Vegan Cheesecake!
 

A great vegan cheesecake recipe is not easy to come by and this one is most certainly DELICIOUS. In this recipe we’ve incorporated some natural fruit syrups in the cake filling both as substitute to maple syrup or agave and also because natural fruit syrups deliver some extra flavor. and aroma. A mixed berry natural fruit syrup was also used as drizzle in addition to some fresh fruit and chopped granola health bars. Vegan cream cheese, Arrowroot, Oats and Nuts do the rest of the magic. Happy baking!

šŸ¶Preparation: 

  1. In A bowl, cover raw cashews with boiling hot water. Let rest for 1 hour (uncovered). Then drain thoroughly.

  3. In a blender grind the oats, almonds, sea salt, and coconut sugar to a fine meal.
  4. Remove lid and add melted coconut oil, starting with 4 Tbsp (60 g) and adding more if it's too dry. Pulse/mix on low until a loose dough is formed.
  5. Transfer mixture to parchment-lined loaf pan and spread evenly.
  6. Place parchment paper on top and use a flat-bottomed object to press down firmly until it’s evenly distributed.
