These No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Bars take just 5 ingredients and about 10 minutes to put together. Let them set in the freezer, and then voila! A sugar free, grain free treat even the kids will go crazy over is ready.

How to Make No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Bars

Step 1: Add the Vanilla Bean Cake Mix into a frying pan, and stir it over medium heat for about 5 minutes to toast the mix. The mix should just start to turn light brown in places.

Step 2: Add the cream cheese to a mixing bowl, a use a hand mixer to whip it until it’s light and fluffy.

Step 1 shows toasting the cake mix in a frying pan, and step 2 shows whipping the cream cheese in a bowl.

Step 3: Add the toasted and slightly cooled cake mix into the bowl with the cream cheese, and stir them together.

Step 4: Add the freeze dried strawberries to the dough, and use a spatula to mix them in. We like to crush some to make the dough speckled with strawberry flavor. If you’re strict keto, you’ll want to use a smaller amount of strawberries in your batter.

Step 3 shows mixing the cake mix into the cream cheese.

Step 5: Press the dough into a lined 8×8 baking dish. We use a pastry roller to compress it and get a nice even top. Freeze the base for 2-3 hours. This sets the cheesecake base so when the white chocolate layer is poured on, it sets quickly.

Step 6: Melt the white chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave or using a double boiler on your stovetop. White chocolate burns even faster than regular chocolate, so watch it closely and melt it slowly. Drizzle the white chocolate over the top of the cheesecake base, and use a spatula to spread it out in an even layer.

Step 5 shows pressing the cheesecake dough into the pan, and step 6 shows topping it with melted white chocolate.

Step 7: Before the white chocolate sets, sprinkle the top with additional freeze dried strawberries, if desired. Skip this step if you need to keep the bars lower in carbs.

Step 8: If your cheesecake base is frozen, the white chocolate will softly set on top of the bars in about 10 minutes. This will allow you to cut the bars without the white chocolate cracking. If you chill the bars prior to cutting them, the white chocolate will crack.

Freeze the bars and pull them out when ready to enjoy! These are best served chilled.

Notes

These bars have 15g NET CARBS per bar as written. This takes into account 7 grams of sugar alcohols (in the Vanilla Bean Cake Mix) and 5 grams of fiber.
Reducing the freeze dried strawberries to 1/4 cup and the white chocolate to 1/2 cup further reduces the NET CARBS to 8g.
Variations:
  • Add cinnamon, ginger, or almond extract to the base to give them an extra flavor boost
  • Try Dark Chocolate instead of white chocolate as the coating, if that’s more your style!
  • Make them blueberry or raspberry cheesecake bars by using freeze dried blueberries or raspberries instead of strawberries.
  • Make them vanilla bean cheesecake bars by omitting the fruit altogether!
