Honey Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Last month I did a Whole 30 when I went without sugar, grain, and a bunch of other foods. I’ve discovered that as much as I love sweets, I don’t think that sweets take very good care of me. Sure, they taste good, but they make me tired.

Since then, I’ve been thinking and scheming of ways to curb the sweets that my family eats. I’m nowhere close to arriving. Hello! We just had Easter and my famous Lemon Meringue Pie.

But, I’m working on it.

These Honey Lemon Cheesecake Bars are a step in the right direction. While they do contain graham cracker crumbs, the filling is sweetened only with honey. I call that a win. Serve the bars with fresh fruit to up the ante a bit. We used cherries.

  1. It looks good. If it is sweetened with honey, that is still a fast acting carbohydrate so that would make you tired just as sugar does for you so how would this be better? I am trying to understand how honey makes it better. My son loves honey products so I know he would like the flavor.

    • Honey is not as processed, and it is not as hard on the body as white/ brown sugar. As the Bible says, too much honey isn’t good (: but we’ve replaced white and brown sugar with honey and stevia in our home with great results in how we feel after eating dessert and sweet snacks.

    • For myself, I process honey totally differently than sugar. Sugar exhausts me, while honey gives me energy. You shouldn’t overdo it, but honey can be a great once in awhile treat!

  2. Thank you so much. We eat honey as our only sugar product so this rocks. To make it grain free I used coconut flour and replaced the graham crackers with almond meal. Yum!

  3. Oh man! I wish I had seen this yesterday. I was looking for a cheesecake bar recipe. The one I ended up didn’t making didn’t set right. I’m pinning this so I will have it for next time.
