Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

Friends… I think you are either going to love me or hate me, for the dairy-free cheesecake addiction that I am about to instill in you. Trust me and make them! These were outrageous. My trusty taste-tester was blown away.


A little side note: While I love a good treat (I’ll take a chocolate chip cookie or a brownie any day), moderation is key. These bars are made with real food and good-for-you ingredients, but they are not made to eat the entire batch! Okay, rant done. Go enjoy one or two!
