Crust

  2. Three fourth cups of raisins

  3. One tablespoon of coconut sugar

  4. One teaspoon of vanilla extract

  5. A pinch of salt

Preparation:

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and mix until you get a dough ball form (this may take a couple of minutes).

  2. Use a silicone mold or muffin tray that has 12 molds. If you opt for a muffin tin, use parchment paper for lining.

  3. Roll a tablespoon of the dough in your palm to make a ball and press it into the bottom of the mold firmly until it’s even.

  4. Keep doing this till you’ve filled the tray and place the mold in your freezer so that it sets, while you move on to the caramel.

Caramel

Ingredients:

  1. Ten dates

  2. Quarter cup agave (rakas patta)

  3. One third cup of coconut oil

  4. One tablespoon of mesquite (angaraji babul) powder

  5. One tablespoon of water

  6. One teaspoon of vanilla extract

  7. One teaspoon of vegan butterscotch extract (optional)

  8. Pinch of salt

Preparation:

  1. Allow the dates to soak for about half an hour and remove the pits.

  2. Add all of the ingredients in a mixer or high-speed blender preferably, and mix until smooth. To get a smoother consistency you can also add some water.

  3. You can remove the muffin tray with the frozen crusts, transfer the caramel into a piping bag that has a medium tip and use it to pipe caramel into the middle of each crust. If you don’t have a piping bag, you can simply do it with a spoon.

  4. Put the tray back in the freezer while you move on to the cheesecake filling.
