For the Crust
½ cup/40g unsweetened shredded coconut
1 ½ cups/190g almond flour
2 Tablespoons/ 30g coconut oil
¼ tsp salt
2 Tablespoons/30 g Maple Syrup
For the Coconut Milk Ganache
1 cup/ 240ml full fat coconut milk
12 oz/280g bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Topping
1/2 cup/40g unsweetened coconut flakes
½ cup/68g raw pecans, coarsely chopped
A pinch of sea salt
Make Tart Shell:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse together almond flour, salt and shredded coconut until finely ground. Melt together coconut oil and maple syrup and add to almond flour and coconut mixture, pulse until coarse crumbs form (dough should clump together when squeezed with fingers).
Transfer dough to a greased 9-inch tart pan with a removable bottom. Using a measuring cup or your fingers, evenly press dough in bottom and up sides of pan.
Bake in center of oven until golden and firm, about 15- 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, at least 1 hour.
Spread the chopped pecans and shredded coconut evenly over a sheet pan and bake until lightly golden (about 3-5 minutes). Set aside.
Place chopped chocolate in a large mixing bowl. In a small saucepan, bring coconut milk to a boil. Pour hot coconut milk over chocolate and let stand 1 minute, then stir until smooth and creamy. Mix in vanilla extract.
Pour chocolate into cooled tart shell. Lightly sprinkle toasted pecans and coconut across the top. Sprinkle with a pinch of flaky sea salt if desired. Chill for at least one hour or until set and serve.
