  • 12 vegan, gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 3 1/2 tbsps vegan block butter, not spread
  • Filling
  • 300 grams vegan dark chocolate
  • 350 grams Daiya Feta Style Block
  • 1 cup Daiya Plain Cream Cheeze Style Spread
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsps espresso, or 1 tsp espresso powder dissolved in 2 tbsps water
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oat milk
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder



Line the bottom and sides of an 8” cheesecake tin with parchment paper.

Blitz the cookies and sea salt in a food processor for 30 seconds. Add the vegan butter and blitz again until incorporated. The mixture should stick to your fingers when you touch it.

Firmly and evenly press the cookie mixture onto the lined cheesecake tin and allow it to set in the freezer while you prep the filling.


Melt the chocolate on a double boiler on the stove, or in a heatproof bowl over simmering water until smooth.

Into a blender, crumble the Feta Style Block, and add the cream cheeze, maple, vanilla, espresso, milk, and salt. Blend on high until smooth.

Add the chocolate and cocoa powder and continue to blend until incorporated.

Pour the filling into the prepared pan and set in the fridge for 3 to 4 hours or preferably overnight. When ready to serve, carefully remove the cheezecake from the tin and cut into slices and serve.
