No Bake Mini Blueberry Cakes (oil-free)

Vegan Gluten-free Raw Mini Blueberry Cakes

Yes, yes, it it is the season of blueberries here in New Zealand! I just love them! And so I’ve been trying a few more different ideas. This is one of them: a raw, vegan and gluten-free version that is also oil-free. But don’t be afraid, they are not flavour-free! 😉

If you love blueberries as much as I do, check out this recipe for another no-bake blueberry cake.

Note: Due to the high water content of the berries, the cakes should be stored in the freezer and only taken out about 1 hour before serving up. Otherwise they might turn a little watery. Best results with a high-speed blender.

For 6 mini cakes you’ll need:

For the crust:
1 cup (150g) almonds (soaked in filtered water for at least 8 hours and then drained)
1/2 cup (70g) dates, pitted and diced

For the filling:
1 cup (140g) cashews (soaked in filtered water for at least 4 hours and then drained)
2 cups (300g) blueberries
1/2 cup (70g) dates, pitted and diced
1/8 cup water (only if too try)

For decoration: a few extra blueberries, some dessicated coconut and marigold pedals is what I’ve used, but there is not limit for your creativity here 😉

Preparation:

For the crust, pulse the almonds to fine crumbles and pour into a medium sized bowl.

Pulse the dates to fine crumbles and add to the bowl.

Mix dates and almonds well.

Line a muffin tray with a strip of paper for each cake. I find they are easier to remove this way.

Scoop the dough for the crust into the molds and spread evenly with your (clean) hands. It might be a little finicky, but it’ll be worth it! 😉

Place the muffin tray in the fridge while preparing the filling.

For the filling, blend the blueberries with the dates to a fine cream. If your blender isn’t very strong, I recommend to blend the blueberries first, then let the dates soak in the blueberry juice and then blend it a little later.

Then add cashews and blend to a fine cream.

Take the muffin tray out of the fridge and scoop the filling into the prepared molds.
