Ingredients

  • Base:
  • 2/3 cup Honest to Goodness coconut flour
  • ¼ tsp Chefs Choice Himalayan pink rock salt
  • 3 tbsp Spiral Foods rice malt syrup
  • 1/3 cup Loving Earth cold pressed coconut oil in solid form (you may need to refrigerate in advance if it is runny)
  • Filling:
  • 1 ¼ cup Honest to Goodness organic cashews soaked for at least 4 hours & drained
  • 2 cups baked mashed & cooled organic pumpkin
  • ½ cup Spiral Foods rice malt syrup
  • ½ tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup Spiral Foods organic coconut cream
  • 1 tsp Loving Earth vanilla bean powder
  • 2 tsps Planet Organic organic cinnamon powder
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ½ tsp ginger powder
  • ½ cup Loving Earth cold pressed melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp Green Life lecithin granules

Method

  • Base:
  • Preheat the oven to 180 ͦC.
  • Grease a 22cm springform pan with coconut oil and line with baking paper.
  • Combine the coconut flour, salt, rice malt syrup and coconut oil together in a bowl. Stir with a spoon for as long as you can.
  • You will need to use your hands for the last final mix through and mix until you can make a large ball of dough. Make sure all ingredients are mixed well through.
  • Press the mixture into the baking pan.
  • Bake for about 10 mins. Keep an eye on the base while baking. It can quickly turn dark. You want to pull it out as it begins to turn a nice golden brown colour.
  • Once baked, allow to cool completely (in baking tin) before you add the pumpkin layer.
  • Filling:
  • Blend the drained cashews, rice malt syrup, lemon juice and coconut cream until smooth. If you don’t want a completely smooth texture, don’t blend as well.
  • Slowly add the pumpkin, spices and lecithin granules. Mix through well.
  • Add the coconut oil till mixed through.
  • Pour the mix over the cooled base and allow to sit in the freezer overnight.
  • Pull out at least a few hours before serving up. You can leave it in the fridge once it has set.
  • When serving sprinkle with a little extra cinnamon and nutmeg.
