Gluten Free Apple Pie Bars

healthy | dairy free | vegan

buttery soft apple pie filling scented with cinnamon on a shortbread crust with streusel topping all drizzled with caramel for a decadent but healthy treat made without processed ingredients.

step 1

Start by preheating the oven, then mix together the dry ingredients for the crust/streusel mixture, and add the wet ingredients.

step 2

Pat out 2/3 of the crust/ streusel mixture into an 11″x7″ baking pan. I like to line mine with 2 strips of parchment paper so I can slide the bars out later. You can also grease the pan well and press the crust right into the pan.

step 3

Make the apple pie filling by mixing together the orange juice mixture to pour over the apple slices and toss them to combine.

step 4

Layer the apple slices over the shortbread crust and pour any extra juices over the top.

step 5

Crumble the remaining 1/3 of the crumble topping mixture over the top. Bake until the crust is golden brown, and the apple slices are tender and bubbling around the edges.

step 6

Let cool, slice and enjoy drizzled with caramel and topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

3 key tips
