Free Healthy Recipe - Fresh fig, orange and walnut cheesecake

This one is for all of you who love sweet desserts but who don't want to feel the weight of it around your middle the next day. With fresh figs on the top it's glorously sweet and perfectly balanced with all the other flavours. I hope you enjoy it.

1½ cups rolled oats
½ cup walnut, chopped
1 tbs hot water
2 oranges with skin, pips removed
750 grams ricotta, reduced fat
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
½ lemon juiced
5 figs sliced

Preheat the oven to 165C

Lightly grease the base and sides of a 24cm spring base cake tin and line with baking paper.
In a food processor, add the oats, walnuts, macadamia butter and sugar and process until broken down and well combined.
Add the water and process until the mixture starts to form together.
Transfer to the cake tin and press the mixture firmly into the base and sides of the cake tin.
Wipe down the food processor with kitchen paper to remove any crumbs then add the oranges and process until smooth.
Add ricotta, vanilla, sugar, eggs and lemon juice and continue to process until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pour the mixture into the cake tin and smooth the surface with a knife.
Arrange sliced figs over the top of the cake, then place in the oven to bake for 60 minutes or until set.
Leave to cool.
Remove cake from tin and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving
