White Chocolate Cranberry Tart

1 1/2 cups gluten-free oats
1/2 cup raw almonds
5 tbsp coconut oil (melted)**
2 tbsp maple syrup
cranberry layer
2 cups cranberries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup water
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp agar agar (substitute with gelatin powder 1:1 ratio)
white chocolate layer
⅔ cup coconut milk (sub with cashew milk)
1 cup raw cashews (soaked*)
¾ cup cacao butter (sub with vegan white chocolate), melted and cooled
1/3 cup maple syrup
Pinch of salt
4 tbsp vegan white chocolate, melted and cooled

For the crust add oats and almonds into a food processor. Pulse until combined and add maple syrup and coconut oil. Process into a moist mixture. Firmly press dough into the tart and press up on the sides as well. Bake at 350F for about 10-15 minutes until crust appears golden brown. Let sit for about 5-10 minutes and then transfer onto a cooling rack.

In a small saucepan add cranberries, water and maple syrup. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes over low-medium heat until cranberries have broken down. With a hand mixer puree cranberries and add a little bit of water if sauce is too thick. Add 1 tsp of agar agar powder (or gelatin powder) and simmer for another 5 minutes over low-medium heat. Set aside to cool for a couple minutes, then spread cranberry jam/sauce into the crust (½ way full) and let set in the fridge for another 15 minutes.

In the meantime prepare the white chocolate layer. Melt white chocolate and cacao butter in a small saucepan over low heat and set aside.

In a food processor or high speed blender add cashews, maple syrup and coconut milk. Process until completely smooth. Add melted chocolate/cacao butter and process until combined. Pour white chocolate mixture into the tart and let set in the refrigerator for about 2-3 hours. Garnish with sugar coated cranberries and white chocolate chips and serve immediately.
Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
