Gluten Free Apple Crumble Bars


These Gluten Free Apple Crumble Bars are the dream. If you like cake, biscuits or flapjacks you’re going to love these. They are perfect for times when our inner snack lover comes out!

The spiced apple layer in the middle is so warming – perfect for that winter 4pm snack. Oats are a great source of energy as they are slow burning so you’ll feel full until your next meal time.

Coconut sugar is a great source of natural sugar, so your blood sugar levels won’t spike and it tastes delicious!

If you’ve made my Gluten Free Apple Crumble Bars and fancy a change, why not try my Oat and Puffed Rice Granola Bars? They are so crunchy and can even be used as a breakfast cereal (almost like Weetabix) just add milk!

Ready in 65 minutes Good For


Preheat the oven to 180 C

Chop up 5 apples into tiny pieces removing the core, place in a pot with 20g of butter/coconut oil the zest of the orange, the juice, the honey and ½ tsp of cinnamon. Cook on low for 15 minutes.

While this is cooking mix the oats, coconut sugar, salt, baking powder, 100g coconut oil and ½ tsp of cinnamon together. Grab a small roasting tray line it with baking paper and pour half the mixture into it, push down you’re your fingers and place in the oven for 10 minutes until golden. Allow it to cool for 5 minutes then pour over the stewed apples. Top with the rest of the oat mix.

Thinly slice up the last apple and place it on top for decoration. Bake in the oven for a further 25 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool then place in the freezer for half an hour to set. Once cold, slice into bars and store in the fridge.

These are a great 4 pm snacks and last for a week in the fridge.
