Course Dessert, Snack



  • 1 cup almonds, macadamias, walnuts or a mix
  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked at least 30 minutes and drained
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (more for a more ginger-ey flavour)


  • 1 1/2 cups cashews, soaked 3+ hours and drained
  • 1/2 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 lemon juice and zest, (more for a more lemon-ey flavour)


  • Whipped coconut cream - Store bought or homemade. Recipe below in notes



  • Place the nuts in a food processor and process until broken down and crumbly. Add dates, coconut and ginger and continue to process until well combined into a sticky dough. Be careful not to over process as leaving it a little chunky will add texture.
    Grease a mini muffin tin with coconut oil or use silicone muffin moulds and press 1/2 tablespoon of this mixture into each muffin cup. How many you get will depend on the size of your muffin cups.


  • Puree soaked cashews and coconut in a food processor for about 1 minute. Add honey, coconut oil, lemon and vanilla and continue to process until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
    Scoop 1 tablespoon of filling on top of base in each muffin cup. Chill in the fridge 1-2 hours until firm- more or less time depending on the desired consistency.
    When ready to serve, top with coconut cream and decorate with chopped nuts, toasted coconut or fresh fruit.
