Raw Vegan Cheesecake Bars

There is nothing more disappointing than finding a recipe that looks absolutely amazing but the ingredients come from an exotic island in the middle of nowhere.

But today you are in luck. This recipe contains only 9 ingredients, and I am 100% positive that you will be able to find all the ingredients in your pantry!

This recipe yields 8 large bars (like above) or you can slice the Cheesecake into 24 mini bites like below. Either way this is a delightful treat to have in your freezer when your sweet tooth kicks in.

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 tbsp vanilla extract

Chocolate:
1/4 cup chocolate chips

1 tbsp coconut oil

Directions

1) Blend all of the crust ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix . Press the crust into a lined 4×9 inch rectangular baking dish.

2) After the Vitamix/ food processor has been cleaned, blend the cheesecake ingredients to the food processor until the mixture is smooth. Pour over the crust layer and spread it out evenly.
