Baklava Cheesecake Bars

What is it about cheesecake that makes people go cuckoo over it. Whenever we go out to eat with our little sister, it is guaranteed, without fail that she will order a cheesecake for dessert. We once asked her why this was, and she said she just couldn't help it, whenever there's cheesecake it automatically trumps every other dessert surrounding it, is what she explained.

Well, we didn't have the right pan to make a cheesecake cheesecake, but we did make cheesecake bars! This way it's a small portion of an incredibly rich dessert that just feels like you're eating a snack. We added stevia and reduced some of the honey to make them a bit healthier. Remember cream cheese, greek yogurt and eggs all have lots of protein to balance out the glycemic index, so you won't get horrible sugar highs with this cheesecake!

These were honestly so deliciously creamy, we ended up making them twice. If you're a fan of baklava then you will really love these! Splurge on some good quality honey instead of billy bee, you'll really taste the difference in these.

 Drizzle honey and top with walnuts!

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup spelt flour
2 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey

1/3 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup good quality honey
1 tsp lemon juice
8 oz cream cheese
1 egg
2 tbsp egg whites
Stevia to taste
Pinch of salt

Combine crust ingredients, press into a small cake pan (9 X 9). Bake for about 8 minutes on 350F or until golden. Take out of oven, layer chopped walnuts and drizzled honey on the bottom, then pour in cream cheese mixture. Bake for another 30 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes in fridge, or ideally overnight. And there you have it! Drizzle with more honey and top with more walnuts.
