These Triple Layer Vegan Blueberry Cheesecake Bars are going to make you guys swoon and are super easy to make!
I am so excited to share these triple layer vegan blueberry cheesecake bars with you guys, it has been killing me that I haven’t gotten this blog post up yet. My fruity-dessert loving boyfriend was going wild over them and I knew that meant that I had created something pretty dang good. He wouldn’t even bring them into work to share with his co-workers because he wanted them all for himself!!
If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you wouldn’t know that Tom and his co-workers rate my treats on a large Excel sheet. It’s a fun little game they have going on and so whenever I send Tom to work with a new baked good or treat, they send me back a full report.
Well these blueberry cheesecake bars didn’t actually make it into work because someone wanted to eat them all for himself!
Anyway, while they look complex – they are SO simple! The bottom layer is just ground up granola. The middle layer is my easy vegan cream cheese frosting, and the top layer is my simple 3-ingredient chia jam. The assembly is the thing that takes the longest.
I am super pumped to make these all summer long and am hoping that one day they will make it into Tom’s work so I can get the official rating from the coworkers.
