Molasses Cheesecake w/a Gingersnap Protein Crust

IMG_0784.JPG

Ingredients

Cheesecake Batter
6 oz Cashews, soaked and rinsed
1/2C Full Fat Coconut Milk (canned)
1/4C Lemon Juice
1/3C (5.3T) Coconut Oil
1/2C (8T) Carob Molasses
Gingersnap Protein Crust
30 Trader Joe’s Low Fat Ginger Cat Cookies
1 scoop True Nutrition Rice Protein (flavor of choice)
2T Carob Molasses
1T Coconut Oil

Directions

In a food processor, grind 30 Trader Joe’s Low Fat Ginger Cat Cookies. Transfer to a bowl and stir in 1 scoop rice protein, 2T molasses, and 1T coconut oil. It will be pretty dry but you will be able to pack it together either in a pie dish or individual silicon cupcake molds. For the cheesecake batter you’re going to soak 6 oz of cashews for about 30 minutes. Rinse them and drain them then transfer to a food processor and grind for about 5 minutes or until they are creamy. Add in 1/2C coconut milk, 1/3C coconut oil, 1/2C molasses and 1/4C lemon juice. Process until smooth. Pour over crust. If you use 8 cupcake molds then you will have batter left over for sure. If you make it in a pie pan, you may want to double the crust. Freeze until solid. I recommend the silicon cupcake molds because the are individual portions and they are so easy to flip out. The crust makes enough for 8 molds and the batter makes enough for about 12. The leftover batter I just poured in four molds by itself. Pretty good stuff. I’ll definitely be making this again. The “cheesecake” is the perfect consistency straight out of the freezer. It even stays pretty solid in the fridge. I adapted this recipe from this Simple Vegan Cheesecake.

Nutty Vegan Protein Bars

20140519-085223.jpg

Ingredients

3 oz (3/4C) Roasted (Shelled) Peanuts
1/4C Pure Maple Syrup
2t Pure Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Scoops Rice Protein Powder (flavor of choice)
1/4C Old Fashioned Oats
1 oz (1/4C) Cashews
1 oz (1/4C) Almonds

Directions

In a food processor, grind 3 oz (3/4C) roasted, shelled peanuts into peanut butter. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in 1/4C pure maple syrup and 2t pure vanilla extract until well combined. Drop in 1 1/2 scoops of rice protein, I used a Cookies & Cream flavor. In a VitaMix, grind 1/4C old fashioned oats into oat flour and transfer to the bowl. Then pulse 1 oz (1/4C) cashew pieces and halves for a second to chop them up. Transfer to the large bowl. Do the same thing with 1 oz (1/4C) whole almonds. Then stir everything together until well combined. The batter will be kind of crumbly (you may want to use an extra oz of peanuts in the peanut butter). Place on a sheet of wax paper and flatten the batter to pack it all together. Place in the freezer for about an hour. Take it out of the freezer and cut into pieces. I cut mine into little 1″ bars but they are kind of small. I got really good reviews on these, the consistency is very interesting because of the rice protein but it’s really good.

Makes: 8 bars
