We love cheesecake but as we all know it’s not the healthiest of things to eat but we don’t like to sacrifice the taste either. That’s why we decided to try out a no-bake mini vegan cheesecake, chocolate flavor of course.



Oreo Crust:

  • 2 cups crushed oreos (just the cookie portion not the filling) – or other chocolate wafer cookie of your choice.
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted

Chocolate Cheesecake Filling:

  • ½ cup coconut cream
  • 6 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup roasted unsalted cashews, soaked for at least 1 hour
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ½ cup vegan semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1 ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of sea salt



  1. First, boil 2 cups of water. Place cashews in a mason jar and pour boiling water over nuts until they are completely covered. Let soak for 1 hour.

Make the Crust

  1. Grease a mini cheesecake pan, then set aside.
  2. Mix melted coconut oil and cookie crumbs together until well combined.
  3. Drop 1 tablespoon scoops of the crust into each well of the mini cheesecake pan and press the crumbs evenly around the bottom of the well.
  4. Repeat with each well until all the cookie mixture has been used.
  5. Put the mini cheesecake pan in the freezer for the crusts to harden.

Make the Filling

  1. Drain the cashews.
  2. Put all the ingredients in the order listed into a high-powered blender.
  3. Turn blender on low, gradually increasing to high speed. Blend until all ingredients are combined and mixture is smooth, about 1-2 minutes.

Putting it together

  1. Remove pan from the freezer, making sure crusts are hardened, then add 2 tablespoons of the chocolate filling to each well. Smooth with the back of a spoon and tap the pan against a hard surface to release the air out of each well.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, or overnight. Enjoy with fresh berries.


Remember the 1 hour 15 minutes prep time includes soaking the cashews so it’s not a lot work, just some waiting.
