Eat, Recipes

If you follow a number of food accounts on Instagram, there is a GOOD chance that you’ve been seeing these “Cheesecake” Bars all over your feed. Created by wonderful @dani_nemeh, these bars are not only tasty but are also vegan, gluten-free… I mean does it get any better than that? 

The recipe lends itself to a lot of experimentation and creativity, so here’s my version of her bars made with PITAYA!
