I think you'll love me for this recipe. This chocolate tart that you see right here is gluten free, vegan and also refined sugar free. I used oats and almond flour instead of flour. I also replaced sugar with 100% pure maple syrup from Canada. It is not only the perfect replacement for sugar but also the best option for vegans. I love making this tart and I hope you will too.
