Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake Bars

It’s a 3-in-1: Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake Bars! And they’re no bake, vegan, gluten free, flourless, refined sugar free and absolutely delicious.

One of my unpopular food opinions is that I don’t love chocolate (there, I said it) — but I made these for someone and I’ve got to say, even I thought they were pretty darn good. And I had some chocolate-loving taste testers who absolutely loved these as well.

This is in fact my first real chocolate recipe ever shared on my blog — so for all you chocolate lovers this one’s for you!

Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake Bars

A 3-in-1 no bake, vegan, gluten free, flourless and refined sugar free dessert that tastes like a chocolate lover's dream.
Servings 9 bars


For the Crust

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup dates (softened)
  • ½ cup raw almonds (soaked)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • ¼ cup oat flour
  • ½ tsp salt

Cashew Cheesecake Layer

  • 1 cup raw cashews (soaked)
  • ¼ cup full fat canned coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Chocolate Mousse Layer

  • 1 pack vegan chocolate pudding (I used Simply Delish*)
  • cup full fat canned coconut milk


  • Soak cashews, almonds and dates in boiling hot water for 1 hour minimum. Strain and pat dry.
  • Prepare the crust: combine all ingredients in a good blender or food processor and pulse until fully combined. Transfer to a lined 6 x 6 baking dish and press into a flat layer.
  • Prepare the cheesecake layer: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour on top of crust and spread evenly.
  • Place the dish in the freezer for 1½ – 2 hours.
  • Prepare the chocolate mousse layer: Using a hand mixer, whisk the pudding mix and coconut milk for about 2 minutes. Place in the fridge until the bottom two layers are ready.
  • Once the bottom 2 layers have set, remove from freezer and spread the mousse layer on top.
  • Place it back in the freezer for another 1½ – 2 hours.
  • Slice into 9 bars and enjoy!


Note: Store in the fridge for a softer mousse-like texture, or store in the freezer and slightly defrost before eating for an ice cream bar.
