  1. Soak cashews in a bowl with water to cover, 3 hours to overnight; drain.
  2. Mix almonds, pecans, dates, 2 teaspoons coconut oil, cocoa powder, and salt together in the bowl of a food processor until finely ground and beginning to form a paste, 1 to 3 minutes. Press mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Refrigerate crust until ready to use.
  3. Process cashews in the bowl of a food processor until finely ground. Add banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla extract; blend until combined. Add 3/4 cup coconut oil in a thin stream through the feed tube while processor is running until smooth, thin filling forms. Pour filling into crust and place in the refrigerator until set, at least 4 hours.
  4. Place chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl. Heat coconut milk in a saucepan until near boiling; pour over chocolate. Whisk until smooth glaze forms. Pour over cake and refrigerate until set, at least 30 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Chopped vegan dark chocolate can be substituted with vegan dark chocolate chips, if desired.

This turned out amazing!!i didn’t have quite as many bananas to use and didn’t have vegan chocolate so I used the coconut milk with cacao and coconut sugar. I had to actually use 1/2 cup of the ...

Made it yesterday for my husband's birthday and he loved it! He said it is better than cheesecake.

This is sooooooooo good
