This delicious chocolate tart is sweetened with dates and maple syrup. The crust is made of wholesome ingredients including pecans, hemp seeds, and oats. The most surprising ingredient in this tart is the avocado. It adds a rich, creamy texture when combined with the coconut oil and milk to this luscious and smooth filling. I bet you won’t even know it’s there!
