Chocolate Ganache Tart with Macaroon Crust

Rich sugar-free chocolate ganache poured into a coconut macaroon crust. The most heavenly of low carb desserts and it’s incredibly easy to make!

Low Carb Chocolate Ganache Macaroon TartYou may recall a few months ago, I floated out a very important, possibly ground breaking theory. It’s a simple theory but it’s quite spectacular: Chocolate ganache fixes everything. At the time, I was mostly referring to the fact that it helps mask my incredibly poor cake-frosting abilities under a lovely layer of rich chocolate-y goodness. I really am remarkably bad at frosting cakes but I am also remarkably good at pouring ganache over them. And then no one notices my patchy, messy frosting. But the reality is that chocolate ganache is so much more than a distraction from messy frosting. Ever so much more. Because chocolate ganache just might be one of the richest, tastiest, most delicious chocolate creations in all the world. And as such, it has great power. It has the power to soothe ruffled nerves and brighten the lousiest of days. It can create bonds of friendship in the unlikeliest of people. Everyone swoons at chocolate ganache, so if ever you are in a situation of high tension with bitter foes ready to do battle, just whip up some chocolate ganache. Peace is restored. Everyone is happy. Until the ganache is gone. Then you are screwed!

Low Carb Chocolate Energy Bites RecipeWhat’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. And that which we call an energy bite would taste just as delicious were it to be called an energy ball. Or a protein bite. Or a protein ball. Or perhaps a protein truffle. Does it matter what I call it if it’s easy to make, full of healthy fats and protein and tastes like a chocolate brownie? Well…maybe. Many such similar things are called protein balls or energy balls. But I just couldn’t. It sounded too…ballsy. And truffles sounded too dessert-y, too sweet and perhaps a little too sophisticated. So “bites” it was – conjuring up images of cute, bite-sized, fun to eat treats. But the reality is that it hardly matters what you call these. They would taste just as good by any other name.
