Preparation

To make the crust:
  1. Pulse oats or walnuts into powder in a food processor, then add the dates and keep processing until it all starts to stick together.
  2. Press into the bottom of a springform cake pan, or adjustable pan (I used an adjustable pan set to about 7 inches). Put in fridge.
To make the cake:
  1. Blend everything until smooth, thick and creamy! It should be the consistency of yogurt, kinda. If it's watery; add more dates, coconut oil or nuts. If it's too thick; add more water or maple syrup.
  2. Pour onto your crust and let it set overnight or for at least 12 hours (this lets it set and develop flavour).
  3. Slice and enjoy,

Notes

I decorated mine with hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds.
