Vegan Brookie No-Bake Cheesecake! A mouthwatering, smooth richness that melts in your mouth and leaves you longing for another slice. The tangy sweetness of chocolate chip cheesecake blends with the chocolaty goodness of a brownie crust. Simply divine!
The Brookie Factor
A little more than a year ago, I created my recipe for Brookies. Happy birthday, Brookies! These bars of lovin’ goodness are gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar-free chocolate chip cookies which serve as a base complemented by a rich chocolate brownie top. I am humbled by how much love this recipe has been given and grateful for all of the great comments, feedback, and 100K repins on Pinterest.
Vegan Gluten-free Brookie Cheesecake
Over the months, I received so many requests for nut substitution options that in January I released a recipe for Allergy Friendly Brookies (Gluten-free, Vegan/Plant-based, Nut-free, Soy-free and Refined Sugar-free).
As I contemplated all of the possible flavor combinations I could use in my first cheesecake recipe, one stood out among the rest. So here it is, the third part of the Brookie trilogy: Vegan Brookie Cheesecake!
It’s What’s NOT In It
How can it taste this incredible and still be healthier than traditional cheesecake?! Sometimes half the battle of making traditional dishes healthier is eliminating unhealthy ingredients.
So I’m going to tell you what’s not in this cheesecake. It is gluten-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free and does not contain any animal products or sketchy oils.
Healthier No-bake Cheesecake
Most of the ingredients in my Vegan Brookie Cheesecake benefit from the “no-bake” status, retaining more of their nutrients and a higher degree of bioavailability — enter plant-based protein and healthy fats.
So just sit back and enjoy with your favorite cup of tea or a fresh pot of coffee!!
