Preheat the oven to 325°F. Line an 11x7 inch rectangle baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
First, prepare the chocolate chip cookie base. Add flour, almonds, white sugar, brown sugar, softened butter, egg, salt, baking soda, vanilla extract, and maca powder to a food processor. Process until a completely smooth dough has been formed.
Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan. Working with your hands, flatten the surface as evenly as possible. Spread 18 oreos over the crust and set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine together cream cheese, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, and salt. Using a hand mixer fitted with whisking attachments, beat for 2-3 minutes on medium speed. Pour the mixture over oreos and finish with some more crushed oreos.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden on top and slightly jiggly in the center.
When done, remove from the oven and cool to room temperature. Transfer to the refrigerator and cool completely - at least 4 hours. Cut the cake into equal bars and optionally drizzle with salted caramel sauce. Serve.
Chocolate chip cookie dough combined with Oreos and delicious vanilla cream is probably everything you need for a perfect dessert nobody can resist. These decadent chocolate chip oreo cheesecake bars are made with classic chocolate chip cookie dough with just the right amount of Zen Spirit maca powder for the best flavor you have ever tasted.
A store-bought chocolate chip cookie dough will also work perfectly for this recipe and save you some time. In that case, add a pinch of maca powder to the cream cheese filling.
When it comes to baking these cheesecake bars, you want to keep an eye on them, especially at the end. The topping should be lightly golden (not brown) and the cheesecake filling should tremble in the center when shaken.
If you leave it in the oven for a longer period, the cheesecake filling will be too thick when chilled and you will lose that wonderful creamy texture these bars should have.
Finally, drizzle your bars with some salted caramel sauce (homemade or store-bought one – whatever works for you) and enjoy!
