Process sunflower seeds and cashews in a food processor until it reaches a fine crumb. Add coconut oil, dates, salt and linseed. Process until mixture comes together. Press into a lined springform tin or individual moulds to an even thickness. Chill crust in refrigerator.
Place cashews and coconut cream in a blender and process until smooth. Add lime zest, juice, vanilla seeds, honey, coconut oil and avocado. Process again until smooth. If mixture is too thick you may need to add more coconut cream. It should be a smooth, pourable consistency.
