Gluten Free Carrot Cake Cheesecake Bars are the perfect Easter, spring or even Thanksgiving cheesecake dessert! This cake bar is a delicious combination of carrot cake and cheesecake all in one! With a 1-to-1 gluten free flour, they are easy and simple to make as well!
Cheesecake bars are one of those desserts that are impossible to resist. This combination of delicious carrot cake and flavors of a classic cheesecake recipe create a dessert that is perfect for any holiday or when your sweet tooth has a craving.
Gluten free baking can sometimes be a challenge and it is something I shied away from until I discovered 1-to-1 gluten free flour. It takes all the guess work out of baking gluten free desserts since it perfectly formulated for baked goods and works as a 1-to-1 replacement for traditional flour.
One of the key things to remember when making these cheesecake bars is to bring your ingredients to room temperature. That allows everything to mix better and results in an overall better quality carrot cheesecake.
No one will ever guess that these delicious cheesecake bars are gluten free but everyone will be begging for the recipe! I took some to my office the day after I made them and everyone was instantly in love. I know my friends will be excited to discover a delicious gluten free cheesecake option too.
If you want to make these and are not worried about gluten, you can easily use regular flour. However, to keep them gluten free, be sure to get a 1-to-1 gluten free flour.
