Lemon Cheesecake Bars

a healthier twist on our favorite, shareable, spring-time dessert!

Whenever we think about spring and summer desserts, our mind always goes to lemon bars and cheesecake. So we thought, what the heck, let's introduce a Kokada, refined sugar free, vegan version of our favorite dessert!

Base Layer Ingredients

·     2 packets of graham crackers (18 sheets or ~10 oz)

·     1 cup melted butter (not too hot, let it cool closer to room temp)

·     1 tbsp Kokada Classic

·     1/2 tsp lemon zest

Filling Ingredients

·     2 cups of soaked cashews (at least 15 minutes in boiling water)

·     3/4 cup lemon juice

·     1/4 cup Kokada Classic

·     1/4 cup maple syrup

·     2 tbsp arrowroot powder

·     2 tsp vanilla extract

·     1 tbsp lemon zest

·     1/4 tsp salt

Put Together Your Base!

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Blend all the ingredients in a food processor. Scrape down the sides and keep blending until you have a fine, crumbly texture.

3. Press firmly into an 8x8 parchment lined pan.

4. Bake for 10 minutes while you prepare the filling.

Make Your Filling!

1. Blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender (we use a Vitamix) until the filling is smooth. Scrape down the sides when needed.

2. Pour the filling over the baked crust.
