Makeover Monday ~ Snicker-Doodle Cheesecake Bars

image_pdfimage_print

It is Monday, so it is time for another recipe makeover. I love to take favorite recipes and make them THM friendly. One of the biggest hurdles people have to overcome is thinking that healthy eating means never having their favorite foods again. The truth is that you can make a healthy version of almost any meal. And most meals don’t require that much work to re-make!

I have always loved Snicker-Doodles! I also really love cheesecake! That means these bars have got to be fantastic! The original recipe can be found at Delish.

Snicker-Doodle Cheesecake Bars ~ THM S

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CHEESECAKE LAYER

FOR THE SNICKER-DOODLE LAYER

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350º and grease a 9″-x-13″ baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare cheesecake layer: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and gentle sweet until fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt and beat until combined.
  3. Prepare snicker-doodle layer: In a medium bowl, whisk together baking blend, oat fiber, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In a large bowl, beat butter, gentle sweet and molasses with a hand mixer until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until just combined. Gradually add dry mixture and mix on low until just combined.
  4. Press about two-thirds of the snicker-doodle dough into an even layer in the bottom of the pan and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon/gentle sweet mixture.
