How to Make Gluten-Free Oreo Cheesecake Bars

This next level gluten-free dessert is an incredibly easy recipe to whip up!

You will need just 8 ingredients:

gluten-free Oreo cookies (1 package which will be divided between the crust and cheesecake layer)

butter or dairy free butter

cream cheese or dairy free cream cheese

sugar

sour cream or dairy-free sour cream

vanilla

salt

eggs

 

Step by Step How to Make the Gluten-Free Oreo Cheesecake Bars

The first thing to do is make the Oreo crust.

It is just 3 simple steps:

  1. Pulse the Oreos in a food processor until they are fine crumbs.
  2. Add melted butter and process again until all the crumbs are moist.
  3. Press the moist Oreo crumbs into a prepared baking pan and bake just 10 minutes.

Baking tip: Line the pan with parchment paper and tuck the edges into the side while baking. This makes it easy to lift the parchment paper out of the paper and cut the cheesecake bars when they are ready to be served.

While the crust bakes, make the cheesecake filling.

The cheesecake batter comes together in about 5 minutes and 5 simple steps:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the softened cream cheese using a stand or hand mixer until creamy.
  2. Add sugar and mix again until very soft and creamy, about 1 minute.
  3. Add sour cream, vanilla and salt and again, mix to combine well. Mixture will be thick and creamy
  4. Then add in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well and scraping down the sides as needed.
  5. Stir in broken Oreos.

Recipe Tip: For the broken Oreo pieces, both in mixed into the batter and for topping, I break the Oreos by hand. That way you can control the size of the pieces and you can get large pieces which I personally like.

Pour the batter onto the baked Oreo crust.

Top with more Oreos and bake!

Baking Tips:

  • The bars bake in just 35 minutes but I like to check them at 25 minutes and if the top is starting to get golden (which in my oven it usually is!), cover loosely with foil and continue cooking.
  • You do not want to overcook the bars. When they are done, the cheesecake will be set on the outside, ever so slightly jiggly in the center if you shake the pan.
  • Let cool completely in the pan, then chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or longer.
  • Lift the parchment paper out of the pan, cut into bars and enjoy!

How good do these look?

The bars are the perfect mix of creamy, tangy cheesecake and bites of crunchy Oreos with burst of that cookie and cream flavor!

Everyone will rave about them!

Ingredients

Oreo Crust

  • 20 gluten-free Oreos cookies * *Note: you will need 1 12.08oz package of Gluten-Free Oreos in total, divided between the crust and cheesecake layer.
  • 3 tablespoons butter or dairy-free butter, melted

Cheesecake Layer

  • 2 8oz cream cheese or dairy-free cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup sugar
  • cup sour cream or dairy-free sour cream, room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 10 Oreos, crushed (4 should be saved for the topping) I break these with my hand so that I have larger and smaller pieces.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper so that the edges hang over or are tucked into the the pan. Set aside.
  • Make the Oreo crust: Using a food processor, add the Oreos and process until all the Oreos are crushed into fine crumbs -- this takes 1-2 minutes. Add melted butter and pulse to combine to that all the Oreo crumbs are "moist". Transfer the Oreo mix to the prepared baking pan and using your hands, press firmly and evenly into the pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • Make the cheesecake: While the crust bakes, add cream cheese to a large mixing bowl and using a electric stand or hand mixer, blend until smooth and creamy. Add sugar and mix again until very smooth, about 1 minute.
  • Add sour cream, salt and vanilla and mix until well combined.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating each one and scraping down the sides as needed. Mix on medium for about 1 minute.
  • Add the crushed Oreos, reserving some (I reserve about 4) for the top.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, checking at 25 minutes and if the top is starting to turn golden, cover loosely with foil and continue baking. When they are done, the cheesecake will be set on the outside, ever so slightly jiggly in the center if you shake the pan.
  • Remove from oven and let cool completely in the pan. Cover pan loosely with wax paper and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
  • Gently lift the parchment paper and Oreo cheesecake bars from the pan. Gently pull parchment paper away from the sides and cut into 16 squares. Enjoy!
  • Store covered or in a sealed container in the refrigerator for several days.
