Add raw cashews to a mixing bowl and cover with boiling water. Let soak while you are making the graham cracker crust. –
Add the graham crackers and melted vegan butter, to a food processor and process until a loose crust is formed. You should be able to squeeze the mixture between two fingers and form a crust instead of it crumbling. If too dry, add a bit more melted vegan butter.
Transfer the mixture to the parchment-lined baking pan and spread evenly. Press down firmly until it’s evenly distributed and well packed. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown
While the crust is in the oven, add the cashews, lemon juice, lemon zest, maple syrup, vanilla extract and coconut cream to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the custard mixture over the baked graham cracker crust and spread until smooth. Bake for 1 hour or until the edges look very slightly dry and the center appears jiggly.
Let rest for 30 minutes, then transfer to the refrigerator to let cool completely for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
These bars are the perfect spring treat! The lemon filling had such a nice brightness, and I loved it with the crisp graham cracker crust.
