This chocolate peanut butter tart is vegan, gluten-free and the best part is that is super easy to make and it only requires 6 ingredients. The hardest is to wait for it to set!



  • Crust
  • 3 cups salted gluten-free pretzels (the twisted kind) plus a few extra to decorate to top
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp all-natural peanut butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • Filling
  • 1 cup vegan mini chocolate chips (here we used Enjoy Life )
  • 1 cup full-fat canned coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter plus 2 tsp to swirl at the top (optional), at room temperature


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F
  2. Place the pretzels in a food processor and pulse until ground. Add melted coconut oil, peanut butter and maple syrup and pulse until well combined
  3. Transfer the pretzel mixture into a non-stick 11"x1.5"  tart pan with a removable bottom  Gently press it evenly into the pan, so it comes up the sides (using the edge of a measuring cup or glass to press the sides will help you get an even thickness). Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes. Let it cool slightly and place it in the refrigerator until it cools completely and the crust hardens
  4. To prepare the filling, place the chocolate chips in a large glass or metal heatproof bowl. Heat the coconut milk in a saucepan over medium heat, until bubbles start to form on the sides and pour over the chocolate chips. Let the coconut milk and chocolate chips sit for 2-3 minutes undisturbed.
  5. Whisk gently until all the chocolate has melted and it is smooth. Whisk in the peanut butter until well incorporated.
  6. Pour the chocolate mixture over the cooled tart shell. Decorate with pretzels and 2 teaspoons of peanut butter (drop about 5 dollops on the surface and very gentry, swirl using the tip of the whisk). Refrigerate for at least 3 hours
