Keto Chocolate Peanut Butter Tarts

Keto Recipes > Dessert

Chocolate and peanut butter are just a match that are made to be together (cue Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake). It’s rich, it’s amazingly tasty, and it’s something you just have to try for yourself! These chocolate peanut butter tarts are incredibly rich and filling. Each one is made to share and is full of fat and have lots of fiber. They’re made with a flaxseed crust and a delicious layer of peanut butter. Over top, the key ingredient for the rich, velvety texture is avocado!

Avocado is an awesome pantry staple to always have around on a ketogenic diet. I used to hate them, but once you start experimenting with them, they’re absolutely awesome. Just a sprinkle of salt and pepper and it can accompany just about any savory dish. Or, if you want to go sweet – you can do exactly what we did here.

Choco Tarts 4

If any of you have had the chance to try chocolate avocado pudding, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about for the top layer. It adds the perfect texture of soft creaminess to the richness of the peanut butter and crust. The best thing is, you can’t taste the avocado, so it’s like a really decadent mousse being laid on the top of your tart.
