Ingredients

FOR THE BARS:

  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 2 cups Pazazz apples(or Honeycrisp) (this is about 3 medium sized apples diced into small pieces)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot or cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper.
  • The first step is to make the base.
  • In your food processor, blend the oats until they become a flour.
  • Add the almond flour and sea salt to the blender, followed by the remaining ingredients for the bars.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture (that is going to be your crumble topping!), and press the remaining mixture evenly into the baking dish.
  • Then, move on to making the apple filling.
  • In a pan on the stove over low heat, add coconut oil.
  • Once the oil has melted, add the apples, maple syrup, and cinnamon.
  • Sauté for about 3-5 minutes.
  • While the apples are cooking, add the arrowroot/cornstarch to a small bowl, along with 2 tbsp water.
  • Whisk until there are no clumps.
  • Then pour it into the apple mixture.
  • After about 2 minutes, remove from heat, cover, and let sit for about 5 minutes, to allow to thicken.
  • Pour apple mixture on top of the cookie base.
  • Sprinkle remaining oat mixture on top.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Let cool completely before slicing into squares so that the bars stay intact!
    Enjoy!!!
