All of my family members go crazy for anything sweet and berry. They say it’s a perfect combination.  To be honest, I’m a chocolate and peanut butter girl, through and through, but I must say, I did enjoy this cake.

I love using granola as the base to my raw cheesecakes. Depending on the granola you use, it can totally change the flavour of the entire dessert.  Yep,  you guessed it, I used peanut crunch granola for this cake!

It’s fresh, light and a perfect summer treat.  And oh my, it’s so pretty!

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of granola did you use for the base of this berry granola raw cheesecake?

I used Plant Life Food Co Peanut Crunch granola as the base for this cheesecake. The choice of granola can influence the overall flavor of the dessert, so you can experiment with different granola varieties to suit your preferences.

Can I use a different type of nut butter in the base, or is peanut butter essential?

While the recipe calls for natural peanut butter in the base, you can certainly experiment with other nut or seed butters if you have dietary preferences or allergies. Almond butter or cashew butter can be excellent alternatives to achieve a similar texture and flavor.

Do I need to soak the raw cashews for the cheesecake topping, or can I skip this step?

Soaking the raw cashews is recommended, as it helps to soften them and makes it easier to achieve a smooth and creamy consistency in the cheesecake topping. While it's possible to skip soaking, it may take longer to blend the mixture to the desired smoothness.

Can I substitute fresh berries for frozen ones in the topping?

Yes, you can substitute fresh berries for frozen ones in the topping. However, using frozen berries can provide a slightly thicker texture to the topping, making it easier to achieve the desired consistency.

How should I store this berry granola raw cheesecake?

This dessert is best kept in the freezer. Store it there and remove it about 30 minutes before serving to allow it to thaw slightly, making it easier to cut and enjoy.
