Raw Vegan Mini Snickers “Cheesecake” Two Ways || Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free, Dairy-Free

 

When it comes to quenching my husbands insatiable sweet tooth, I find the challenge intriguing. It never fails – around 8:00 pm he wanders into the kitchen and opens the pantry, giving it the “maybe if I glare at you long enough you’ll produce something sweet and delicious” stare.  I like to have some type of vegan treat made up for those moments, so he has a healthier option to go to than the typical desserts we both grew up eating.

Needless to say, when he found out there were snickers cheesecakes in the freezer he didn’t wait until 8:00 that night to eat them! I believe the term is “wolfed them down”. These were so fun to create, and the different variations you can make with this simple recipe are endless. So, let’s get started..

Ingredients:

Crust:
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
4 large pitted/soaked medjool dates
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp gluten free oat flour
1 tbsp mini cacao nibs

Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake mix:
1 ripe banana
1 tbsp agave
1/4 cup raw peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp melted coconut oil
1 tsp pure vanilla
palm full of raw peanuts

Chocolate PB Snickers Cheesecake mix:
Same ingredients as above, add 1-2 tbsp raw cacao.

Instructions:

For the crust – In food processor, process first 4 ingredients then stir in cacao nibs.

Sprinkle oat flour in the bottom of each mini cheesecake dish or one small/medium size dish (this helps it to not stick to the bottom).
Press the crust into each tin and set aside.

Next, blend all PB Cheesecake ingredients (minus the raw peanuts) – add raw peanuts nuts over the crust and pour PB cheesecake mixture in two ramekins.

Use the left over mixture and add 1-2 tbsp raw cacao to it – blend and add to last ramekin.

Put each cake into the freezer for 3-4 hours.

Once frozen, pop out of the ramekins and let set for 1-3 minutes to soften before eating.

      1. Haha its tea time over here so I’d feel guilty eating that not long after my dinner. Will be following your blogs closely because my son loves to try his hand and cooking and baking 🙂

  1. Looks so good! Kudos for your hubby for trying them. I always have to convince mine to try new healthy desserts…most of the time he approves but he’s a traditionalist and always thinks the “real” thing is better 😦 I’m going to try these out though and if won’t eat them that just means more for me!!

    I made some vegan snickers bar around Christmas last year…I think you’d like them! These were husband approved! lol

    1. Oh AWESOME I am so making those this week!! My husband is a snickers freak so I thank you from him in advance! Haha – and he is pretty good about trying new things as long as it’s not too “weird”. He inhaled these little “cheesecakes” :). I hope your husband likes them too, but if not it’s like you said – more for you!!

      Have a great day girl! 🙂

      1. YAY! I hope you guys like them too!!
        Ya I definitely can’t push kale chips on him hahaha. But he’s usually willing to try most things, sometimes I flat out lie to him and he never knows the difference lol.
        I can’t wait to try these out….Happy Wednesday to you too 🙂

      2. HA! I am so glad to hear you do that too – makes me feel less guilty!! I usually tell him the truth AFTER he’s finished whatever it is, but in order for him to try it I definitely have to “embellish” the ingredient list sometimes. The things us wives do to keep our husbands healthy! 😉

    1. They are difficult to break, absolutely! I was raised on the typical “American diet” – it wasn’t until I was a young adult and young mother myself that I really researched and changed my lifestyle. It just takes time! 😊

      Hope you’re having a great day!

  3. Absolutely love these! I’ve already made these a few times…even for my friends (they are making them too by the way!). They love it! I’ve noticed the more riper the banana, the better the flavour. Thanks for sharing your recipes.
