Apple Bars (Paleo/Primal)

‘Tis the season for apples…and apple recipes!! My grandma makes the best apple bars and I have missed them. So I decided to try and make Paleo Apple Bars yesterday. Much to my delight they turned out! They aren’t quite as flaky as Grandma’s apple bars, but they are yummy! (The same cannot be said about my first attempt at apple crisp without grains or refined sugars…)

Apple Bars

Crust Ingredients:
3/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
3/4 cup almonds, finely chopped
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup coconut flour
6 Tbsp. arrowroot
3/4 cup coconut oil or butter (cold)
6 eggs (1 egg separated)
1/4 cup honey

Filling Ingredients:
peeled and sliced apples
3/4 cup honey
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Glaze Ingredients:
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Combine dry ingredients for the crust in a large bowl.
3. Cut in cold butter or coconut oil with pastry blender.
4. Mix 5 whole eggs and one egg yolk with honey.
5. Add to egg mixture to flour mixture and mix until combined (I used a fork and my hands).
6. Roll out 1/2 of crust between two pieces of parchment paper and put in a greased 10×15 pan.
7. Put sliced apples on top of crust. (I put a few layers of apples on mine.)
8. Drizzle honey over the top of the apples and sprinkle with cinnamon.
9. Roll out the other crust between two pieces of parchment paper and place on top of apples.
10. Brush the top crust with the egg white.
11. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes and then 325 for 15-20 minutes.

Frosting/drizzle:
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 Tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. vanilla

1. Whip ingredients together and spread on top of bars. (If you do it while they are slightly warm still, it will melt and be more like a glaze.)
