Ingredients

For the liquid mixture:

  • 1 14 oz (400 ml) can coconut milk
  • 1 Tbs organic vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (80 g) coconut blossom sugar
  • 3/4 cup (100 g) cashew nuts, soaked for 10 minutes in hot water
  • 2 shots good quality coffee

For the chocolate filling:

  • 6 oz (180 g) good vegan chocolate
  • 1 Tbs coconut blossom sugar

For the dough:

  • 8 oz (250 g) vegan and gluten free crackers
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 1 cup (240 ml) coconut milk mixture
  • 1/3 cup (80 g) coconut blossom sugar

For the Caramel Sauce (optional):

  • 1 Tbs coconut Blossom Sugar
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cashew butter
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) water

For the Roasted Cashews (optional):

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs coconut blossom sugar
  • 1/4 cup (30 g) cashews roughly chopped

Instructions

To make the milk mixture:

  1. Preheat oven to 390°F/200°C.
  2. First, prepare the milk mixture by combining the coconut milk, vanilla extract, coconut blossom sugar, soaked cashew nuts, and coffee in a blender and process until smooth.

To make the dough:

  1. Finely crush the crackers in a bowl. Add coconut oil (melted), coconut blossom sugar, and one cup of the milk mixture. Knead to a sticky dough.
  2. Slightly grease a baking dish (I use a 7 inch (18 cm) spring form) and press the dough firmly on the bottom.
  3. Bake the dough for 8 minutes, then set aside.

To make the filling:

  1. In a sauce pan, melt the chocolate in the remaining milk mixture and add the coconut blossom sugar. When smooth, pour over the baked dough. Flatten it out, then set aside to cool and harden.

For the optional Caramel Sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat.

For the optional Roasted Cashews:

  1. Chop the cashews, mix with coconut blossom sugar and oil. Then briefly roast in the oven.
