3 cups pecans
1 cup raisins, roughly chopped
4 tbsp coconut butter, liquefied
2 tsp vanilla ex or 1/2 a vanilla pod
2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp Himalayan salt
2 cups (1 16oz jar) cashew butter
2 cups water
2 cups cacao powder
1 1/2 cups grated cacao butter
2 tbsp vanilla extract or 2 vanilla pods
1 cup agave nectar
Liquify the cacao butter and coco butter in separate containers in a warm dehydrator.
Take your cashew butter out of the fridge
Process all the dry ingredients, then add coco butter and vanilla extract. Dont over-process nuts! Press ingredients into a 9" springform pan.
Mix the water and avocados in a VM. Then cashew butter and mix well, and last, add
the cacao butter after everything has been blended.
Add remaining ingredients - melted cacao butter, vanilla extract and agave and mix again.
When thoroughly mixed, pour the heavenly chocolate mixture on to the base in the springform and then use a spatula to even out the top.
Lick the bowl.
Place torte in the fridge over night to set. It tends to get better every night it's in the fridge, if it lasts that long without you eating it all! Seriously though, this will make a very big torte so there'll be plenty to go round You can put it in the freezer for a couple of hours to set if you're short of time as well.
Before removing the springform, run a knife around the edge of the torte to separate it from the pan.
