Basically all ingredients in this desert are healthy, such as cacao powder, which is high in antioxidants and of course all the nuts. However, this doesn’t mean you should have more than one cake per day. You could have one for breakfast or as a snack with coffee or tea and you will be satisfied.

  • ¼ cup of raw almonds
  • ¼ cup of hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup of pecans
  • ¼ cup of raw sunflower seeds
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • VANILLA LAYER
  • 1 cup of raw cashews soaked for 6 hours and rinsed
  • ¼ cup canned coconut cream
  • ¼ cup Maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp raw coconut oil melted above the steam in double boiler
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 tbsp water

  • MOCHA LAYER
  • 1 cup of raw cashews soaked for 6 hours and rinsed
  • ¼ cup canned coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup Maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp raw coconut oil melted above the steam in double boiler
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp instant coffee
  • 2 tsp rum extract or liquor of your choice; optional
  • Pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 3 tbsp water

Instructions
 

  • CRUST
  • Blend the dates with coconut oil and salt in a food processor until smooth.
  • Add the nuts and grind by pressing the pulse button. You want the nuts remain little bit chunky.
  • Have your silicon pan ready on a tray or cutting board. That way will be easier moving it to a freezer.
  • Transfer the crust mixture into a bowl and scoop 2tbsp by using mini-ice cream scoop. Place each portion in the center of the muffin form.
  • When ready, press each one down with your fingers to make it flat. I suggest to wearing surgical or plastic gloves, which helps, making the surface smooth.
  • Place into a freezer for 2 hours. Freeze for 2 hours.
  • FILLING
  • Transfer each filling into a separate bowl.
  • By using tablespoons, apply to each crust about 2 to 3 tbsp of vanilla mixture and fill the rest with mocha mixture.
  • When ready, tap the pans lightly to make them settle. Take chopstick and make swirls from vanilla to mocha. You may tap them again.
  • Place them into a freezer for 6 to 8 hours and refrigerate the leftover cream in a sealed container.
  • When ready, remove from the silicon pen on a surface lined with parchment paper and start decorating.
  • Fill the piping bag with both flavors and test making sure both colors coming out evenly.
  • Decorate your cakes and place into a freezer for an hour. Take it out for ½ hour before serving.
