These no-bake Berry ‘Cheesecake’ Granola Bars will have your taste buds dancing!
They are grain, gluten and dairy free and can be made vegan* as well.
With a light, fruity filling and crunchy granola base, they make the perfect Summer dessert whether you are having friends over or just want to treat yourself.
A great alternative to regular cheesecake if you’re looking for something delicious but also incredibly nutritious!
* We used our Honey & Pecan granola to make the base but just switch to our vegan Chia & Hemp granola and swap out the honey in the filling for maple syrup or coconut nectar.
Makes 8 bars
For the base:
200g Grain-Free Granola (Honey & Pecan)
40g coconut oil
For the filling:
225g cashews (soaked for 3 hours)
40g coconut oil
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp honey
Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
In a food processor, blend the granola and coconut oil until the granola is ground fine and the mixture is starting to stick. Spoon the mixture into the loaf tin and press down to make the base. Place in the fridge whilst making the filling.
To make the ‘cheesecake’ filling, blend the cashews, coconut oil, berries, lemon juice and honey in a food processor. Blend until fully mixed together and until it is a smooth, creamy texture.
Spoon the filling onto the granola base, then place in the freezer for around two hours to set.
Remove from the freezer, lift the baking paper out of the tin and cut the cheesecake into bars with a sharp knife. Tuck in and enjoy now or store in a Tupperware in the fridge!
