Baked Apples Stuffed with Yummy Vegan Cheesecake!
8 ounce plain vegan cream cheese
2 cored apples. (any kind of apple you prefer.) I tried one Macintosh and one granny smith
1 cup vegan sugar
a couple dashes lemon juice
2 cups apple sauce
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 cap-full of vanilla extract
a few squeezes of maple syrup
1 tablespoon egg replacer
I made this for the first time earlier today and it was even better than I had expected! (I've had my fair share of flops when it comes to throwing random recipes together!)
You can use any kind of apple you'd like. I made one for myself with a granny smith because they're my favorite and one for my boyfriend with Macintosh.
First, peel and core your apples. (This recipe was for two large apples.)
Then, mix plain vegan cream cheese, 1 cup vegan sugar, lemon juice (to your taste), vanilla extract, egg replacer, and a tiny squeeze of maple syrup together in bowl until smooth and creamy.
Pour two cups apple sauce on bottom of the tray you'll be baking apples in.(I baked this in a small glass bread pan.)
Place apples in pan filled with applesauce and spoon cheesecake filling into cored apples. It's ok if they're excess dripping over the apples, it's yummy regardless!
Sprinkle walnuts on top of apples, spoon a little applesauce all over the sides of the apples, and drizzle some maple syrup and you're good to go!
I baked these at 375 for about a half an hour and they were perfect!
A little bit messy, but they're definitely worth trying. We ate these warm at first with the insides gooey and delicious, but I refrigerated what I couldn't finish and I think they were even better chilled. (When they're chilled, the cheesecake filling should firm like real cheesecake.)
Hope you enjoy!
