Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Our relationship with food is meant to be symbiotic, with the gifts of nature providing us with the nutrients our bodies need. So many of us are drawn to sweet foods and compromise health and well-being by ingesting sugars and processed toxins; however, nature provides us with so much sweetness, meaning that you can meet your cravings while still receiving so many benefits to your physical and energetic systems. With the antioxidant glory of blueberries and the nutrient richness of honey, dates and coconut oil, these divine vegan cheesecake bars allow you to indulge in the inherent deliciousness that Mother Earth provides.
