Chocolate "Cheese" Cake

I made this recipe for a women's retreat our church had and I was really surprised by how well it turned out) and how well it was received! I made this recipe up all by myself :)

Chocolate "Cheese" Cake

1 cup nuts or seeds of choice (I use Brazil nuts)
1 cup dates
dash or two of sea salt

5 avocados
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tbsp lecithin
1/2 cup agave or honey
2/3 cup cacao powder
1/8 tsp sea salt

Process nuts/seeds and dates in food processor until chopped and chunky - careful not to over-process. Press in the bottom of a spring form pan (or pie pan) and place in freezer while you prepare the filling.
Place all filling ingredients in food processor and process until smooth. Taste for sweetness and add more agave/honey if desired. Remember, it will taste different after it sets! Place in fridge to set for at least 2 hours before serving.

For a really wonderful fall treat I added some pommegranites to the cake. I just love them, they look like little jewels and as Adi would describe them they are, "crunchy and delicious sweet!"
