Quick and Easy Chocolate Cheesecake

the bottom

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons honey*
  • 3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon coconut cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon concentrated natural vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

the top

  • 6 tablespoons cashew butter**
  • 3 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid
  • 3 tablespoons coconut cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  1. Line an 18cm square cake tin with baking paper over-hanging the sides for easy removal.
  2. Place the ingredients for the bottom layer into your processor and blend at high speed until the mixture resembles a sticky crumb. Press the mixture into the base of your prepared tin.
  3. Place the ingredients for the top layer into your processor and blend at medium speed until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Try not to over-blend. Pour the mixture over your base and place in the fridge to set.
  4. Slice. Serve. Eat and enjoy.

*you can use rice malt syrup if you prefer.

**cashew butter / spread is readily available in the health section of the supermarket and from health food stores. Alternatively you can easily whip up your own, here is our recipe.

notes –

  • I place the slice into the freezer for 20 minutes prior to slicing. Once sliced this can be stored and served straight from the fridge or freezer, it will not be stable at room temperature.

    Just wondered what other nuts can be used as allergic to cashews please

    • I have only made it this way but you could try almonds and almond butter. You may need to add extra wet ingredients to the base to ensure it binds. I hope this helps. x

    How many calories ? and if you cant have coconut can you replace with something else?

  • Cass

    Wondering about adding peppermint oil to the top layer for choc mint cheesecake, or orange oil for Jaffa cheesecake, or adapting it and adding a berry middle or caramel middle??!! 😍😍 looking forward to making this for one of my cafes!

    I made this this afternoon and the whole family loved it, even my fussy 3.5 Year old devoured it and asked for more. Thanks for another delish recipe!
