We love the incredible range of vegan cheeses from Bute Island Foods, and this gorgeous recipe is a particularly festive treat. Creamy, crumbly, Wensleydale-style cheese, sweet cranberries and crunchy oats make a winning combination.

Ingredients

  • For the flapjack layers:
  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats (gluten-free if required)
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • 6 tbsp date nectar or maple syrup
  • 4 tbsp tahini
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • -----

  • For the filling:
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple puree or stewed apples
  • 1 teaspoon mixed spice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon stevia or coconut sugar
  • 100g Bute Island Wensleydale Style Sheese with Cranberries, crumbled into small pieces
  • Dried cranberries, to decorate

  • Rating: Easy

Instructions

1 Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin with greaseproof paper.

2 Mix together the oats and ground almonds in a bowl.

3 Gently heat the nectar/syrup, tahini and coconut oil to melt, then pour into the dry ingredients and mix well to combine; you want a nice sticky mixture.

4 Place half of this in the bottom of your prepared tin and spread evenly to cover the base.

5 Mix together the apple puree/stewed apples with the mixed spice and chosen sweetener. Carefully spread this over in an even layer, reaching the sides. Sprinkle over the Sheese evenly.

6 Sprinkle over the remaining oat mixture on top to cover completely then carefully push and pack down tightly on top.

7 Bake for 30 minutes, until golden and firm. The important tip here: leave to cool fully before removing from the tin.

8 When cooled, pop the cake out from the tin and cut into 6-8 slices. Sprinkle with extra dried cranberries - now enjoy!

9 Keep any remaining slices in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
