In a big frying pan over medium heat, toast the rolled oats till really aromatic, about 5 minutes. Set the oats aside to cool.
In the bowl of a food mill, integrate the cooled toasted oats, Medjool dates, cacao powder, and sea salt. Pulse the mix till carefully sliced. Then, with the motor running, drizzle in 1/4 cup of the non-dairy milk into the food mill through the feed tube. The mix needs to begin sticking and balling up. If it isn’t doing this, keep including more non-dairy milk by the tablespoon till it forms a somewhat sticky “dough.”
Press the toasted oat crust into the ready springform pan uniformly. I like to utilize the bottom and sides of a dry measuring cup to push the crust up the sides of the pan. When properly pushed in, set the crust aside.
