Prep Time 12 hours
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 12 hours 20 minutes



  • 1 cup (150g) Macademia nuts
  • ¾ cup (90g) oats
  • 1 cup (140g) cashews
  • 5 tablespoon maple syrup

Cranberry Layer

  • 1 cup (150g) dried cranberries (sweetened)
  • 1 cup (150g) cashews soaked
  • 3 tablespoon almond butter
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil optional

White Chocolate Layer

  • 100 g (vegan) white chocolate
  • 1 cup (230g) coconut cream (cream of unsweetened, full-fat coconut milk, see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon agar agar


  • Start by soaking the cashews for the cranberry layer in very hot water, then set aside.


  • Prepare the crust by putting all of the crust ingredients into a food processor.
  • Blend until a sticky mass forms (this might take a couple of minutes).
  • I usually don’t need to add any oil but feel free to add some coconut oil.
  • Once all the ingredients are broken down, press the crust into a cake tin, using a spoon and your fingers.

Cranberry Layer

  • To prepare the cranberry layer, place all the ingredients into your food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Use a spoon to smooth out the layer over the crust.
  • Once the cranberry layer is spread out evenly, put the tart in the freezer while your’re preparing the chocolate layer.

White Chocolate Layer

  • Scoop out only the solid white cream of the coconut milk (should now be at the top) and put it, together with the chocolate in a pan.
  • Slowly heat the pan and melt down chocolate and cream.
  • Add in agar agar and whisk until fully dissolved.
  • Then pour the chocolate mix over the cranberry layer and put it in the fridge for a couple of hours until set. 


  • Coconut cream: It is really important that your coconut milk has a is a full-fat milk and has a high content (of coconut extract, otherwise there won't be a lot of cream on top. I prefer using a coconut milk that contains 90% coconut extract, whereas I also tried using a 55% version and it didn't work. How many tins of coconut milk you'll need, in order to get 1 cup of coconut cream also depends on the coconut content of your milk. If the content is high, one milk is definitely enough.
