Grain Free Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites with Cashew Crust
I’m always in the kitchen baking, I mean I literally feel like I live in there. I usually bake with gluten free flours, but from time to time I like to mix it up and bake grain free. When I do its very important to me that I don’t sacrifice on flavor and texture. Grain Free can be a little more tricky to work with. I especially loved this Grain Free Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites with Cashew Crust recipe, it was almost too easy to work with. I felt like a cheater haha! If you tend to lean more on the grain free side of the world then you definitely need to check out these Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter Cookies . These delicious bites are flourless, giving them an extra added bonus… Woohoo!
Cheesecake is one of my husbands favorite desserts! Anytime I say the word ” cheesecake ” he will bend over backwards for me just to get me to make it for him! Needless to say he was drooling at the mouth over these delicious cheesecake bites. The cashew crust gives it this really nice creamy – buttery flavor. I love using cashews when I bake, they are lower in fat compared to other nuts and are rich in protein and magnesium. Another delicious recipe to try with cashews are these Dark Chocolate Dipped Cashew Cookies.
Here are a few thoughts and tips :
- Make sure when you cream your wet ingredients you stay PATIENT. It takes a few minutes for the ingredients to combine and smooth out.
- Keep an eye on your cheesecake bites , oven temperatures vary.
- If you go with the dairy free option, keep in mind the taste and texture are NOT real cream cheese so it may slightly differ… This is why I suggest Wayfare Cream Cheese , the flavor and texture is the closest I have found to real cream cheese. ( This is my personal opinion )
Thank you for trying this recipe! I hope you have a happy and blessed day. Check out all of our gluten free desserts here
