What you need:
Deep spring fold pan
Parchment paper

BASE:
1 1/4 cups of almond flour
4 table spoons of Ghee (3 is it’s solid)
Two tbsp maple syrup
Tsp vanilla extract

CHEESECAKE:
2 cups of boiled cashews (20-25 minutes to boil)
2 bananas
2 tbsp ghee
3 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp honey

TOFFEE:
Can of coconut milk
2 tbsp ghee
2 tbsp honey
Tsp vanilla extract

CREAM & TOPPING:
Coconut cream (leave in fridge overnight to solidify it, then remove the milk)
4 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Banana
Cocoa powder

Method:
Mix all the base ingredients together. Bake at 350ºF / 175ºC for 15 minutes. While that’s cooking boil the cashews (you can do this earlier if you want to prepare). When they’re boiling, chop your banana and add it to all of your cheesecake ingredients. Your base should be about ready, take it out and let it cool. Add cashews to the cheesecake when they’re ready, blend it all with a blender or hand blender and add to the base. Freeze it for now.
On to the toffee! Add all the ingredients to a pan and simmer for about half an hour, stir it now and again. After 30 minutes stir constantly for 10 to 15 more, it should go a toffee colour and a consistency. When there is very little steam it should be ready! Take the base and cheesecake out of the freezer and add the toffee. Put it back in the freezer for at least an hour, if not more. After an hour, or just before you want to eat it, start making the cream. Add all then ingredients into a bowl (remember only the cream, not the milk, you could use this for other recipes!). Whip it up, chop your banana and add to the cheesecake (i’d take it out of the spring fold first. Sprinkle with your cocoa and you’re done!
