chocolate and hazelnut cheesecake bars

A healthy desert that tastes like Ferrero.

There are few things that go together better than chocolate and hazelnut, so if you are craving something chocolatey, this slice of heaven will definitely hit the spot. We think they taste a little bit like a Ferrero Rocher! It’s seriously hard to believe a desert so rich and creamy could be dairy and refined sugar free.

These ‘mock’ cheesecake bars have a crunchy nut base made from hazelnuts, cashews, crunchy activated buckwheat grouts and dates. The creamy filling is an amazing contrast. Raw nuts, cacao powder, coconut cream and honey are simply blitzed in the Vibe Blender until silky smooth. Watch whole nuts turn to cream in seconds! For extra decadence, we've topped the filling with hazelnuts and a drizzle of melted chocolate.
