To make the base process hazelnuts, shredded coconut, cacao and almonds in a food processor and blend until crumbly. Add in rice malt syrup and water until well combined and sticky.
Press the dough into a muffin tin, filling 1/3 of the way up. Set aside in the fridge.
Make the cheesecake filling by adding all filling ingredients into the food processor, except the cacao and Nourishing Protein Chocolate. Blend on high, at least 5-10 minutes, until smooth and creamy.
Empty 1/3 of the mix into a bowl and add cacao and Nourishing Protein Chocolateto the remaining filling in the blender. Process until combined.
Fill up muffin tin with alternate spoonsful of vanilla and chocolate cheesecake filling, saving any excess chocolate frosting for piping later. Set aside in the freezer, including the extra frosting in a piping bag. Freeze until firm, at least 5-6 hours.
Pipe remaining frosting on top of each cake and finish with fresh and dried raspberries. If the frosting is too firm, allow to thaw a little by running piping bag under hot water. Keeps well for up to a month in the freezer and best enjoyed when thawed for 20 minutes before eating.
