  • Yield: 8 servings 1x


This rich Chocolate Pumpkin Tart is full of decadent chocolate and creamy pumpkin spices with just the right amount of sweetness.








  1. Process the nuts, in a food processor until they are very fine.
  2. Add the dates, cacao powder, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
  3. Process until it is sticky with medium texture.
  4. Press into an 8-inch tart pan. The easiest way is to do the sides first and work toward the middle.
  5. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.


  1. Put all the filling ingredients (pumpkin, raw cacao, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice) into a food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Pour into prepared pan.
  3. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours before serving.
  4. To garnish, dust with cacao powder sprinkled through a very fine strainer. Sprinkle with salt if using.
  5. Serve chilled. Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
