How to make these raspberry swirl cheesecake bars
I made the crispy crust out of oat flakes, mashed banana, and a pinch of salt.
Once the crust is baked to golden brown I added the silky cheese base. To make the cheese part, I added tofu, dates, and vanilla extract to a blender and blended it until smooth.
And back to the oven again for 30 min to get firm yet smooth and delicious cheesecake bars.
Finally a swirl of fresh raspberry purée to finish it off.
