  • 1 ½ cups gluten-free oats
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ¼ cup almond pulp, drained (from almond milk)
  • 5 ½ tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp agave syrup (sub with maple syrup)

Jam Layer
  • 4 oz (120g) raspberry, strawberry or mixed berry jam (with a high amount of fruit)

Berry Mousse Layer
  • ¾ cup fresh strawberries, sliced & compacted
  • ¾ cup fresh raspberries
  • ¼ cup almond pulp, drained
  • 1 cup cashews, soaked for 3-4h or overnight
  • ¼ cup coconut cream (*solid part of a can full fat coconut milk stored in the fridge overnight)
  • 3 tbsp agave syrup (add more for extra sweetness)
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted

White Chocolate Layer
  • 6 oz (170g) vegan white chocolate
  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp coconut cream* (see above)
  • 1-2 tsp rosewater

Candied Rose Petals
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 24 organic pink rose petals
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar


  • heart shaped (or round) tart pan with a diameter of 8-9 inches/20-23 cm, removable bottom
  • a soft pastry brush


For a 100% vegan tart omit the candied rose petals and use berries or dried edible roses for decoration. Start by soaking the cashews in water for 3-4 hours or overnight.

Step 1 - Candied Rose Petals

Step 1 - Candied Rose Petals

Whisk the egg white and water in a small bowl.

Carefully pick up a rose petal with your fingers and lightly brush both sides with the egg/water mixture using a soft pastry brush.

Sprinkle sugar onto both sides and place the petals (in a single layer) onto a cooling rack lined with parchment paper.

Let them dry overnight, then store in an airtight container.

Step 2 - Crust

Step 2 - Crust

To make the crust grease your tart pan with coconut oil and preheat your oven at 350F/180C.

Add almonds and oats to a food processor or high-speed blender and pulse until combined.

Step 3 - Jam Layer

Step 3 - Jam Layer

Spread a thin layer of your favorite berry jam on the crust and put aside.

Step 4 - Berry Mousse Layer

Step 4 - Berry Mousse Layer

Slice the strawberries and drain the cashews.

Add them together with the raspberries, almond pulp, coconut cream, agave syrup and melted coconut oil to your blender and mix until smooth and creamy.

Carefully pour the mixture onto the jam layer leaving a little space for the white chocolate layer.

Let set in the fridge for 3h or until the layer has firmed up. (You can shorten the waiting time by putting it in the freezer instead.)

Step 5 - White Chocolate Layer

Step 5 - White Chocolate Layer

Melt the white chocolate over hot water.

Add coconut cream and stir until well combined. Don’t worry if the mixture gets a brown color here, it will brighten up again once it gets firm again.

Let cool down a few minutes before adding the rosewater. Start with 1 teaspoon and if the flowery taste is not noticeable yet you can add another teaspoon.

Spread the mixture carefully onto the berry layer.

Let set in the fridge for another 2 hours.

To get the best result and pretty layers leave the tart in the fridge overnight before cutting and serving it.

Decorate with candied rose petals and fresh or frozen berries. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. Enjoy!
