I love baking year round but there’s something special about baking in the fall.  It’s extra cozy due to the cooler temperatures out and I love using fresh apples.  These apple pie bars are everything you love about apple pie in bar form.  A thick shortbread layer is topped with cinnamon apples and then a crumbly topping completes it.  These are super easy but super delicious!  Let’s get baking!

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Course: Dessert, Snack
Servings: 9 bars



Shortbread Layer:
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
3 TBL honey
1/2 tsp vanilla

Apple Layer:
2.5 cups apples, chopped
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 TBL coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
Dash nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350.  Line a 9×9 glass pan with parchment paper.

Make shortbread layer first.  Add ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix until combined.  Spread 3/4 of this mixture into pan and bake for 9-11 minutes.

While the shortbread layer bakes, make the apple layer.  Add all ingredients to a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Let cook for 10 minutes, stirring.  Apples should become soft.

Let shortbread layer cool for 5-10 minutes then pour apple mixture on top.

Crumble remaining shortbread layer on top of apples.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until just golden on top.

Let cool completely before serving.  Store in the fridge.
