Tart Shell Ingredients:

  • 1 cup pecans raw
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Caramel Layer Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • ¼ cup non dairy milk

Ganache Layer Ingredients:

  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup non dairy milk

Extra Ingredients:

  • Pecans
  • Sea Salt


For the Tart Crust:

  • In small food processor, combine pecans, maple syrup and cinnamon and blend until fine and sticky.
  • Spoon about 2-3 tablespoons of crust into the cavities of a paper lined cupcake tray(we like to use silicone cupcake liners because they are more sturdy, nonstick and reusable).
  • Press the crust into the bottom of the cupcake liner, and push up onto the sides, creating a hollow tart shell.
  • Place in freezer and begin caramel layer.

For the Caramel Layer:

  • Combine coconut sugar, melted coconut oil, molasses and non dairy milk in small saucepan and let come to a simmer on medium heat.
  • Once it starts to bubble, set timer for 9 minutes and whisk constantly.
  • As it gets closer to 9 minutes, you will notice it turn into a thick caramel sauce consistency.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • While cooling, begin ganache layer.

Ganache Layer Instructions:

  • Place chips in shallow small bowl, set aside.
  • In small saucepan, heat non dairy milk on med-high until it just starts to boil.
  • Take off heat and pour over chocolate chips.
  • Let it sit for 10 seconds before whisking together.
  • A thick ganache will form, set aside.


  • Peel off cupcake liners so there is just a crust exposed and place each one on a plate.
  • Spoon a layer of the cooled caramel on the bottom of each tart, followed by a layer of ganache.
  • Sprinkle chopped nuts over the chocolate ganache, followed by a pinch of sea salt.
  • Let set up in fridge for 10 minutes before enjoying!
