Method

  • First make the base: Place the oats in a bowl. Gently melt the coconut oil, maple syrup and nut butter then pour in and mix to form a flapjack mixture.
  • Press into the base of a 12cm loose-bottomed cake tin, set aside.
  • Now make the filling: Simply place all of the ingredients into a blender and whizz up until thick and smooth. Pour this over the base and spread out evenly. Freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • Make the raw chocolate drizzle: Gently melt the coconut oil and maple syrup then whisk in the cacao/cocoa powder to form a sauce.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the freezer and remove from the tin and drizzle over. Either slice up and serve or place back in the freezer until ready.
