Who doesnt love blueberries? They remind us of childhood picnics for Fourth of July and family breakfasts at the diner. So its a no-brainer to add them to a perennial favorite like cheesecake. Our Blueberry Cheesecake Bars are fuss-free, and nobody will guess theyre on the lighter side.

What You'll Need

  • 2/3 cup ground walnuts
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat butter, melted
  • 1 (8-ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons blueberry preserves
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, combine walnuts, graham cracker crumbs, rolled oats, 2 tablespoons sugar, and melted butter. Press mixture into bottom of prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake 9 to 11 minutes, or until set and edges are lightly browned; cool on wire rack.
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/3 cup sugar until smooth. Beat in orange juice and vanilla; fold in whipped topping. Spread over crust.

to Jtstours57 -- check on the Splenda website.

Can Splenda be substituted for the sugar?

Hi there! - We haven't tested this recipe using Splenda, but we believe that it should work fine. Please let us know how it turns out for you. Enjoy!

This is a fabulous recipe, especially the crust!!! I will use the crust for some of my other recipes too. I did not use exclusively blueberries. I had a frozen mixture of a berry blend containing strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, red raspberries, dark sweet cherries, and red tart cherries and it turned out FABULOUS!! I dont even miss my peanut better eggs (you know the Reeses pb eggs)!!!!
