Chocolate & Banana Raw Cake

As I've said before, I often crave for sweet. Since recently I've started paying more attention to the effects sugars have on the human's body, thus started avoiding using sugar, fructose, etc.
Today I'm going to present you an easy and quick recipe, which turned out to be such a great success that even my cat was tempted to try it!
It's made from raw ingredients and no heating is involved into the making process.

Ingredients for the crust:
Mixed raw cashews, walnuts, and almonds: 1 and 1/2 cup;
Coconut oil: 1/3 cup, melted;
Honey: 1/3 cup;

Ingredients for the filling:
Raw cashew: 50 gr;
Dates: 7-8 medium size, pitted;
Bananas: 3 big;
Raw cocoa beans: 3 tablespoons;
Husk: 2 tablespoons;

Preparation of the crust:
Step 1: Grind the nuts (not too fine).
Step 2: Melt the coconut oil.
Step 3: Mix the two with the honey.
Step 4: Put the mixture on the bottom of the cake form.
Step 5: Refrigerate for at least 30 min before adding the cake mixture.

Preparation of the filling:
Step 1: Grind the cashews and cocoa beans together.
Step 2: Cut the dates in small pieces.
Step 3: Smash the bananas.
Step 4: Mix all together along with the husk.
Step 5: Put over the base;
Step 6: Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

and... watch out for the cat!
