Nutritional values

The almonds and cashews in this recipe are not only an excellent source of protein but also contain healthy unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E. This fat-soluble vitamin acts as an antioxidant and protects our cells from harmful free radicals. Additionally, the dates not only provide a naturally sweet taste, but they also contain many important dietary fibers and minerals.

If you prefer your cheesecake to be less sweet, you can reduce the amount of agave syrup the recipe requires or leave out the sweetener altogether. Alternatively, you can use maple syrup, which adds a slightly caramel-like taste to the cheesecake.

Is there anything I could substitute for the dates?

Hi, you could try substituting banana, to achieve the sweetness and stickiness, but we haven't tested it this way yet. Let us know if you try it!
