Pine nut, hazelnuts and honey tart

Ingredients for the filling: 40ml olive oil, 75gr caster sugar, 1 Tbsp honey, 20gr Ener-g (or 1 egg), 80ml water (only if you use Ener-g), 65gr ground hazelnuts, 20gr flour, 1 pinch salt, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 100gr pine nuts

To make the pastry put the flour, salt, oil and sugar into your food processor. Mix until it resembles fine crumbs. Keep mixing and add the Energ (or eggs), and water accordingly if you are using Energ or not. Process until the dough comes together. Wrap and chill for about 20 minutes.
In the meantime prepare the filling, using the processor mix. Add oil, sugar, honey, Energ (or eggs), water (only if you are using Energ), ground hazelnuts, flour, salt and baking powder.
Mix for a couple of minute until you get a smooth cream.
Heat the oven at 190 C (375 F)
Lightly coat a loose-based flan tin with oil, with your fingers, work the dough inside towards the edges to form the borders.
Spoon in the filling and spread with a spoon smoothing the surface. Bake for 10 minutes.
Genly remove it from the oven and scatter the pine nuts on top of the filling. Bake for another 15 minutes and thats it!

although no chocolate or cocoa is in the ingredients of this tart, it tastes of chocolate nevertheless. Hazelnuts must remind me of Nutella, I dont know, but its interesting! :)
