I’m not a big sugaryΒ one so my sweet makes are rare little beasts.

I do love cheesecake though.

Mainly, because I like the base.

I like the buttery base.

I like the buttery biscuit base.

You can still make a killer cheesecake without the dairy or the fuss. The base is simple AF. The topping is a crazy easy tweaked Minimalist Baker recipe.

 

You will need:

For that crunchy nutty base:

  • 300gΒ Hobnobs
  • 100g Melted Vegan Butter

For the topping:

  • 170g Cashews (soaked for at least 1hr in boiling water)
  • 250g Dairy FreeΒ Cream Cheese (Tesco & Sainsbury’s do a crackin’Β one, try Violife in ASDA)
  • 250ml Coconut Cream
  • 150ml Maple Syrup
  • 1 tbsp Arrowroot Powder
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Zest of 1 Lemon
  • 1tsp Vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

 

Preheat your oven to 160C / 320F

  1. Lets start with the fun.Β Bash the F out or your hobnobs until they have reached ‘crumb’ status.
  2. Mix with the melted butter.
  3. Line a loose bottomed baking tin with bakingΒ paper.
  4. TipΒ the base mix to the tin and press down until firmly packed.
  5. Let him chill out in the fridge (maybe give him a beer)…

….and then BANG! In comes the wobble, wobble… wobble, wobble, wobble, wobble…

  1. Add all of your topping ingredients to a blender. Blend until creamy.
  2. Whip out your chilled base. Pour on the topping mix.
  3. Bang in the oven for around an 50 minutesΒ (you’re looking for the edges to be firm and the middle slightly wobbly).
  4. When he looks done, bring him out and let him cool.
  5. Remove from him from his tin prison. Throw some fruit on there so it looks like you have a balanced diet.
  6. Take a photo and upload to instagram.
  7. Remove the fruit and give it to your rabbit (in moderation and if safe, of course!).

OOMPF!
