Mini Cheesecakes with Chocolate Base (Raw Vegan)
Serves: 20 small (1 5/8″ or 4.13cm) cup cakes sized cheesecakes (each make 1 oz total in size)
1 cup of almond meal (1 cup of almonds blended into a fine meal consistency)

OR instead of making the base you could Purchase 3 bars (1.5 oz) of Noah’s Rock’n Raw Chocolates.

For cheesecake filling…
3/4 cup of lemon juice (about 2 large lemons)
3 cups of cashews soaked in water for 4 hours
3/4 cup of maple syrup, raw honey or raw agave
3/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1. Make the base (unless you are using Noah’s Rock’n Raw Chocolates already made). Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix. It should be dry but moist enough to pat into the cup cakes. Hand pat them into the cup cakes.
2. Make the cheesecake filling. Add all ingredients to a powerful blender like the VITAMIX until it is very smooth and light. Then pour it on top of the chocolate base in the cup cakes!
3. Freeze for 1 hour. Keep in fridge or freezer!
