  • 1/2 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup dates soaked and corsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder

Vegan Cheesecake Filling

  • 3/4 cup raw cashew nuts soaked in water for 2 hours
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 vanilla bean
  • 1./4 cup raw cacao butter you can substitute for coconut oil, but then it won't be chocolaty
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice

Vegan Chocolate

  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao butter
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder



  • Cover dates with warm water for 15 min (do this only if they are not soft). Drain well. Add oats to the blender/food processor and grind. Add dates and combine well. Add cacao powder and, if necessary, a few teaspoons of soaking date water. Press the sticky mixture in an oiled 5inch springform cake pan.

Vegan Cheesecake Filling

  • Soak the cashews for 2 hours. Discard the water. Add all the filling ingredients to the clean blender and process until very smooth. Poor on the crust, flatten and put in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

Vegan chocolate

  • In a double-boiler, melt the cacao butter, whisk in maple syrup and cacao powder. Combine well. Remove the cake from the mold and poor the chocolate on top, pushing it down the sides a little bit. Place back in the freezer until ready to serve. Let thaw 15 minutes before cutting.


*If you don't want to make your own chocolate layer, simply melt dark chocolate in a double boiler.
**You can also substitute coconut oil for the cacao butter. However, the "white chocolate" flavour will be lost (it will still be delicious!)
