Prep time: 40 min
Cook time: 1 Hour
Ready in about 7 hours and 40 min
• Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan with parchment paper.
• Combine gingersnap crumbs with melted margarine and mix well. Press crumb mixture into bottom of prepared pan; place pan in the freezer.
• Beat chevre and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the cheese mixture before adding the next. Mix in coconut milk. Add coconut yogurt, vanilla extract, and gluten-free flour; mix just until incorporated.
• Pour cheesecake batter into chilled crust and bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn oven off and allow the cake to cool in oven with its door closed for at least 2 hours. Refrigerate for an additional 4 to 6 hours before serving.
• Looking to replace the eggs in the recipe try either chickpea flour or silken tofu
• substitute: mix 3 tablespoons of chickpea flour with 3 tablespoons of water for each egg until creamy and thick
• substitute: add 1/4 cup plain silken tofu for each egg. Note in most cases the tofu will make the batter too thick. So, you will want to add ½ a teaspoon of baking soda to counteract
