Method

No Bake Cherry Cheesecake Bars is a community recipe submitted by FarranWincott and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  1. Line a loaf tin with parchment paper. Add all base ingredients to a food processor or high speed blender and blend until it forms a dough. Press evenly into loaf tin and set aside to chill in the fridge.
  2. Blend all cashew filling ingredients together for at least 8 minutes, until super smooth and silky.
  3. Pour into a bowl and rinse out the blender. Add most of the cherries and agave to the blender and process until smooth.
  4. Spoon heaping tablespoons of cashew vanilla and cherry filling on to the base and swirl with a chopstick to combine. Top with remaining cherries and set aside to firm up in the freezer overnight.
  5. Let thaw for 20 mins before slicing and eating.
