Vegan No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars

Vegan No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars. The name speaks for itself, right? These bars are honestly life-changing. Cheesecake and cookie dough are two of my favorite foods, so I just had to combine them into one glorious treat! You can’t even tell they’re vegan and gluten-free. Take that, food allergies!three vegan cheesecake bars stacked on eachother with a cookie dough base. Chocolate chips and more cheesecake bars are shown in the background.

Anyone else actually obsessed with cheesecake?? When I first realized I was lactose intolerant, I immediately was sad because it meant no more cheesecake. Seriously, I went to Cheesecake Factory for my birthday like every year growing up. Add to that a coconut allergy, and I usually can’t even have the non-dairy kinds! So, naturally I had to make my own cheesecake. Thankfully, Kite Hill Creamery makes a cream cheese with no dairy and no coconut. And honestly, this is a trillion times better than any store-bought vegan cheesecake! More of my favorite vegan goods are can be shopped at my favorites on the blog.

No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake Is EASY!

I feel like people often think cheesecake is a “difficult” dessert. Understandably so, because a traditional cheesecake can be hard to make not split at the top. But these vegan cheesecake bars are really hard to mess up. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with peanut butter, vegan butter, vegan cream cheese, and sugar! The fact that they are no-bake is just a cherry on top because they are perfect for the warmer weather when you don’t want to turn your oven on.

I hope some of you out there love cookie dough as much as I do. As much as I love cheesecake, I think I may love cookie dough even more. It really is a match made in heaven!
