Raw Tiramisu Cupcake Cheesecakes (Vegan & Gluten Free)

Having just spent nearly five weeks in India without any coffee (which wasn’t so bad but I strangely developed a taste for black tea), and the great thing is that now that I’m home I don’t seem to feel the need for the daily espresso or two that I used to have. Happy days.
However I have been thinking a lot about coffee desserts. I’m not sure what’s going on but it’s got me thinking about creating a raw tiramisu…

Now my husband Andy loves a tiramisu but I would usually chose something citrusy. However I do think that the combination of rich dark chocolate, coffee and vanilla is wonderful, so it had to be tiramisu.

So here it is – my latest dessert creation! Cute little raw vegan cupcake tiramisu cheesecakes and I’m really happy with the result. A deliciously crunchy, rich base with a gooey, chocolatey coffee mousse centre and creamy vanilla topping.

Once again I’ve added my little secret ingredient chestnuts to the mousse for extra richness and texture, you’ve got to try it. I also tried using silicone cup cake cases for the first time and they worked like a dream!

  Made 5 cupcakes servings
  20 minutes preparation time
  None cook time

Ingredients

  • Base ingredients;
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 tbsp raw cacao – I used Aduna
  • 4 medjool dates
  • 3 tbsp cold coffee
  • Pinch Salt
  • Chocolate layer; 
  • 2 tbsp raw cacao – I used Aduna
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1/2 cup chestnuts
  • 1/2 cup soaked cashews
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 4 tbsp cold coffee
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder, paste or essence
  • 2 medjool dates
  • Pinch sea salt
  • Vanilla layer; 
  • 1/2 cup cashews soaked overnight
  • 1 tsp vanilla powder or essence
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Toppings:
  • Coconut cream

Directions

  1. To make the base blitz the almonds in your food processor until you get a crumb like consistency. Add in the dates, cacao, coffee and salt and blend again until everything combines. The mix should stick together between your fingers.
  2. Add the mixture to the bottom of 5 silicone cupcake cases.  Press down firmly with you hands (don’t press the mix up the sides).
  3. Pop in the fridge while you make the filing.
  4. Wash out your food processor or high speed blender then add the chocolate layer ingredients then blitz until the cashews are super creamy.. This may take a few minutes and you will need to scrape the sides a few times.
  5. Remove the bases from the freezer then top with half the chocolate mix. Return to the fridge to firm up.
  6. Wash out your food processor or high speed blender then add the vanilla layer ingredients, blitz until super creamy.. This may take a few minutes and you will need to scrape the sides a few times.
  7. Remove the bases from the freezer then top with the vanilla layer. 
  8. Return to the fridge for a few hours then top with coconut cream.
