Basic Raw Cheesecake Crust

Ready in


  • CRUST: 2 cups soaked and dehydrated walnuts or pecans
  • 2 cups dried (desiccated) coconut, ground into a powder
  • 6 TBS powdered sweetener: coconut sugar or xylitol
  • 1/8 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 2 Tbs. softened or melted coconut oil (or melted cacao butter)
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • Tiny pinch of cayenne powder
  • 1/4 cup mesquite powder


  1. Process ingredients until the crust starts to rise on the sides of the processor bowl. Stop the machine and mix with a spatula or spoon.
  2. Assemble the cheesecake pan with the bottom upside-down (with lip facing down). This makes it much easier to serve.
  3. Distribute crust evenly on the bottom of pan and firmly press down by hand and press up the sides just slightly.
  4. Set in a freezer or refrigerator until ready to be filled.
