NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE BARS

Perfectly portioned bars, this sugar-free recipe is a classic no-bake cheesecake. Refreshing for fun summer entertaining and easy to make.

A super simple, buttery, the almond crumb is the base, and a lemony cream cheese topped with sugar-free sweetened blueberries is the filling, which adds intense bursts of fruity flavor. Feel free to swap with raspberries, blackberries, or even pitted cherries if you’re not a fan of blueberries.

CAN WE MAKE THE CRUMB BASE NUT-FREE?

You can swap the almonds with sunflower seed flour if you prefer not to use almond flour or if you or someone you love has a nut allergy. Use raw, unsalted sunflowers if you can’t find sunflower seed flour and grind them in a food processor until fine. You will have sunflower seed butter so be careful not to over-process.

CAN THESE CHEESECAKE BARS BE DAIRY-FREE?

Yes, you can make these bars dairy free!! Be sure to replace the butter used for softened coconut oil in the crumb base. Swap with full-fat canned coconut milk to replace the full-fat cream cheese used in the filling. Your cheesecake bars will not solidify so be sure to only use the thick “cream” from the canned coconut milk. In the fridge overnight, you can place your canned coconut milk, unopened. Flip it upside down and to be easily removed from the top of the can, this will allow the watery coconut milk when you open it the next morning. Drain or use in a smoothie! With all other milk, coconut milk in a carton in the refrigerator section, will not work in this recipe(only canned will work).

Swirl

  1. Add the frozen berries, Swerve, and water in a small saucepan.
  2. (It depends on the amount of water, depending on how icy your blueberries are. Start with ½ tablespoon and if needed, add more. As they cook, the blueberries will release water.)
