Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars are a semi-homemade treat the whole family will love. Top them with a drizzle of chocolate sauce to make them extra special!

If you’ve been reading My Baking Addiction for any length of time, you’re probably well aware of the fact that I’m mildly obsessed with cheesecake – in any form. From No Bake S’mores Cheesecake and Baileys Irish Cream Cheesecake to Cherry Cheesecake Cookies, cheesecake will always be my favorite dessert in all the land.

Want to know what else I’m mildly obsessed with? Purchasing random products from the grocery store when they’re on sale.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars have a delicious cookie crust that make them incredibly delicious! Your guests will be begging you for this recipe!

Our main pantry (yes, we have two), needed some serious attention last week. The shelves were packed with holiday sprinkles and open packages of just about every baking chip you could imagine.

During this little clean-up, I also realized that I had seriously over-purchased those little pouches of Betty Crocker cookie mix during the holidays. What can I say? Clearly, I was feeling festive during that trip because no one truly needs 5 packages of gingerbread cookie mix.

I also had far too many pouches of sugar cookie and oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mixes. Most of which were packed up to deliver to the local food bank along with 4 ginormous cans of yams that I don’t remember buying, a portion of my canned pumpkin stash and loads of baking chips that I knew would expire before I could put them to use.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars have a delicious cookie crust that make them totally irresistible! You'll definitely want to make extra!

Last week, I decided to channel my inner Sandra Lee and whip up a semi-homemade cheesecake bar because a.) I wanted to start using up the cookie mix pouches I kept and b.) I was craving cheesecake.

I used the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie mix as a crust, followed by additional chocolate chips, because more is always more, and of course, a sweet and tangy layer of cheesecake. The results were pretty amazing. The oatmeal cookie crust was slightly crisp, but also a bit chewy making it the perfect match for the cheesecake. I even went a little overboard and topped some of the bars with chocolate sauce, but I think macerated strawberries would be even more amazing.

This Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars recipe is super simple to throw together and sure to be a huge hit for just about any occasion!

      The amount of sprinkles I have is mildly embarrassing. Thanks so much for stopping by, Kristan!

  3. Hey Jamie – I don’t think there would BE any leftovers of these delicious cheesecake bars to store in the fridge at my house.  You’ve also inspired me to clean out my messy pantry today. Thanks. (I think.) :)

    Wow!! just printed the recipe…looks so easy…Sandra Lee is my style …now to get my chocolate drizzle art to look just as good! If not the strawberry thinly sliced will work. Have a great week.

      I think they’ll be delicious either way, Monica! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    This looks delicious!!! By chance can you provide nutritional information??


    • Jamie — April 13, 2016 at 8:40 am

      I don’t provide nutritional information; however, there are several online calculators that should help with calculations. Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Lindsay, could you recommend any of your recipes as a replacement for the crust? I don’t like to much ingredientes of betty crockers, and I thought to make a base from the beginning. I am not sure if I can simply go for any of your no bake bars – originally they are not meant to be baked. Or maybe adding an egg would solve the problem?


    • Jamie — April 13, 2016 at 11:20 am

      I think you could use your favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and turn into bars for the base. I hope this helps.

    Hi Jamie ..

    I am really fond of ur recipes … and wish to try them the very moment I read … but then comes the tricky part … the Eggs …. please guide me with some EGGLESS recipes. ..

    Good wishes. :)


    • Jamie — April 23, 2016 at 11:19 am

      Hi, Navdeep! You can substitute several things for an egg in baking: 1/4 cup applesauce; 1 mashed banana; or 1 teaspoon baking soda mixed with 1 tablespoon white vinegar. I hope this helps!

    Hey Jamie – These look absolutely stunning! One question, is it possible to substitute the heavy cream with half and half cream? This would definitely help with my diet!


    • Jamie — May 11, 2016 at 4:29 pm

      Hi, Lynda! I’m concerned the half and half won’t whip as well as the heavy whipping cream. But I think you should still give it a go–you deserve a treat!

  9. dhara — June 7, 2016 at 1:47 am

    what ican be the substitute for egg… since i am vegetarian… ty

    Look delicious. I love cheesecake, too. Great stuff, but I’m elderly and on a low fixed income. Wish I could afford to make these. Love to look, though. Thank you for posting.


    • Jamie — August 16, 2016 at 11:35 am

      You’re welcome, Pamela. All the best to you!
