Fall is peeking around the corner and all I want to do is light all my fall candles and bake. In my opinion, fall is the best time of the year and always brings with it amazing food and smells. My new Paleo Apple Crumble Bars are out of this world amazing. They are sticky, sweet and the perfect fall dessert.
The crust is fabulous and is my go to crust for all my baking needs. You seriously won’t even believe it is gluten free and Paleo and can even be tailored to Keto. I mix almond flour, pecans, maple syrup, arrowroot, salt, vanilla and ghee. It might seem super simple, but it is seriously so dang good. If you want to make this keto, simply remove the maple syrup and use monk fruit syrup, that is keto compliant.
The apple filling for these bars is so simple, yet full of flavor. It is only peeled apples, maple syrup, coconut sugar, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and lemon juice. To thicken the filling, I used arrowroot flour and it gave it the perfect gooey consistency.
My favorite part of this recipe is the crumble top. It gives the bars the perfect texture and crunch. I used pecans, salt, cinnamon almond flour and maple syrup and combined using a food processor. In addition to this recipe, I also like using this crumble recipe to add to yogurt or smoothie bowls. It. Is. So. GOOD!!!
Serving warm with dairy free ice cream makes this the perfect fall recipe and even an amazing Thanksgiving dessert. I have an amazing dairy free vanilla bean ice cream recipe if you are looking. Click Here to grab it.
How long can you store these Paleo Apple Crumble Bars?
Probably not long because you will be tempted to eat them all in one sitting. If you have will power you can store these in aluminum foil or an air tight container for up to 2 weeks. You can add to the fridge or even leave them out at room temperature. I recommend heating up in the microwave for 30 seconds before serving. It taste pretty close to warm apple pie!!!
Can you make these Apple Crumble Bars Keto compliant?
Apple is pretty high in carbs, so it isn’t really doable to create this recipe to fit perfectly in the Keto framework. However, if you are looking to make this lower sugar, feel free to swap out for low carb and low sugar sweeteners of choice. Below are my favorite all natural sweeteners low in sugar.
