PALEO APPLE PIE BARS
(GRAIN FREE, GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, PALEO)
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

Course: Dessert, Snack
Servings: 9 bars
1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
3 TBL honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
2.5 cups apples, chopped
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 TBL coconut oil
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
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.
