Chocolate mooouuussee, and raspberries, and figs, oooohhhh this combination is heavenly, and if you have not yet tasted it you are missing something very good. The texture of this mousse is really creamy, it is incredibly soft and very rich, it is made with sweet potato, it also has peanut butter, dark chocolate, and it is sweetened with honey, it is really a delight, so delicious that can be eaten by spoonfuls directly from te bowl!
The crust of this tarts is made with buckwheat flour, it is a super thin, crunchy and gluten-free crust. I made this recipe a lot of times and little by little I have been perfecting it, it is easy to make, it has few ingredients and is very similar to the classic crusts of white flour and butter, although it does not has refined products or large amounts of butter, and it is even possible to make it vegan easily, you simply have to replace the egg with a vegan substitute, in the notes of the recipes I leave you some options.
The fruit on the mousse is an important touch in the recipe, since so much chocolate needs an acid counterpoint, so much chocolate can get to stick, but fresh fruit and more acid like raspberries, and not too sweet, like figs, go perfect with chocolate.

- 1/2 cup raw cacao powder 45g
- 1/3 cup cold water 75ml
- 1/4 cup liquid oil 60ml

In a bowl put the sugar, oil and egg all together and beat well. Add the rest of the ingredients except the water and mix. Add the water little by little until you get a homogeneous dough, elastic but not sticky
Stretch the dough to a thickness of 2mm. Put it in a rectangular tart mold of 20x8cm with parchment paper, puncture with a fork the whole surface and bake for 12-15 minutes or until it is crispy. Set aside
Melt the chocolate in a water bath or microwave and process together with the rest of the ingredients of the mousse until it is a homogeneous and creamy mixture, put on the crust and cool.
Top with figs and berries and enjoy
