In fall, everybody is excited about pumpkins, grapes, and pomegranates, but I’m all about apples!
Here is a delicious and very easy-to-make apple crumble bar recipe that’s completely vegan and gluten-free. If you have gluten intolerance, remember to use gluten-free oats. Sometimes, oats can be gluten cross-contaminated.
What makes these yummy apple bars very easy to prepare is that I am baking the crust, the apples and the crumble topping all at once! If you want your apples to be super soft, you can pre-cook them a little bit. However, I don’t find this necessary, and I like it when apples have a little bit of texture.
As always, you can use any nut butter, plant-based milk, and sweetener of your choice. The sweetener I used to make the crust was maple syrup, and I added some coconut sugar to the apple filling. I also used coconut milk and tahini to make these apple bars.
If you don’t want to use desiccated coconut for the crust, use some more oat flour instead.
