Oatmeal Berry Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Make a delicious oatmeal berry cheesecake bars recipe using just a few simple ingredients.

I just realized it has been way too long since I shared a recipe with you. I have just been having so much fun playing this summer that I really haven’t spent too much time in the kitchen. We are getting ready to head out of town for another long weekend of fun, and I needed to use up some ingredients so I decided to make a new recipe based on what I needed to get out of my fridge.

And guess what? It’s awesome so I thought I’d better share this delicious oatmeal berry cheesecake bars recipe (and it helps me find the recipe when I want to make it again).

This recipe is a necessity recipe. I was trying to clear out our fridge before leaving on a long weekend trip. I bought a bunch of strawberries and blueberries to go with our yogurt and granola while camping last weekend, but apparently I wasn’t the only one with that idea and we ended up having a lot of berries. So unfortunately we came home with a lot of berries.

I also had 6 lbs of cream cheese in my fridge! How does one end up with 6 lbs of cream cheese you ask? Well, I sent the hubby to Sam’s club for a few other groceries, but I had just made him pumpkin cookies and he wanted cream cheese frosting. The 6 lb cream cheese was only $10 so I told him to just go for it. I was sure I would be able to use it up (famous last words).

So when you have a fridge full of berries and a giant brick of cream cheese you definitely need cheesecake. And since we are heading out of town for a fun weekend with my family, I figured cheesecake bars were the best way to clear out my fridge for the weekend. I had also just been experimenting with my wheat grinder and grinding up some oat flour, so I figured I would add some oats into the mix too.

What I ended up with was absolutely delicious! I think I need to try this “What’s in the fridge” game more often.

It's only 9 am, but I could SO go for a bar (or two!) of this goodness! Cheesecake bars are my favorite because they are so much easier to make than an actual cheesecake. I love the oatmeal crust idea. This sounds so so so good!

Seriously, there is fruit and oatmeal with these so they are practically a breakfast food :) Cheesecake bars are definitely easier to make and still delicious!
