Vegan raspberry cheesecake bars

A combination of delicious pie crust, juicy raspberry filling and cheesecake cream on top creates an amazing dessert, perfect for hot summer days!

If you love raspberries, you have to try these triple layered sweet-sour bars. We love making them in the summer, because raspberries and lemon cheesecake cream on top make it very refreshing, so it is a perfect summer treat. And it’s a great way to use all fresh raspberries from the garden. The pie has 3 delicious layers: pie crust on the bottom, sweet raspberry cream in the middle and refreshing cheesecake cream on top. All of the layers complement each other and create a perfect dessert.

Crust

Amazing pie crust that just melts in your mouth is the base of these bars. It is pretty low in fat, since it only contains a bit of coconut oil and other ingredients are: soya yoghurt, flour (we usually use half-white flour, because it is a bit healthier, but you can also use other kinds), cold water, maple syrup, baking powder and a pinch of salt. This is all you need to make this perfect crust! And you can also use this recipe to make all other kinds of pies.

Tips

  1. After you prepare the dough, put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, so that coconut oil hardens a bit and you can easily form the dough.
  2. After you put dough in a pan, make some holes in it with a fork.
  3. Bake crust on its own for around 10 minutes first and only then add both creams. This way it will rise easier and the juice from raspberries won’t absorb into crust and you will get a very nice crust.

Raspberry filling

Raspberry filling is incredibly simple to make, you only need three ingredients: raspberries, maple syrup and corn starch. Event hough it’s made with so few ingredients, it tastes amazing, because raspberries are already very delicious on their own. And maple syrup makes them a bit sweeter and corn starch is there to make the filling nicely thick.

Cheesecake cream

Cheesecake cream rounds up the whole dessert and makes it even more refreshing. We love these cream because it tastes amazing and is also super simple to make. It tastes like a cheesecake but is made with tofu, soy yogurt, maple syrup, vanilla extract, corn starch and a bit of lemon juice. We use similar recipes to make cheesecake pies (cherry cheesecake or regular cheesecake) and even braided sweet bread.
