  • 1 cup Pitted medjool dates
  • 1 cup Walnuts
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 cup Coconut oil
  • 1 cup Cashews
  • 1 Full fat coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp Cornflour
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 2 Banana
  • 2 tbsp Vegan margarine
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup Dark rum
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract


For the base

  • First pit cashew nuts in a bowl, boil kettle and pour over cashews. Leave to soak for 2-4 hours. To make the base – Line a 9 inch cake pan. Put medjool dates, coconut oil, salt and walnuts in a food processor and pulse untill fully combined. Pour into lined cake pan, press down with damp fingers to evenly cover the bottom. Leave to chill for 1 hour.

For the cheesecake

  • To make the coconut cheesecake– drain cashew nuts and pat dry. Add coconut milk, vanilla extract, maple syrup ( add more if you desire) and cashews to a blender. Blitz untill smooth. Tip into a medium pan and heat gently over medium heat. Add cornflour a tablespoon at a time whisking in-between well. Heat gently until you have a very thick consistency. Pour this over chilled cake base and give a wee shake to even out. Leave to chill until firm.

For the bananas

  • This needs to be done either outside or in a space that is not near anything flammable! Be careful.– slice bananas anyway you want, I sliced them into discs. Add margarine to a large non stick fry pan, add brown sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add bananas, cook for 2 mins each side. Take pan off the heat, and pour rum into it from a measuring jug. Return to heat and stand back. Shake pan to ignite rum, it will be a big flame but this will die down, leave until alcohol has burned off, shake pan again to coat bananas and cook untill glazed. Leave to cool for a bit.Top chilled cheesecake with bananas and serve immediately 👌
