IDC ABOUT CHEESECAKE EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE.

I've never gone crazy for cheesecake and I prefer salty foods to sweet, but this accidental recipe was so good I had to write it up. 

Filled with berries, almonds and oats, this is the best tasting non-dairy cheesecake! 

Ingredients

Cheese

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup erythritol

Crust & "Cake"

  • 2 cups thick rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 cups mixed berries
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • Nonstick baking dish (we used 8x8in)

 

     Sweet & fruity.

    Instructions

    Cheese

    1. Boil almonds in 2 cups of water for 2-4 minutes (this makes peeling the skins off easier)
    2. Add peeled almonds, almond milk, lemon juice, nutritional yeast, salt and erythritol to blender.
    3. Blender on low for ~1 minute or until it reaches smooth, thick consistency. Set aside. 

    Crust

    1. Grind oats (we use a coffee grinder) to a fine consistency.
    2. Mix in egg.
    3. Add to nonstick (or oiled) baking dish with 3/4 cup water and r. Mix until it forms a thick pudding. Spread "batter" and line dish. Bake at 375F for 10-15 minutes to form the crust.

    "Cake"

    1. When crust is soft and lightly browned, fill dish with "cheese".
    2. Mix in berries
    3. Bake for 30-45 minutes.
