Vegan Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake Bars without Cashews
Vegan Cheesecake IS possible! This creamy, dreamy and perfectly sweetened cheesecake will make you never want regular cheesecake ever again. Best part? It is gluten-free and diabetes friendly!
The crust’s main ingredient is oat flour made with Bakery on Main rolled oats. Oat flour provides extra fiber to help stabilize blood glucose. Throw in the walnuts and flax for the healthy fats (omega-3’s) and you’ve got yourself a wholesome and delicious crust.
The cheesecake portion is the right amount of creamy and delicious. This is definitely the next dessert you want to make for your friends and family!
Tips & Substitutes:
What kind of vegan cream cheese to get? There are lots of types out there so I’ll give you the low down:
Trader Joe’s: Great product for a low price! This is not the best vegan cream cheese but I have used it and works great once its mixed with all the other ingredients.
Kite Hill: Amazing and not super overpriced. Highly recommend this one!
Miyokos: Great cream cheese but can be pretty pricey.
Rolled oats are best to make oat flour but you may also use quick oats.
Walnuts can be substituted for pecans. I haven’t tried any other nuts/seeds.
Don’t have maple syrup? You can use regular cane sugar as well! Same amount will work just fine. I have also tried this recipe with monk fruit sweetener and it is good but has a slight aftertaste
