Vegan Lemon Cheesecake Bites

Vegan Lemon Cheesecake Bites

Bite sized lemony treats with an authentic baked cheesecake texture. You can make as per this recipe, or simply cut more traditionally into cake shaped slices/wedges for a dessert serving. The toppings are optional. Pictured here with our homemade paleo chocolate, a fruit coulis would make this a wonderful summer experience, or try with some coconut whipped cream for extra indulgence.
