vegan cheesecake, vegan dessert recipe



400 g raw cashews

160 g maple syrup

20 g lemon juice

10 g shredded coconut

6 tbsp melted coconut oil

3 tbsp melted coconut butter

3 heaping tbsp cacao powder

½ tsp vanilla powder

4 fresh figs + some more for decoration


140 g almonds

40 g pecan nuts

35 g shredded coconut

2 tbsp maple syrup


1. You can soak the cashews up to 24 hours prior to using them. Simply take a big bowl, fill with the nuts and filtered water. Have in mind that the nuts will soak up water, so leave room for that.

2. Take your food processor, add the almonds and pecan nuts. Pulse them until you have almond flour.
