I know, there have been quite a lot of cheesecake recipes lately, however, it’s to be expected since this is my favourite dessert. If you are in the mood for something else, just check out the vegan dessert section.

So let’s get down to this small but oh-so-delicious treat that I made. It’s a creamy and fluffy coconut cream centre with a toffee-like taste crust, that is pure perfection in your mouth paired with the fresh raspberries.

I created this since I wanted something small, bite-sized and something that I could have as a dessert in the evening as I get very jacked on raw cacao (!) and can not sleep from it.

Carob has good calcium, selenium and antioxidant properties, as well as is high in fibre and does not contain any tyramine (a substance that can trigger migraines for some people) and also, has a toffee-like taste that does not make me hyper-

For the crust, I used a small steel form that is commonly used in Sweden for making a small cake called mazarine, they have approx 3-4 cm in radius and come in two different shapes.

Yields: 8 – 10 st depending on the thickness of the crust

Filling
  • 2,5 dl coconut cream
  • 3 tbsp date syrup
  • 1 tbsp bourbon vanilla powder
Base 
  • 2,5 dl  raw cashew nuts
  • 8 pcs fresh dates
  • 3 tbsp carob powder
  • 1 tbsp raw coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon powder
  • 1,5 tsp of cardamom powder
  • 1 pinch of Himalayan pink salt
Decoration Ideas:
  • Fresh berries
  • Raw cacao nibs
  • Date syrup
Instructions
  1. Mix all the ingredients for the base in a food processor until as evenly and smoothly as possible. Add more nuts if the mixture is too wet from the dates. The drier the better. Since the filling will make the base quite moist. The base should be a finely milled crumble. When you press and form it, it should stock together.
  2. Scrape out the dough from the food processor, add small balls into each form, press out the base into each form and make an indent in the middle. Add to the fridge and let cool off and set, preferably overnight. to ensure the best result.carob-cheesecake-base

  4. Add the filling to each dish and decorate your cheesecakes with fresh berries and other yummy and beautiful things.
  5. Place in the fridge. Let stand overnight to set.
