Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 ounces dark chocolate melted
  • 1 cup almonds with skins
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (gluten-free oats were used in this recipe)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil melted

Filling

  • 13 1/2 ounces coconut milk can, refrigerate can 8-24 hours (We used Native Forest)
  • 8 1/2 ounces cream cheese low-fat, softened
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter natural, smooth or crunchy will work
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Topping

  • 13 1/2 ounces coconut milk can, refrigerate can overnight (We love Native Forest)
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (We used Enjoy Life)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Note: baking is for the crust only and not the cheesecake.

Crust

  • Use a double boiler to melt chocolate. Add almonds, oats, and salt to a food processor and pulse until a crumbly consistency. Combine in a medium bowl almond mixture, melted chocolate, and coconut oil. Retain 1 tablespoon crumbs for later.
  • Add crumbs to a 9-inch pie plate. Press crumbs evenly along the bottom and sides, or use a springform pan and press crumbs along the bottom and about 1/2-inch up the sides of the pan. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, remove, and allow to cool completely.
  • Tip - Place plastic wrap over fingers of one hand and press the crumbs in place or use the bottom of a glass.

Filling

  • Add canned coconut milk to a medium mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixture on medium-high until thickened, approximately 5-6 minutes. Add cream cheese and coconut sugar and continue beating until sugar is dissolved, approximately 2 minutes.
  • Add peanut butter, coconut oil, and vanilla, and beat just until incorporated. Pour filling in a cooled crust and refrigerate until set, approximately 5-6 hours.

Topping

  • Add chilled coconut milk, chocolate chips, and coconut sugar to a medium saucepan. Heat over low heat until all of the chocolate chips are melted and coconut sugar is dissolved. Stir to combine and add vanilla. Remove from heat and allow to cool at room temperature. Pour topping over chilled pie filling and refrigerate until chocolate is set, approximately 2 hours.

  1. Great recipe…..but……18 SMART POINTS !!! Yikes, I go to your site for ideas for lighter recipes. This would definitely be a splurge !

    1. We agree, Dahlia. 🙂 This recipe is meant to be a holiday splurge… but, even with the additional SmartPoints, this version is still made with only 100% clean ingredients, so if you’re going to splurge, it’s a healthier option than many others.

    1. Tahnya, The coconut milk is what shoots up the points. This rich dessert is an indulgence for sure! I like to use coconut milk for its creamy effect and healthy fats. 🙂
