Chocolate Mousse Cake

This cake has no refined flour or sugar, only healthy ingredients. A delicious sweet treat.

1 cup walnuts
1 cup cashew nuts
¼ cup raw cacao powder or organic cocoa powder.

Pulse the figs in a food processor until minced.
Add nuts and mix to a paste.

Press into a spring form pan.

1 cup pitted dates, soaked
1 cup coconut oil
