Steemit Iron Chef 2018 Act 01 Round 05: Raw Vegan Mini Cinnamon-Cashew Cheesecake

Nuts are perfect options for healthy fats and they are very delicious, as well. I love making cakes, so I came up with this recipe in order to enter the #steemit-ironchef contest held by @progressivechef.

These little cheese cake bites are so creamy and delicious. They are 100% gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free and super easy to make.

Recipe:

Base:

1/2 cup dates
2/3 cup pecans

Cream:

1 1/2 cup cashews soaked
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp coconut cream
1/2 cup agave syrup

  1. For the base, put the pecans in the food processor to chop them. Then set them aside and do the same with the dates until they form a ball in the food processor. Mix both ingredients together. Scoop a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into silicone muffin forms and press it with your fingers.

  2. For the cream, add all the ingredients to a blender and mix until very smooth. Divide the filling within the muffin tins and tap them a few times to release the air bubbles.

  3. Put them in the freezer for 5-6 hours, then you will be able to easily press them out from the silicone forms.
    You can leave them on the kitchen table if you'd like to eat them soon, or just keep them in the refrigerator. You can put any fruits or nut butter on the top for some extra flavor.

Haha you are right my Dear, not easy for sure :D

These look so delicious and actually seem easy enough that even I could stand a chance of making them. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

Haha @patrickulrich I'm sure you'd be able to make it yourself :) It is very simple and easy. So go ahead ;)

This is yummy! I made this in the past. Healthy and super easy to make! Thank you for sharing!

This is what I love about raw cakes. They are usually super easy to make, almost impossible to mess up the recipe, and taste so much better than regular cakes.

These look yummy! I've never made vegan cheesecake before. My significant other loves cheesecake! I think I'm going to make these for him today for valentines day! Thank you for the recipe and inspiration.

·

You are very welcome my Dear! Let me know if you tried them and how it was :)

Mm my weak spot it cheesecakes! I actually told my GF that I don't like them so she never has to witness me destroy them while I eat them

·

Simple, pure and beautiful! And healthy too! I love it!
