This recipe is Fall perfection. Add in that it is no-bake, raw and made with whole, natural ingredients and you have a dessert made in heaven.

I love making vegan cheesecakes and especially raw/vegan cheesecakes because A- I love cheesecake and B- I try to avoid dairy 99% of the time. Around 7 years ago I started studying to become a Holistic Nutritionist and was really taken back by the information regarding dairy and acne. For myself I suffered with flare ups of acne since I was about 12 years old. I was amazing at hiding it including thick bangs to cover my forehead and killer makeup techniques (really it was just caking on makeup – not cute). When I decided to commit to cutting out dairy I saw a drastic change in my skin.

I know to this day if dairy creeps back into my diet I tend to break out. So, for me, raw vegan cheesecake is what I enjoy.

This recipe came together very naturally with the abundance of BC apples here in Vancouver, BC right now. And everyone knows I love my raw vegan caramel!
