Salted Caramel No Bake Vegan Dessert

No Bake Vegan Cheesecake-Style Salted Caramel Dessert Recipe

Salted Caramel Vegan No Bake Cheesecake Dessert


I had no intentions on making this cheesecake style dessert today, however I had a mishap with some would-be crisps and ended up with a lot of refined-sugar free cookie crumbs to put to use. When I think cookie crumbs, I think cheesecake crust, and that brought me to the decision to make this no-bake vegan cheesecake style dessert! I wanted to try something new, so I topped this dessert with refined sugar free, vegan caramel sauce made with dates and maple syrup, and a sprinkle of sea salt. 



To make this delicious treat, you will need cookie crumbs for the crust. You can use store bought crumbs for baking, or if you want to keep this dessert refined-sugar free, make your own! You can use my recipe for biscotti, and substitute 1/3 Cup maple Syrup in place of sugar; then, instead of slicing the biscotti into sticks, simply break it into large crumbs before baking, then blitz it in the blender to make crumbs. Alternatively, if you don’t want to go through all that trouble just to make crumbs (I don’t blame you), and would like to make it gluten-free, you could also blitz your favourite gluten-free granola in the blender until it makes crumbs.
