Key-Lime Cheesecake Bars

This super-simple and delicious cheesecake has an unsuspecting ingredient–avocado. But don’t worry, you can’t taste it! :)

Crust:

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup coconut, shredded or flaked
2 Tbs sucanat (or brown sugar)
1 Tbs maple syrup
1/4 tsp salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and mix until combined. (There should still be small chunks of almonds.) Lightly grease the bottom of an 8″ by 8″ baking dish, and press the crust into the pan. Bake at 350 for 6-8 minutes. The crust will harden as it cools, so be careful not to overcook. Let cool.

Filling:

1 ripe avocado, peeled and cut into quarters
1/2 cup lime juice (juice from 3 limes)
12 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup honey granules (or sugar)

Combine the avocado and lime juice in a food processor and mix until smooth. Add the cream cheese and honey granules and blend. Pour over cooled crust and chill. For best consistency, refrigerate for at least a day before serving. Cut into squares and enjoy!
