Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake with a gluten-free oat crust, dairy-free coconut cashew cream cheese filling, and a blueberry topping.


Almond-Oat Crust

Blueberry Cheesecake Filling

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup coconut cream (use coconut cream OR solid parts of full-fat coconut milk ONLY)
  • 8-oz. vegan cream cheese
  • 1 TBSP arrowroot or cornstarch
  • generous 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 TBSP melted coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP lemon juice
  • ½ cup freeze-dried blueberries

Blueberry Topping

  • 1 12-oz. bag frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 lemon, squeezed
  • 2 TBSP pure maple syrup
  • 2 TBSP chia seeds


  1. Add the raw cashews to a mixing bowl and cover with boiling hot water. Let them soak for 1 hour, uncovered, then drain and rinse. 
  2. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350°F and line a bread pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Add the oats, almonds, sea salt, and coconut sugar to a high speed blender and process them on high until you have a fine meal. 
  4. Add in the melted coconut oil and pulse it on low until a loose dough is formed, scraping down sides as needed. The mixture should stick together when pressed with two fingers. 
  5. Transfer the mixture to a parchment-lined bread pan and spread evenly to distribute. Be sure to push up on the sides to form the crust edges.
  6. Transfer the bread pan to the oven for 20 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven to cool slightly, then reduce oven heat to 325°F.
  7. Rinse out the blender, then add in the cashews, coconut cream, vegan cream cheese, arrowroot starch, pure maple syrup, coconut oil, lemon juice, and freeze-dried blueberries. Blend on high until the mixture is very creamy and smooth, scraping down sides as needed.
  8. Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding more lemon juice for acidity or maple syrup for sweetness.
  9. Pour the filling over the pre-baked crust and spread into an even layer. Tap the cake pan on the counter several times to remove any air bubbles.
  10. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the edges look very slightly dry and only the center has a little jiggle. This is normal! 
  11. While the cheesecake is baking, prepare the blueberry topping. Add the frozen blueberries to a small saucepan over medium heat. Once the fruit begins to melt and bubble, add in the maple syrup and lemon juice. Reduce the heat to low and allow the mixture to simmer for 8-10 minutes, until bubbling, warm, and thickened. Allow the mixture to cool completely while waiting for the cheesecake to bake. 
  12. When the cheesecake is done, let it rest for 10 minutes at room temperature to slightly cool. Spoon the cooled blueberry filling on top and spread into an even layer. 
  13. Once the cheesecake is completely cooled, cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least 4-6 hours. To serve, lift out of the pan with parchment paper and cut into bars. 
  14. Store leftovers in the refrigerator, covered, for 5-7 days. Serve chilled straight from the fridge!
