Banana Cheesecake Bars with Golden Oreo Crust

Author Dorothy Kern

Ingredients

  • 25 Golden Oreos
  • 6 tablespoons butter melted
  • 8 ounces cream cheese I use low-fat, room temperature
  • 1 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt or you can use vanilla, room temperature
  • 2 medium bananas or 1 large, peeled (it's best if it's a "tired" or brown spotted banana, but not too spotty!)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1-3.4 ounce size box instant banana pudding
  • Caramel ice cream topping for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9x9” pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  • Crush Golden Oreos in a food processor until they are a fine crumb. Mix with melted butter and press into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  • Beat cream cheese, banana, and yogurt with a stand mixer until smooth. Beat in sugar, vanilla, eggs, and flour. Stir in pudding.
  • Pour cheesecake mixture over prepared crust. Bake for 33-35 minutes, until the edges turn golden. It will still jiggle a little in the center, but it will set as it cools. Cool to room temperature on the counter, and then chill until set, overnight (or at least 4 hours). Slice into bars and serve with caramel sauce and/or whipped cream.
