Last calendar week it was lemon strawberry, too today we’re going inwards some other direction entirely. Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 direction where the streets are lined amongst thick chewy chocolate chips cookies too paved amongst chocolate glaze! And the houses are made of…vanilla cheesecake too kokosnoot whipped cream?! Okay, I’ve gone every bit good far, let’s speak delicious details earlier I lose you lot all.
To root off, I had a determination to brand regarding the bottom cookie layer – to bake or non to bake?! If I went completely no-bake, what we’d actually convey hither is is cookie dough cheesecake, which of class would endure ridiculously good, but, it wasn’t quite my vision. I wanted kind of a cookie cake topped amongst all the other creamy layers too chocolate, hence I decided to bake the bottom layer into a thick, chewy, vegan chocolate chip cookie.
- For the Cookie Layer:
- 2/3 loving cup smoothen almond butter
- 1/4 loving cup refined kokosnoot petroleum melted too cooled*

- For the Vanilla Cheesecake Layer:
- 2 cups cashews soaked for at to the lowest degree four hours (or overnight), rinsed good too gently dried amongst newspaper towel
- 1/4 loving cup refined kokosnoot petroleum soft but solid
- 1/2 loving cup pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp body of body of water salt
- For the Coconut Whipped Cream:
- 1 pocket-size tin post away kokosnoot cream chilled overnight (about 2/3-3/4 cup)

Chill the dough if real gummy for close five minutes, too hence stir inwards 1/3 loving cup of the chocolate chips.
- Press into the bottom of the pan, too hence add together the remaining chocolate chips on top too press in. bake inwards the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes (place the pan on a baking canvas inwards representative of leaking if you’re using a springform pan) or until centre is exactly barely set. To proceed the crust chewy it's essential non to over-bake (under-baking exactly a fleck is okay, since the cake volition endure stored chilled)
- After removing from oven, cool on wire rack inwards the pan.
- To Make the Cheesecake:
- While the cookie layer cools, brand the vanilla cheesecake layer. Combine all ingredients inwards a high speed blender or nutrient processor, too process/blend on high for several minutes, scraping the sides every bit needed, until a thick creamy mixture forms.
- Pour the cashew mixture over the cooled crust (or by too large cooled) too scrape the sides of the blender to stitch all of it. Now it's fourth dimension for the cake to set. If you lot are inwards a hurry, you lot tin post away ready the cake inwards the freezer yesteryear roofing too freezing for close ii hours.

Allow to cool to room temp earlier drizzling. Glaze volition harden subsequently beingness drizzled on the mutual frigidity cheesecake.
*I used refined to avoid the kokosnoot season that extra virgin has
**The glaze is alone optional too makes it extra rich. In house of kokosnoot oil, you lot tin post away also run palm petroleum shortening
***Prior to topping, cheesecake tin post away endure stored inwards the freezer earlier beingness thawed inwards the fridge for several hours for a creamy texture.
