Small Batch No Bake Cheesecake Bars
These small batch no bake cheesecake bars are the perfect summer treat! The cheesecake bars start with a crunchy, addicting graham cracker crust that is topped with a light and creamy cheese cake filling. The filling is made with lots of whipped cream, cream cheese, and just a touch of sour cream. Because its so light and airy, it almost tastes like cream cheese mousse! Top it off with your favorite seasonal fruits for a refreshing summer time snack.
Why You Should Make Small Batch No Bake Cheesecake Bars
In addition to being extremely delicious, here are all the reasons why you should make this no bake cheesecake bar recipe:
This no bake cheesecake bar recipe is very small batch.
Most cheesecake bar recipes instruct you to bake them in either a 9 x 13-inch cake pan, or a 8-inch square cake pan. However, since many of us are still avoiding large gatherings, I decided to make a very small batch version of a traditional no bake cheesecake bar recipe. What does that mean? These no bake cheesecake bars are made in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan, resulting in a serving size approximately a quarter of the size of other recipes. That means 8 petite servings (or 2 generous ones). It’s the perfect amount for a small household!
This recipe for small batch cheesecake bars are “no bake” and don’t require you to turn on your oven.
I don’t know about you guys, but it takes a LOT to convince me to turn on my oven in the middle of a scorching summer. Luckily, there’s no need to do so with this cheesecake bar recipe. The recipe is “no bake”! All you need to do are chill the cheesecake bars in the refrigerator. It’s the perfect summer time treat.
This small batch no bake cheesecake bars recipe comes together really, quickly.
Because you don’t need to bake the cheesecake bars, they come together in a flash. It takes about 15 minutes to make both the crust and the cheesecake filling. The most time-consuming part is waiting for the cheesecake bars to set in the refrigerator.
This small batch no bake cheesecake bar recipe is easily customizable.
These no bake cheesecake bars are made with ingredients that are easily substitutable. Not a fan of graham crackers? Replace them with speculoos or Oreo cookies instead. No sour cream in the house? No problem! Use crème fraîche or Greek yogurt instead. The fun part? You can customize the bars with different flavors like vanilla and lemon, and top them with the fresh, seasonal fruit of your choice. You do you.

NO TIME TO BAKE?!
Over the past several years of running Hummingbird High, I kept a crucial aspect of my life hidden from my readers: I had a full-time, extremely demanding job in the tech world. In my debut cookbook, Weeknight Baking, I finally reveal the secrets to baking delicious desserts on a tight schedule.
