Vegan Purple Sweet Potato Cheezcake Cups

This is recipe I wanted to try for a long time since I haven’t seen anything quite like it before. This cheezcake does not use any cashews, or oils, or coconut cream yet is still creamy and delicious. Basically just toast your oats and process with the crust ingredients, and press into a cupcake tin. Then process the cooked sweet potato with the filling ingredients and fill the cups. Freeze for a couple hours and you’re done! This recipe is full of whole foods and minimal fats while still being creamy and sweet. Enjoy!
