Keto chocolate ganache tart with pecan and dried cranberries is sugar free chocolate tart. Crispy crust filled with dark chocolate ganache, gluten free and delicious!
I love sugar free chocolate tart, especially with a cup of coffee or tea in the afternoon. Now when it's cold outside, a great book and a piece of this delicious low carb chocolate ganache tart are so comforting and heartwarming.
However, this keto chocolate tart with pecan nuts and dried cranberries is delicious during the summer heat too, especially when cold straight from the fridge.
HOW TO MAKE KETO CHOCOLATE GANACHE TART WITH PECAN AND DRIED CRANBERRIES
LOW CARB CHOCOLATE TART CRUST
This keto chocolate crust is flavorful, really rich in taste and crispy. It's easy to make and it's baked in 8 to 10 minutes only.
For sugar free crust you will need almond flour, some shredded coconut and unsweetened cocoa, 1 egg, pinch of salt, butter and low carb sweetener you like the best. I was using erythritol and it works great. Probably xylitol would be great too. Just be careful with xylitol if you have a dog.
To make the crust, you will need to combine all ingredients with spatula or in a food processor. When all combined, press it in a small cake tray of 17 cm/7 inch diameter, layered with a parchment paper and bake in a preheated oven on 180 C/350 F for 8 to 10 minutes.
When baked it won't be firm, you will need to leave it to rest and cool before it becomes firm and crispy.
SUGAR FREE DARK CHOCOLATE GANACHE
Sugar free dark chocolate ganache is easy to make. You will need to heat the heavy whipping cream in a double boiler, sauce pan or in a microwave. If you have microwave, I highly recommend you to use it. In microwave, ganache is done in less than a minute!
Just heat the heavy whipping cream and before it starts to boil add chopped sugar free dark chocolate. Remove from the heat and stir until chocolate is completely melted. I use dark chocolate sweetened with erythritol and stevia and it gives perfect ganache when combined with heavy whipping cream.
If using dark chocolate without any sweetener, just add 1 TBS of erythritol or 2 drops stevia.
To make this ganache completely perfect, I add 2 drops of edible orange essential oil. I always use this edible essential oil, and here is my affiliate link if you wish to buy.

PECAN AND DRIED UNSWEETENED CRANBERRIES
Pecan nuts and dried unsweetened cranberries are so good match with chocolate ganache and crispy crust. I find unsweetened cranberries in healthy and organic local stores, you can also make them in your oven.
