Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars
Try these Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars when you want to give your friends and family a bit of a surprise treat. The extra special combination includes oats in the crusty base, which give a wonderful buttery and nutty flavor to this dish, as well as the coconut oil that is added to the chocolate for the topping, which will impart a fabulous rich and coconut-y taste that enhances chocolate nicely. It is still fairly quick to come together, although there are three layers to the recipe. The middle is a lovely cheesy (thus, the cheesecake part) and creamy blend of cheese and chocolate chips. So this dessert really has it all: a cookie base made from scratch, a middle that is creamy and a bit crunchy and a smooth chocolate topping with coconut surprise flavor to give added kick. What is not to love in this recipe?
It will take a bit of time to make this recipe and time to allow the dish to cool. Refrigerate it as long as you can since the chilling will also improve flavor and texture for this special dessert. This dessert makes a perfect afternoon snack, after school treat, or can even been served to whomever drops by at lunch or for dinner. It is a great all-round recipe for multiple purposes. The recipe does call for dark brown sugar in the recipe. Sometimes it can be difficult to source dark brown sugar, so if you find it, buy plenty. You can likely substitute light brown sugar, but there is a flavor trade off. The difference between light and brown sugars is surprising. Still, if you cannot find the dark, do not hesitate to use the light brown in its stead.
This is a great dessert that can easily be made ahead a day or two and still retain—and probably improve—with time in the fridge. Enjoy!Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Lovely Little Kitchen, by following the link below.
