PB Cheesecake Bars



We believe that when we indulge mindfully, we never, ever sacrifice.

In the bustling world of culinary delights, the quest for the perfect balance between indulgence and nourishment often feels like a labyrinthine journey. Yet, nestled within the folds of our PB Cheesecake Bars recipe lies a revelation: mindful indulgence never requires sacrifice. With a symphony of flavors orchestrated to perfection, each slice of our cheesecake bars embodies a harmonious blend of decadence and nutrition.

Crafted with intention, our recipe elevates the traditional cheesecake experience by infusing it with the essence of mindful consumption. A luxurious creaminess, achieved through a thoughtful amalgamation of greek yogurt, cream cheese, and protein peanut butter, forms the foundation of our bars. This delightful concoction not only tantalizes the taste buds but also delivers a substantial protein boost, ensuring that every indulgent moment contributes to your well-being.

The journey to mindful indulgence continues with our choice of sweeteners: erythritol and stevia. These natural alternatives infuse sweetness without the guilt, allowing you to savor each bite without compromise. Complemented by an easy-to-assemble graham cracker crust, our bars beckon with a promise of simplicity and satisfaction.

As the pièce de résistance, a Cocoa Bar In A Jar swirl adorns the surface, inviting you to delve into a world of rich, velvety chocolate. This decadent touch serves as a reminder that mindful indulgence is not about deprivation, but rather about embracing the pleasures of life in a conscious, deliberate manner.

Join us as we embark on a culinary odyssey where flavor and nutrition intertwine seamlessly. With our PB Cheesecake Bars, each slice becomes a celebration—a testament to the belief that when we indulge mindfully, we never, ever sacrifice.

Crust layer:

Cheesecake Layer:


Prepare your crust by crumbling into your high speed blender or food processor with your milk and mix or pulse until it starts to stick together or ball up.  Press evenly into an 8 x 8” baking dish. For your cheesecake layer, in a bowl, with a hand mixer, combine all ingredients except your Cocoa Bar topping.  Once combined well, pour onto your crust layer.  Drizzle your Cocoa Bar on top in an ‘S’ technique, then swirl through with a knife or chopstick in the opposite direction, in an up and down, swirling motion.  Bake 325 for 40-43 minutes. Let cool completely then chill in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, but preferably overnight.  Slice into 9 pieces or 16 smaller, mini cheesecake portions and enjoy!
