Servings 9


Crust / Topping

  • 3/4 c butter softened
  • 1 3/4 c oatmeal
  • 1 1/2 c flour
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 1 c brown sugar


  • 2 1/2 c apples peeled, sliced
  • 2 T butter melted
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 1 t cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees and grease 9x9 baking dish with coconut oil or cooking spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine softened butter with oatmeal. Using a pastry blender (or knife and fork), cut the butter into the rolled oats until small (pea-sized) crumbles begin to form.

  3. Slowly add in other crust/topping ingredients, continuing to cut the mixture into crumbles.

  4. In a medium bowl, mix together filling ingredients.

  5. Pour half of the crust/topping crumbles into the baking dish. Using a fork, press crumbles until packed tightly into the bottom of the dish.

  6. Spread filling evenly over crust.

  7. Pour the remaining half of the crust/topping crumbles over the filling. Similarly to the crust, using a fork, press crumbles until tightly packed.

  8. Bake for 30 minutes.

  9. Allow bars to cool before cutting, but may be served warm.
