Equipment

  • Food Processor or Strong Blender

Ingredients
  

Bottom Crust Layer

  • 1 cup Medjool Dates Pitted  (soaked in warm water for 10 minutes then drained)
  • 1 cup raw walnuts or almonds

Middle Layer

  • 1.5 cups raw cashews  (soaked for 1 hour or overnight)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • cup coconut oil melted
  • ½ cup full fat coconut milk
  • ½ cup maple syrup

Top Later

  • 1 cup raw cashews  (soaked for 1 hour or overnight)
  • 4 tbsp almond or peanut butter
  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup salt

Instructions
 

For Top Layer

  • Add dates to a food processor and blend until small bits remain and it forms into a ball. Remove and set aside.
  • Next add nuts and process into a meal. Then add dates back in and blend until a loose dough forms.
  • Press this dough into the base of muffin pans. I have a silicone tray so I do not grease it but you can use a little coconut oil or use cupcake liners.

For Middle Layer

  • Add all middle layer ingredients to a food processor or blender and mix until very smooth.
  • Divide filling evenly among the muffin tins. Tap a few times to release any air bubbles, then cover with plastic wrap and freeze until hard - about 2 hours

For Top Layer

  • Add all top layer ingredients to a food processor or blender. Mix until very smooth.
  • Divide evenly among the muffin tins pouring mixture over top of the middle layer mixture. Tap again to remove air bubbles. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze until hard (3-6 hours).

Notes

Take out of freezer 10-15 minutes before serving to allow cheesecake cups to soften slightly.
