Low-sugar, grain-free chocolate cheesecake tarts made with local goat cream cheese. Dairy-free substitution included!
Tart shell
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 cups unsweetened medium shredded coconut
Roasted strawberries
  • 10oz. (300g) medium strawberries, hulled and sliced in half
  • 2 tablespoon demerara sugar
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon balsamic vinegar
Chocolate cheesecake filling
Optional toppings
  • shaved chocolate and shredded coconut
  1. Place chocolate for cheesecake filling in an oven safe dish and place on top of your oven. Keep it here to melt while baking the tarts and strawberries.
  2. To prepare the tart shells
  3. Preheat oven to 350F
  4. Add egg whites to coconut and stir until fully coated.
  5. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (or dab of coconut oil) and press a large spoonful of coconut mixture into each cup, pushing it evenly into the bottom and up the sides.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  7. Let cool in muffin pan before removing and placing on a cooling rack until ready to use.
  8. To prepare the roasted strawberries
  9. Increase oven temperature to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. You’ll want to use parchment for this as the strawberries get really juicy and sticky. Set aside.
  10. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add sugar, oil, vanilla, and salt. Once completely mixed, add cut strawberries and coat.
  11. Place strawberries on prepared pan and roast for 20-25 minutes, until juices thicken but are not burnt.
  12. Remove the berries and juice from the pan while still warm. Place in a small bowl, stir in balsamic vinegar, and set aside.
  13. To prepare the chocolate cheesecake filling
  14. Place cream cheese and milk to a small bowl. Stir until incorporated.
  15. Add chocolate, stir again.
  16. Divide the cream cheese mixture evenly among the coconut cups. Top with roasted strawberries, extra coconut or chocolate shavings.

Probiotic goat cheese spread is similar to cream cheese.

For a dairy-free and vegan version, use my cashew cream cheese recipe and omit the goat milk completely from this tart recipe.
