Clean Eating Strawberry Cheesecake Bars


For the crust

  • 12 medjool dates
  • 100 grams brown rice cereal flakes 1 + 1/2 cup
  • 25 grams toasted hazelnuts 1/8 cup
  • 25 grams coconut oil 2 tablespoons

For the cheesecake

  • 750 grams low sodium fat free cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 60 grams raw honey 3 tablespoons
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • 10 gelatin sheets + 3 tablespoons boiling water


  • 100 grams fresh strawberries


Start by making the crust

  • Soak pitted dates in water for 10 minutes.
  • Add them to a food processor without the soaking water and pulse until broken.
  • Add in cereal flakes and hazelnuts and pulse until a ball of dough is formed.
  • Stir in melted coconut oil and pulse until incorporated to the ball.
  • Line a baking pan with parchment paper and press crust until it covers the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

For the cheesecake

  • Soak gelatine sheets in cold water for 10 minutes. You can make this while you’re preparing the crust if you want.
  • Add cottage cheese to a food processor and puree until smooth and creamy.
  • Stir in honey, cinnamon and vanilla and pulse until combined.
  • Make sure that this mixture is not cold. If it is, nuke it for 30 seconds or so, but not longer or it might curdle!
  • Squeeze excess water from the gelatine sheets and disolve them in 3 tablespoons water. Whisk until this water + gelatine mixture is lump free. If you still have lumps, nuke it for 30 seconds until they are 100% dissolved.
  • Stir in water mixture into the cheese one and whisk until fully combined. Make sure you mix really really well!
  • Pour mixture on your prepared pan and leave in the fridge to set for at least 6 hours or better yet, overnight.


My bars set in 3 hours… but if I were you I would let them chill for longer, just in case!These keep`well for days in the fridge, and can be frozen as well.You can get unsweetened cereal flakes in most health-food stores. If you use sweetened, that’s fine as well. For gluten-free bars, use a gluten-free brand.Cornflakes would work too.Butter or Earth Balance work well in place of coconut oil if you don’t have it.
