  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • ¼ cup raw cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ cup packed pitted Medjool dates
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil room temperature (not melted)
  • 5 tablespoons maple syrup divided use
  • 1 cup raw cashews covered with water and soaked at room temperature for 8-24 hours
  • teaspoons ground cinnamon divided use
  • 1 medium sweet apple such as Gala or Honeycrisp, cored and diced
  • 3 tablespoons dried cranberries preferably fruit juice sweetened
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  • In a food processor fitted with the steel blade, process the oats, almonds, cacao powder, and salt until finely ground, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the dates, coconut oil, and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
  • Process to combine. The dough should hold together when pinched between your fingers.
  • On a work surface, press the dough into a cohesive mass.
  • Divide it into quarters.
  • Divide each quarter into 3 pieces, yielding 12 pieces of dough in total.
  • Press each piece of dough between your hands to form disks about 2½ – 3 inches in diameter.
  • Working with 1 disk at a time, use your fingers to carefully pull up the edges of the dough disk to form a raised rim, resulting in a small tart shell.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough disks.
  • Place the tart shells on a parchment-lined baking sheet and freeze for 15-20 minutes. (The tart shells can be made up to 1 week in advance. Store the frozen shells in an airtight container in the freezer.)
  • Clean out the food processor.
  • Drain the cashews and add them to the food processor along with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, 1 tablespoon of water, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
  • Process until creamy and smooth, adding more water 1 tablespoon at a time if needed to form a thick cream. It should be about the consistency of softened butter or cream cheese. (The cashew cream can be made up to 2 days in advance. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.)
  • Core and dice the apple and place it in a medium bowl.
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon, cranberries, and lemon juice. Toss to combine.
  • Spoon about 1 tablespoon of cashew cream into each tart shell.
  • Divide the apple mixture evenly among the tarts.
  • Serve chilled or at room temperature. (The assembled tarts can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours.)
