Raw Snickers Cheesecake

Raw Snickers Cheesecake
By Kristie Murphy, Freya's Nourishment

INGREDIENTS

Base:
> 1 1/2 cups pecans (or your choice or nuts)
> 1/4 cup activated buckwheat (optional - gives a lovely crunch but use extra nuts if you don't have these)
> 1 tbsp coconut oil

Cheesecake:
> 2 cups soaked raw cashews
> 1/2 cup coconut oil softened
> 1/4 cup lemon juice
> 2 tbsp coconut syrup (or your choice of sweetener)
> 2 heaped tbsp of thickened cream from the top of a chilled coconut milk can
> 1 tbsp mesquite powder
> Pinch vanilla salt

Caramel:
> 4 dates
> 2 tbsp natural peanut butter
> 2 tbsp tahini
> 1 tbsp maple or coconut syrup
> 1 tbsp lemon juice
> Pinch vanilla salt

Additional ingredients - sugar free chocolate and salted peanuts (I love the kick of salt to cut the sweetness but use unsalted if you prefer)

METHOD

Base:

1. Blend nuts and buckwheat in your food processor together until a flour has formed
2. Add coconut oil and blend until smooth and well mixed
3. Press into a spring form cake tin or I use individual muffin tins
4. Freeze while the cheesecake is being made.

Cheesecake:

1. Add all ingredients to your Vitamin or blender - I start with the wet ingredients and work up to the cashews being on top
2. Blend until everything is smooth
3. Spoon over the set bases and freeze for 2 hours for individual cakes or 6 hours for a whole cake.

Caramel:

1. Soak your dates in boiling water for 15 minutes to soften - this allows you to use less dates
2. Wipe out the food processor from the base (no need for unnecessary washing up!) then add all caramel ingredients to the bowl and blend until smooth
3. Once smooth, fold through the salted peanuts
4. Remove the set cheesecake from the freezer, top with the caramel as thick or as sparingly as you desire. I doubt you will be able to resist a thick layer!
5. Drizzle over the melted chocolate.
