Blueberries, cheesecake, an almond and hemp seed crumble, and a hint of cinnamon… all wrapped up into one whimsical-looking scrumptious little treat.
These cheesecake bars are super easy to throw together, nutrient-packed and satisfying, and handy to have around in the freezer for when you need a little something sweet. Or maybe for when you just need a mood lifter — those cute and colorful little sliced blueberries (or hidden blueberry “gems” inside the filling) make me smile every time 🙂
So while these bars may not be the most “elegant” treat, they’re super tasty nonetheless. The extra crumble on top gives these cheesecake bars a lovely chewy texture, which works nicely with the creamy filling. Sort of like a cookie sandwich filled with cheesecake and blueberries… only all grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, etc.
One quick note is that this is a recipe for a small batch dessert which only works well in an older style Vitamix or a similar power blender. If you have a newer Vitamix or a power blender that has a wider pitcher, you’ll need to triple the recipe for it to work. But hey, on the plus side, at least you’ll have more dessert 😉
