Raw Blackberry Mini “Cheesecakes”

Is been a while since I’ve made some raw treats and I have an abundance of blackberries growing so I adapted this recipe from my Raw Raspberry Cheesecakes it’s almost identical 😊 Picked some pansy flowers and chamomile flowers to decorate 🌼


Blackberry Mini “Cheesecakes”

Ingredients:
Crust :
(Extras for bliss balls or bars)
•1 Cup almonds
•1 Cup dates, soaked
•1Tbsp cacao powder
•1/4 Cup shredded coconut

Filling:
•1 Cup raw cashews, soaked overnight or at least 6hrs
•1/2 Cup blackberries
•1/4 Cup raw honey or choice
•1/4 Cup Coconut oil
•1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
•2Tbsp fresh lemon juice

Top layer:
•3/4 Cup blackberries, mashed
•1/2Tbsp raw honey (optional)
•1Tbsp chia seeds

Method:
Soak dates in hot water for about 20 minutes (fresh medjool dates don’t need to be soaked). Prepare muffin tin by cutting strips of parchment and placing in muffin tin for easy removal or use single silicone cups. In food processor blitz almonds until little bits, add dates, cacao powder and coconut and blitz until you get doughy texture. Portion out 6 tablespoon size balls and press into prepared muffin tins (use the extra dough and roll into balls or form bars for later snacks :). For top layer mash blackberries and honey or blitz in food processor, stir in chia seeds and let rest for about 10 minutes and prepare filling. Clean food processor and combine all filling ingredients until smooth, scraping sides down as needed. Divide evenly between the 6 muffin tins. Spoon top layer evenly over the tops. Place in freezer overnight. Store in freezer and allow 20min to thaw when ready to eat.

Orange Coconut Peanut Butter Balls

It’s world vegan month and I love creating raw vegan treats so I whipped up these masterpieces! Adapted somewhat from my lemon coconut truffles. These seriously  take 5 minutes to make!

image

Recipe:

Ingredients:

•1/2 cup almond meal
•1/2 cup coconut flour
•2 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
•3 Tbsp peanut butter (or any nut/seed butter)
•1Tbsp maple syrup
•1tsp pure vanilla extract
•2Tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
•1tsp orange zest
•Dash pink Himalayan salt
•Chocolate chips as desired

Method:
Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in food processor and pulse into well combined, should look somewhat crumbly but will stick together. Roll into 10 balls, place on parchment lined sheet and stick with chocolate chips if desired (if you add chocolate chips before rolling they will be harder to roll as they kinda fall apart *I did this-just extra careful). Enjoy! Store in fridge.
