Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl Cheesecake {gluten free, vegan}

One of the most common questions I get is “Where do you get your protein?”. Generally I rattle off the usual vegan protein list (tofu, quinoa, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole grains, leafy greens, you know… the places where all those muscle-y animals like cows and gorillas get their proteins.
