First let’s talk about that superfood chocolate bar – I use it in the crust, and it’s pretty much my new obsession

 

Let’s everyone take a minute and just appreciate all the killer ingredients listed up there ⬆

Cacao nibs + coconut sugar + raw mulberries + raw chia seeds + potent raw mushroom blend + raw maca powder + raw sprouted red clover + raw cacao powder + and raw sweetened cacao nibs = SO MUCH YES!

You guys know how much I love my my medicinal mushrooms and superfoods, and if I could make a dream chocolate bar, this would be it. Except that Rawmio’s already done it, so I can go ahead and check that off my list of things to accomplish in this lifetime and move onto other important things like making no bake cheesecake bars WITH that epic superfood chocolate bar in the crust! 🤗

Here’s a little more information on the superfoods in this chocolate bar

 

  • Cacao nibs – full of anti-oxidants and minerals. PLUS: Contains a neurotransmitter called theobromine – a mild stimulant which releases something in our brains called anandamide – a compound whose root comes from the sanskrit word “ananda” meaning joy, bliss and delight. Making it one of the things in chocolate that has the unique ability to make us feel a sense of happiness and contentment!
  • Maca root – high in minerals, fatty acids, lipids and amino acids. Well known for it’s hormone balancing properties and prized for it’s effect on libido and fertility (hiii perfect Valentine’s day superfood!)
  • Chia seeds – High in vitamins and minerals, fiber, anti-oxidants, and rich in omega-3 fatty acids – 2 tablespoons of chia seeds contain the same amount of these essential fatty acids as 4 oz of salmon!
  • Medicinal mushroom powders – Chaga, Reishi, Lion’s mane, and Cordyceps are all well known medicinal mushrooms that have been shown to have a positive effect on energy levels, over all immunity and indicate impressive adaptogenic qualities!
  • BONUS! You could also mix in a little Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and other adaptogenic herbs like I did – Just make sure you’re adding an appropriate amount – some people are more sensitive than others to these superfood supplements! Start small and experiment from there.

how did I use the superfood chocolate bar?

 

I blitz it in the food processor along with:

  • raw cashews
  • almond flour
  • dates
  • coconut oil (or ghee)
  • raw cacao powder
  • sea salt
  • vanilla

For nutty chocolate cheesecake crust perfection!

Once everything is thoroughly combined, it just gets pressed into a lined 8×8 baking pan and moved to the freezer to set while you prep the filling.

now let’s talk about how to make the raspberry cheesecake filling

It’s seriously so simple to make you guys. Soaked cashews (for that creamy factor), coconut cream (for that extra creamy factor), fresh raspberries (YUM), coconut oil (to help the filling set), maple syrup (to sweeten), and lemon juice (for that cheesecake tartness), plus a few more extras are blended together in a high speed blender until super duper smooth and creamy. It gets poured over the pressed chocolate superfood crust and moved to the freezer to set and you’re DONE.

The filling definitely sets best in the freezer – it will not quite be firm enough if left to set in the refrigerator. If you set and store the bars in the freezer, and take them out about 20 minutes before you want to enjoy them you will get the best texture – a little creamy and soft, but still fairly firm. Plus the extra raspberries on top will look all lovely and frosty!

Once your filling is set, you get to the really fun part – cutting and decorating the bars! You really can take this step in so many fun and pretty directions. Here’s some ideas.

options for decorating the raspberry chocolate cheesecake bars

 

  • Drizzling with melted chocolate – some chocolates drizzle better when you melt a little coconut oil in with the chocolate – if you melt some chocolate and it just seems to thick try adding about one teaspoon of coconut oil at a time and re-melting until you reach the perfect drizzle-able consistency.
  • Fresh raspberries – a must in my book
  • Crumbled freeze dried raspberries – they bring a really nice bright red color and pretty texture!
  • Cacao nibs – for that superfood chocolatey crunch
  • Cacao powder
  • Rawmio dark chocolate shaped hearts (<– personal FAVE!)
  • Extra nuts or shaved dark chocolate

Ingredients

for the chocolate crust 

  • 1/2 cup almond flour 
  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews 
  • 8 large dates, pitted (if they’re on the smaller side, you may need more than eight. They both sweeten and help hold the crust together. You can add more if it seems like / tastes like they’re needed) 
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or ghee
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder 
  • rawmio superfood chocolate bar, or 2 oz of your favorite dark chocolate bar + superfood add in’s such as: cacao nibs, maca powder, chia seeds, ashwaganda powder, medicinal mushroom powders – limit to about 2 tablespoons total so as not to overwhelm the flavor of the cheesecake

for the raspberry cheesecake filling 

  • 2 cups fresh raspberries 
  • 1/2 cup freeze dried raspberries (optional, but adds a brighter color and more raspberry flavor) 
  • 2 cups raw cashews, soaked overnight, or for an hour or two using boiling hot water 
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted 
  • 1 small (5.6 oz) can coconut cream (the brand Native Forest makes a can this size – it’s a green and black colored can. You can substitute the thick cream part of coconut milk if you can’t find coconut cream – see notes)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice 
  • pinch of sea salt 

extra toppings


Instructions

for the chocolate superfood crust

  1. Using a square 8×8 pan, cut out two pieces of parchment paper go in both directions that fit within the pan and hang over the edges. You will use the extra parchment hanging over the edge to pull out the cheesecake once it’s set. It might kind of annoyingly slip and move around in the pan, but just try and work with it the best you can. I tried one version where I used coconut oil to get the parchment to stick to the pan and stay in place, but that made it super difficult to lift out of the pan after it had set, which is the whole point of having the parchment in the pan in the first place! 
  2. Process all crust ingredients in a food processor until well combined and no large pieces of cashew or dates remain. Dump into lined 8×8 pan and press evenly into the bottom of the pan. Move to the freezer while you make the filling. 

for the raspberry cheesecake filling

  1. Drain soaked cashews and add to the blender along with all other filling ingredients.
  2. Blend on high for several minutes until very smooth and creamy.
  3. Taste and adjust sweetness (maple syrup) and tartness (lemon juice) if desired.
  4. Once you get the flavor just right pour over the crust and tap the pan on a counter top a few times to pop any air bubbles that may have formed in the filling during blending.
  5. Smooth filling using a spatula and return to the freezer to set for at least 2 hours, and up to overnight.

for decorating bars

  1. Remove bars from the freezer and let sit at room temperature for a little while so it’s easier to lift out of the pan. Alternatively, you can carefully run the outside edge of the pan under hot running water very briefly to loosen the cheesecake. Lift it out of the pan using the parchment paper flaps that are hanging over the sides. For an easier time cutting the cheesecake bars, you can run a large sharp knife under hot water and dry it before slicing into squares.
  2. Once cut into squares, drizzle with melted chocolate (thinned by adding a little coconut oil if necessary), and topping with chocolate hearts, fresh raspberries, cacao nibs, cacao powder, and any other desired toppings.
  3. Return to the freezer to store.
  4. Before serving, take out of the freezer and allow to sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes to soften slightly.

Notes

If you can’t find coconut cream (coconut milk’s thicker, less watery cousin), you can use a can of coconut milk by placing in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight, until the water has separated from the thick and creamy part of the coconut milk. You can tell that this has happened when you shake the can and don’t hear any noise. Sometimes a coconut milk can will already be separated right off the shelf at the grocery store. The shake test works in that case, too. After you know the cream has separated from the liquid, open the can and scoop off the thick cream, leaving behind most of the liquid. Measure about 3/4 of a cup of the thick cream and use it in place of the coconut cream in the cheesecake filling.
