Vegan Baked Strawberry Cheesecake Pie Recipe (oil free)

vegan strawberry cheesecake recipe

My favorite dessert yet! Baked strawberry cheesecake that tastes almost as good as the real thing. Made without cashews, without oil, and without refined sugar!

Ingredients

Crust:

White cheesecake filling:

for strawberry jam on top:

Instructions

  1. Add crust ingredients (almonds, cinnamon, dates, and salt) to a food processor and process until a sticky crumbly dough forms (usually takes a good minute*). Press this almond-date mix into a baking dish or pan (I use this one – affiliate link), to form a crust. I line my pan with parchment paper to avoid the crust from sticking to the pan.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. 
  3. To form the vegan cheesecake filling: Add dry ingredients (coconut flour and tapioca starch or cornstarch) to a mixing bowl and combine. Combine wet ingredients (coconut milk, agave, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, vanilla flavoring) in a separate bowl and then add to the dry ingredients. Gently combine and transfer this mixture to the baking dish/pan and spread it on top of the crust. The mix should be wet but not pour-able – you’ll have to use a spoon to transfer it. (see pictures)
  4. Bake in the oven at 350F for 50 minutes or until the top of the cheesecake begins to turn golden brown.
  5. Prepare the strawberry jam. Add strawberries, vanilla flavoring, and agave to a saucepan over low/medium heat and cook until strawberries release their juices and are soft. Use a fork to press down on the strawberries to speed up the process. Takes around 10 minutes.
  6. Remove cheesecake from oven, let cool and then add strawberry jam on top with extra sliced strawberries on top. For best taste – let sit and chill in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
