Ingredients

 

MAKES 4

 

FOR THE BASE

 

50g Almonds

 

70g Dates

 

30g Oats

 

2 tbsp Coconut oil, melted

 

1 tbsp Cocoa powder

 

 

FOR THE FILLING

 

300g Cashew Nuts

 

200g Raspberries

 

100ml Maple syrup

 

35g ‘Very Vanilla’ Protein Powder

 

4 tbsp Coconut oil, melted

Method

 

FOR THE BASE

 

Put the almonds and dates into a food processor or blender and process until finely chopped.

 

Add the oats, cocoa powder and coconut oil and process until it is well mixed. If you squeeze some mixture in your hand it should clump together. If it doesn’t quite hold together then add a little water and mix again.

 

Set 4 heart shaped moulds onto a small baking tray or plate and press the mixture firmly into the bases.

 

 

FOR THE FILLING

 

Soak the cashew nuts overnight or quick soak them for 30 minutes in boiling water.

Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Spoon into the moulds and smooth the tops. Put in the freezer to set.

 

When set you can take the moulds off the baking tray and wrap a warm cloth around them for a few seconds. Then you should be able to push the cakes out from the bottom. Do this about 15 minutes before you want to eat them to give them time to soften up.

 

Garnish with fruit.
