly, you will never guess what that creamy filling is made out of. Seriously, if I had not been given an Amazon gift card for Christmas and had not bought The Almond Flour Cookbook by blogger Elana Amsterdam, I never would have been inspired to make these tortes.

I used almond and coconut flours in the crust, sitting pretty with chocolate, coconut oil and a little more.

Oh! And the filling? It’s made out of cashews. Who knew, right? I am still shocked each time I put cashews and water in the blender that they become like pudding when heated. Seriously, this is A-May-Zing stuff.
