Vegan and Gluten Free Chocolate Ganache Tart

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

My signature tart made gluten free. This basic dark chocolate ganache tart can now be made gluten free, dairy free, and vegan for those that need it! And won’t they be happy they got to enjoy a little slice of heaven at your house! This Gluten Free Chocolate Ganache Tart is delectable!

These tarts are bakery quality but at way less the cost

I have been making these tarts for many years. They can pass for a bakery item, so if you need a dessert to bring to a restaurant for a birthday or other celebration, try this one for the dairy free, vegan, or gluten free person. Not many bakeries have a gluten free version of the chocolate ganache tart, let alone a vegan or dairy free version. Whip this up easily and people will be impressed! Plus, you’ll also save loads on making it yourself!

Your other guests will be so happy to get to have a slice too, and honestly they will not even know the difference. The shortbread crust holds up so well and is so crisp and perfect for this dessert.

Use the berry combination that you like!

The berries add a little sweetness to the dark chocolate as does the creamer in the ganache. Don’t have time to decorate the tart? Simply add a scattering of berries and it will still look pretty! Slice the strawberries or simply leave whole.

For a gluten-free butter, we usually opt for Earth Balance Vegan Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free Butter Substitute but you can substitute with another vegan, dairy free, gluten-free butter.

Don’t have a tart pan with a removable bottom?

Don’t have a tart pan with a removable bottom? Although it is much easier to use a tart pan with a removable bottom, you definitely can use a pie plate or a quiche pan. Just be sure use parchment at the bottom, and lightly grease and flour the sides of your pie pan or quiche pan. Or find a inexpensive non-stick versions of the springform or tart pan with a removable bottom at Ross or Marshalls,
