Pumpkin Filling:

Chocolate Ganache:

For Serving:


For the Crust:

  • Add the hazelnut flour, coconut, vanilla, and salt to a food processor and then pulse a few times to combine. Pulse in the dates and then process until it forms a crumbly dough. Drizzle in the coconut oil with the motor running, and continue processing until it comes together to form a dough that holds together when you squeeze it in your hands.
  • Press the dough into the bottom and about 1 1/2 inches up the sides of an 8 or 9-inch springform pan or a tart pan.
  • For the Filling. Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and process until smooth and creamy, about 2 to 3 minutes, tamping down as necessary.
  • Spread the pumpkin filling out in the prepared crust. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

For the Ganache:

  • Once the pumpkin filling is set, make the ganache.
  • Heat the coconut milk to simmering in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the chocolate to a medium heat-safe bowl and pour the hot coconut milk over it. Let it sit 10 minutes and then whisk the mixture until smooth.
  • Spread the chocolate on top of the pumpkin filling.

To Serve:

  • Cool to room temperature, and then cover and refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 1 hour.
  • If desired, top with whipped coconut “cream” and freshly-grated nutmeg; serve.


  • If the dates aren’t soft, soak them in hot water for 3 minutes and then drain before using.
  • For the chocolate for the ganache, look for stevia-sweetened, dairy-free, sugar-free, soy-free, and gluten-free chocolate to keep this paleo.
  • To make this Pumpkin Tart Recipe up to 5 days ahead, just cover it, keep it in the fridge, and hold off on adding the whipped cream until right before serving.
