Peanut Butter Cheezcake

I used to love cheesecakes but after going vegan over 10 years ago and gluten free my options are much more limited. The truth is at this point I much prefer desserts that have real ingredients and don't have the processed sugar. I just crash pretty quickly versus the bonus of having stable energy and enjoying something sweet.

 

I'm a big believer that we don't need to give up anything. In fact, what we gain is so much more meaningful and energizing. I also don't feel the need to overeat with such a filling dessert like this. Just a few bites are enough.

Today's my birthday and last night I was thinking I'd love to have something sweet but I don't want to just order a dessert at a restaurant. So I spent last night looking for some recipes and 'healthifying them' making them my own.

And, since friends and family often ask for alternative celebration ideas...here you go 🙂

RECIPE:
