  • a pinch salt
  • 135 g dried dates pitted and halved
  • 4 avocados peeled and stone removed
  • 45 g dried goji berries

  1. To make the hazelnut base, blend the hazelnuts into a fine texture, then add the coconut oil, 3 tbsp of maple syrup and salt. Bring together to form a spreadable consistency.

  2. Spread this mixture into the base of a round springform tin and leave to chill in the refrigerator overnight.

  3. In a food processor, blend the dates and 2 tbsp of maple syrup into a smooth paste and add the avocado flesh. Pulse until smooth.

  4. Pour the blender contents into a bowl and stir in the cocoa powder and goji berries. Combine together well.

  5. Remove the set hazelnut base from the refrigerator and spoon and spread over the date and avocado mix. Smooth and level out using a palette knife and leave to refrigerate overnight to fully set.

  6. Dress with the raspberries and edible flowers. Slice using a warmed knife when ready to serve.
