Summer is the perfect time for strawberries, which coincidentally, is the ideal time for this cake. Made with fresh strawberries, sweet, frozen cream and crunchy Nature Valley™ granola bars, look no further for the ultimate summer sweet.MORE+LESS-
box Nature Valley™ Crunchy Granola Bars Oats and Honey (6 2-bar pouches)
tablespoons brown sugar
tablespoons melted butter
cup heavy whipping cream
oz cream cheese, softened
cups freshly chopped strawberries
Preheat oven to 350°F. Put the Nature Valley™ granola bars in a food processor and process until you achieve a fine crumb. Reserve half of the crumbs (about 3/4 cup) for topping.
In a large bowl, combine remaining crumbs with the brown sugar, flour and melted butter. Spread crumb mixture into an 8x8-inch baking dish that has been covered with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 10 minutes. Let cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine eggs whites and sugar and mix on high. Add the heavy cream and continue mixing for another 5 minutes.
In another bowl, mix squeezed lemon juice and softened cream cheese. Mix on low speed until incorporated. Add heavy cream mixture.
Fold the fresh strawberries into the cream mixture.
In a buttered glass dish, press the butter-crumb crust mixture on the bottom. Top with strawberry mix and then add the reserved granola crumbs to the top.
Cover and freeze for three hours or more and enjoy!
- Cut bars before completely frozen - about 1-1/2 hours in the freezer.
