Snickerdoodle Vegan Cheesecake: A no-bake cheesecake combining the buttery richness of a pancake breakfast with a cinnamon sugar cookie. These personal size cheesecakes will make a great addition to your breakfast buffet or dessert table!
Flexibility and Flavor
As many of us prepare dishes for the holidays, I imagine flexibility and flavor top the list of requirements for most. Schedules become even more compressed with attending parties, hosting events and still doing life! This recipe is my gift to you . . ok, and to myself. Since they are stored in the freezer, these cheesecakes are a perfect dish to make in advance. Not to mention, they require no baking! Pull them out whenever you are ready for them. Make the crust, press it into the muffin cups, and pop it into the freezer. Now, you have the flexibility to continue on with the rest of the recipe immediately OR you can go shopping, do a load of laundry, or sit down with a cup of hot tea and enjoy the season. When you are ready to add these beauties to your breakfast or dessert table I assure you they won’t disappoint.
Taste Tested and Cheesecake Lover Approved
The flavor and texture will impress even your most skeptical cheese-lovin’ guest. I recently served this dish to someone who had just been to the Cheesecake Factory. What do people who aren’t on a plant-based diet do when they go to the Cheesecake Factory? They eat cheesecake, of course! Not just any cheesecake, but the creamiest, most opulent cheesecake ever! Not one to shy away from a challenge, I presented my Snickerdoodle Vegan Cheesecake or “Snickerdoodle Cheesecake”. Oops, did I forget to mention that it’s plant-based?! After a few bites I heard, “This is delicious, Jana. Tastes just like one from the Cheesecake Factory.” When I finally fessed up and disclosed that it was completely vegan they could not believe it.
Does the Body Good
Also at the top of my list of requirements for holiday dishes is feeling. I want to come out on the other side of the holidays feeling as good as I did when they started. I want dishes that taste like an indulgence in the festivities but are actually still feeding my body real food. Food that nourishes the body and doesn’t rob its health. Not only vegan/plant-based, the Snickerdoodle Vegan Chessecake is gluten-free and refined sugar free. The cashews and macadamia nuts provide a healthy dose of plant-based protein and healthy fats. Cinnamon among its many other health benefits helps lower blood sugar levels and fights insulin resistance.
Serving Snickerdoodle Vegan Cheesecake
Snickerdoodle Vegan Cheesecakes can be served directly from the freezer. If a softer cheesecake is desired, let them stand at room temperature for a couple of minutes. I love this cheesecake exactly as it is, but I know (especially around the holidays) people love their toppings. If you desire a topping I would recommend pairing it with Easy Coconut Whipped Cream.
