Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. To make the crust, combine the oats, almond flour, coconut sugar, arrowroot flour and salt in a food processor. Pulse until the oats are finely ground. Add the aquafaba and coconut oil. Pulse until crumbly.
  3. Line a square baking dish with parchment paper. Transfer ⅔ of the crust mixture to the dish and press into an even layer with your fingers, extending all the way to the corners. Reserve the remaining crust mixture to crumble on top.
  4. To make the filling, add the apples, lemon juice, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, cinnamon, arrowroot flour, salt and nutmeg to a large mixing bowl. Toss until evenly coated. Transfer to the baking dish, pressing into an even layer on top of the crust. Sprinkle the remaining crust mixture on top to cover.
  5. Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown, covering with aluminum foil if needed to prevent it from burning. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, then chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour firm up, making it easier to cut into. When ready to serve, remove the bars from the dish by lifting up by the parchment paper. Cut into 12 even squares. Top with coconut whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or serve as is.
  6. Apple Pie Bars can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for a few months.
