Coffee Tart

I have always wondered what is so magical about coffee that literally almost every human being drinks it. Linn always seemed fascinated about it as she already drank and enjoyed it when she was little. I didn’t and Isabel neither but that changed and nowadays I, strangely, like to drink coffee. However, when we explored and tried this cake for the first time, my relationship with coffee changed quickly and now we not only enjoy drinking coffee but also like to eat it. This coffee cake is creamy, refreshing, and uses relatively simple ingredients. It is also great for the summer as it is a no-bake cake and therefore more than cooling. Fresh, non-dairy yogurt and coffee come together in this recipe for a fantastic, refreshing taste. So if you are in need of a cooling treat, I recommend trying this cake!

Coffee Tart Ingredients

  • Coffee - When it comes to the type of coffee you want to use the strongest possible one (the only real type ;).

  • Oats - We almost always use large oats in our recipes simply because we literally always have this type at home.

  • Yogurt - Depending on what we have left in the fridge, we use either vanilla yogurt (usually oat or almond based) or plain unsweetened yogurt.

  • Cashew Butter - If you can't get cashew butter, don't like it, or are allergic (is that even possible :0?) to cashew butter, you could probably substitute another nut or seed butter instead. Note, however, that cashew butter is among the creamiest nut butters, so not only does the base taste change, but most likely the texture as well.

  • Toppings - Adding toppings to the cake is not only good for making the cake look even more appealing, but it also adds extra flavor. You could use ingredients like; cacao nibs, crushed coffee beans, grated dark chocolate, etc.

Coffee Tart Tips

  • Timing - Honestly this tart is ready in seconds but what takes so long is the actual resting time of this tart as it needs to be in the fridge for at least 1 hour to become firm.

  • Resting - The resting time in this recipe is particularly important as it takes time for the agar-agar to become firm enough. So, giving this tart even more than 1 hour will be even better!


Easy - 8 slices - ~1 hour


  • 2 cups Oats

  • ⅓ cup Melted Coconut Oil

  • ¼ cup Cashew Butter

  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup


  • 1 ½ cups Yogurt

  • ½ cup Coffee

  • ¼ cup Maple Syrup

  • 1 tbsp Agar Agar


  1. Prepare a ½ cup of strong coffee and let it cool.

  2. For the base, melt the coconut oil and mix with the cashew butter, oats and maple syrup.

  3. Use a non-stick Springform (24 cm) and press the base firmly into the pan, making sure the crust layer is even on the bottom and sides.

  4. For the filling, bring the coffee with the agar agar to a boil and remove the pot from the heat. Then, slowly mix it with the yogurt and maple syrup and pour it over the crust.

  5. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

  6. Before serving, sprinkle some of your favorite toppings (*see notes) onto the tart and enjoy!
