Healthy Strawberry Cheesecake Bars

HEALTHY_CHEESECAKEGluten Free, Sugar Free, Yummy Strawberry Cheesecake

Before you jump to the ingredients to see if you have them on hand. you probably do not have brown rice cereal flakes or gelatin sheets. These are not in most pantries unless you’ve been eating gluten free.

But hey, HEALTHY cheesecake! It will be worth it.

Eat it for breakfast! I love making desserts with medjool dates and this recipe works beautifully. This  recipe is an adaptation from the original recipe by Honey & Figs by Consuelo, Visit her site for lots of yummy, healthy recipes.
