I have been obsessed with the warm flavors of chai tea for years now and consider myself a connoisseur of sorts with the different spices and herbs that are in various blends. However, I prefer to drink rooibos or yerba mate chai as it is naturally caffeine-free {especially in the evenings}, but chai tea made with black tea seems not to affect my body like coffee’s caffeine.

Over the years, I have had a nighttime ritual with my daughter sipping chai tea while chatting or reading together.  Now that she is a teen, it truly is a treat to be still with her, and often I will brew a cup for myself only to hear another familiar voice beckoning for some too! There is something special about sipping these bold flavors of warm tea, even on a balmy Florida night.

I created these creamy Chai Cheesecake Bites by the necessity for a healthy on the run snack! They also can be enjoyed for breakfast as I incorporated some of my favorite nutrient-dense ingredients like cashews, flaxseeds, and our own Paleo Protein! If you have my husband’s book the FreeDiet, you might already be familiar with these bars as we first introduced them to you in the recipe section. Speaking of his book, it was a best seller in many categories on Amazon for weeks!

I am super proud of my guy for FINALLY finishing this book!  It is full of his life’s work and his personal story that may surprise you how sick he was, which makes this accomplishment all the sweeter! It indeed has been a game-changer for so many people all over the world.  The emails and calls we get at the clinic are inspiring and humbling. Thank you for helping us spread the word that you CAN take back your health NATURALLY!

In the meantime, enjoy these bars!♥


Chai Cheesecake Bites
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 15 bars
  • Filling:
  • 2½ cups soaked cashews
  • ¾ cup strong brewed chai tea cooled, or water w a pinch cloves, cardamom
  • 2 scoops Paleo Vanilla Protein
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil melted
  • 1 tbsp. gelatin or 1 packet
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. stevia or monk fruit
  • 1½ tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • Crust:
  • 2 cups raw or soaked pecans
  • ¼ tsp. pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • ¼ cup ground flax seed
  • 3 tbsp. water
  • ⅛th tsp. stevia or monk fruit
  • *1 tsp. maple extract optional
  1. To make the crust, preheat oven 325 degrees.
  2. Rinse off the pecans. In a large bowl mix oil, and toss in the pecans.
  3. Toss with ¼ tsp. salt, maple extract (if using) and bake nuts for 25 minutes at 325.
  4. To make the filling, in a blender cream, the soaked nuts with remaining ingredients and set aside.
  5. * If using water instead of tea pour in a blender and add *extra spices.
  6. After pecans are baked, in a food processor or strong blender, pulse the nuts into a rough flour.
  7. Add ground flaxseeds and dash salt pulse again.
  8. In an 11 x 9 (or so) glass dish, press the nut crust firmly.
  9. Add a few dashes salt across the crust. Let crust cool.
  10. Pour creamy filling over the crust. Dust cinnamon over the top.
  11. Chill for up to an hour. These bars can be cut and frozen too.
Firmly pressing the crust into the dish will assure bars hold together. If you notice after pulsing crust ingredients that it doesn't stick together when you press it between your fingers, you can always add another tbsp. or two of water. This will help the flaxseeds to bind with other ingredients and create a firm crust. Please use organic ingredients when you can.

    Hello! I was able to purchase pecan flour. Could you tell me how much pecan flour would equal the 2 cups of pecans in the Chai Cheesecake Bites recipe?

      Hi Kay, honestly it is a fool proof recipe and you can use 2 cups of whole pecans and grind them finely in a strong blender or a cusinart. Or just add 10 more nuts or so. Just be sure to stop blender and mix it if only the bottom nuts are ground otherwise, you will have a nice pecan nut butter.
