Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars

I fully meant to post this recipe all the way back in July, but it’s better late than never! While it definitely feels out of season given it’s citrusy flavors, I personally believe you can’t go wrong with a little bit of lemon and blueberry no matter what the time of year.

This recipe was a huge hit at my house and I made it several times throughout the summer. It’s super easy and satisfies the sweet tooth just right.
