  • pinch of salt
  • 3 pitted dates

  1. Instructions
  2. Soak walnuts for 4 hours.
  3. Combine soaked nuts, salt and oat bran in food processor and process until fine crumbs and the ingredients start to stick together. Add dates and process again until everything is well combined and the batter sticks together when pressed between fingers.
  4. Line a 6-inch springform cake tin with parchment paper. Press the crust into tin with your hands (wet your hands if it sticks) and bake in 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  5. While the crust is baking, cut the tofu into small cubes and combine all filling ingredients (except poppy seeds and chocolate) in a blender. Process until a silky batter forms. Taste and add more of sweetener, if you feel like it is not sweet enough for you.
  6. Mix in poppy seeds and chocolate.
  7. Pour the filling into crust and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45-50 minutes until the cake starts to turn golden.
  8. Let cool completely. Ideally it should be refrigerated for a couple of hours.
