Peach Cheesecake Bars

Fresh peaches top this amazingly fluffy, no bake cheesecake bar with a ground oat and graham cracker base. These No Bake Peach Cheesecake Bars scream summer in one tasty dessert. What’s even better is you don’t even need to turn on the oven!

I originally had the tart and tangy rhubarb in mind, but to be honest, if it’s not in a crisp or covered, it’s not the prettiest of fruits once cooked down and the bounty of fresh peaches I had on hand were next in line. I was not disappointed and I know you won’t be either.

I don’t know about you but with this heat wave happening there’s no way I was going to turn that oven on for dessert. So no bake was in order and cheesecake came to mind. And to me there’s no better crust than a graham cracker crust.

Kitchen Tip for the Crust

I’ll share a little kitchen hack I use to for making an even crust base. I make these in a 9×9 inch baking casserole dish, but use a smaller sized dish to press the crumb mixture. Just coat the bottom of an 8 inch baking casserole dish with plastic wrap and press the ground oat and graham cracker crumbs for even distribution. Even and easy.

Feel free to use your hands, but with one press you’re done and good to go.

I bet you’re thinking this has a food coloring in it, or I used some Photoshop trickery, but these peaches are this color and they are so good.

Thank you Mother Nature and summer stone fruits like nectarines or apricots would work just as well for this, too.

The cream cheese gets fluffed up and folded with whipped cream for a light and delicious cheesecake layer that tops the crust base.

Speaking of that crust base… man. The ground graham cracker and ground oat mixture is heaven. Just sweet enough and with a hint of cinnamon, optional of course, it is a perfect bar cookie or cheesecake bar. Whatever you want to call these you will be happy not to turn on the oven for one killer dessert.

  1. Made this recipe a couple of years ago using peaches and following exactly. It was delicious. We are in a different place and time now. I am no longer able to eat peaches. My husband loves cherry cheesecake and as we are also in cherry season, I made this again with a few modifications. Had shortbread cookie crumbs in the cupboard (is a standard, I make them and keep them to use in place of graham crackers). Made the filling just as directed, adding a dash of vanilla. Then chopped and macerated some cherries for the topping. I stored the filling in a quart storage container to set, and when ready to serve, served it deconstructed. Crumbs on the bottom a couple of scoops of filling and then macerated cherries on top. It came out delicious. I wanted to share that this filling can be used a variety of ways, and method can use a variety of fruits , and still be delicious. I do not think I will actually ever bother to bake a cheese cake again. (Oh, I doubled the filling as my big mixer could not beat a half cup of cream). Came out beautifully. This is a great base for jumping off into just about any version of cheesecake I would guess. My next try will be a chocolate one, I think. Thanks, Kevin.

    I just made this. It’s wonderful! My husband loved it, i loved it, my company loved it! I eye-balled almost all of the amounts (maybe this is why I’m a ‘cook’ but not a ‘baker’ lol). It had a nice balance of flavors
