Low-histamine raw cake

A fresh and fruity low-histamine raw cake that everyone can make easily. The perfect summer dessert for hot days. 

Cooking time: 20 minutes 

Difficulty: Easy 

For the base: 
90 g oats (gluten-free as required) 
230 g almonds 
300 g de-stoned dates, 2 tablespoons almond butter 
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil 

For the filling: 
200 g frozen blueberries 200 g frozen blackberries 2 tablespoons maple syrup 
45 g shelled sunflower seeds 45 g macadamia nuts 
3 tablespoons chia seeds 
1 tablespoon chopped (vegan) white chocolate or grated coconut flakes 


Step 1:
For the base, put the almonds and oats in a food processor, mix and finely shred until a fine crumbly consistency is attained. Add the rest of the ingredients (dates, coconut oil,  almond butter) and continue to mix and  grind until the mixture is well blended and sticky. Line a cake tin with a diameter of 25 cm with greaseproof paper, spread the dough evenly in it and press firmly into shape until 
everything is even  and well compacted.  Now put it in the freezer!

Step 2:
In meantime, prepare the berry layer. To do this, first wash the food processor thoroughly and put the frozen blueberries and blackberries in it. Mix thoroughly and add the remaining ingredients (chia seeds, macadamia nuts, sunflower seeds,  maple syrup, a little white chocolate). Continue to mix until a nice and creamy mixture is attained. This process may take a few minutes, as you will have to scrape the mixture from the sides of the food processor every now and again.

Step 3:
Take the cake base out of the freezer and spread the berry layer evenly on top. To finish, sprinkle a little chopped (vegan) white chocolate or some coconut flakes on top and leave the cake to  set in the freezer for at least 2 hours.  Before you serve the cake, let it thaw for around 10 minutes so that it is easier to cut.

Note: Be careful with nuts and almonds: they are histamine liberators. If you are unable to tolerate them, simply leave them out or replace them with a tasty alternative. If you are interested in the histamine content of foodstuffs, click here.
