- 4 cups cashews (raw, soaked, roughly 3 cups dry)
- 28oz organic pumpkin
- ¾ cup honey (raw, local, and unfiltered preferably)
- 2/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
- 2 heaped tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- ½ tablespoon nutmeg
- ½ tablespoon clove
Filling - Optional
- 1 teaspoon xantham gum
Soak your cashews for 2-4 hours in water. Just put them in a large bowl and fill to a few inches above the nuts, they will absorb a bunch of the water and become soft.
Work on the crust while those soak
Preheat the oven to 175ºC / 350ºF / Gas Mark 4 and get your ingredients together.
1 cup walnuts. 1/2 pecans. 1/2 macadamia nuts. 2 tablespoons butter.
Take that mixture and press it down into your spring form pan.
You can use a different pan but it can be a pain to get out.
Try to make it as even as possible. Start from the middle and work your way our out. Push the extra up the sides a bit but keep it thin
Here is a example of a rougher crust, it's up to personal preference but it may not hold together as well in the end.
Add the rest of the ingredients:
2 cans of pumpkin
3/4 cups of honey
2/3 cups of coconut oil
2 heaping tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon ginger
1/2 tablespoon nutmeg
1/2 tablespoon clove
1 teaspoon xantham gum (optional)
Mix until its really smooth.
Now just stick it in the freezer for a few hours and its good to go! Usually 1-3 hours is enough time.
Don't try release the form or cut it before its set or it will just run out slowly.
Remove the cheesecake from the fridge about a hour before you are ready to serve it.
It should thaw a little bit but still be cold enough to hold its form.
