Guilt-free Chocolate Tart

Guilt Free Chocolate Tart

It’s difficult when you want to eat something sinful which is guilt-free as well. Everyone at home has been counting calories and trying to loose weight. I am also worried about the few extra inches that I have managed to pile on my waist. But you know how much I love to be in the kitchen, next to my oven 🙂


That is how this Guilt-free Chocolate Tart happened. And I am more than happy that I tried something like this. I have always been attracted to Tarts displayed up at bakeries. And always end up disappointed when I try a slice. The basic pie crust never appeals to me. Mostly I end up eating the filling and leaving the tart crust as it is.

But the crust of this Guilt-free Chocolate Tart is so amazing. It is healthy and tasty too. The usual pie or tart crust recipe asks for butter, flour and sugar. But this is a crunchy sweet tart crust without any butter and sugar. This is a perfect recipe to celebrate the arrival of the lovely delhi winters. The early morning chill reminds me how much I miss this season through out the year.

The sweet smell of the festive season that is round the corner is such a happy smell. I love this time of the year !! Back to the Guilt-free Chocolate Tart. It’s a very simple recipe and shouts chocolate when you eat it 😀
