The flavours in these Apple and Cinnamon Crumble Bars are the epitome of Autumn so what better time to upload the recipe to my website than at the start of the season. These bars give a nod to the classic crumble but make an ideal breakfast or snack on the go due to them being refined sugar free and made with ‘healthier’ ingredients.
When making these bars be sure to allow the apple mixture to completely cool before layering it between the crumble and baking. When you are cooking the apples over a low heat in the pan you may want to keep an eye on them and stir them ocassionally to ensure they do not burn. I have made these bars before using homemade chia jam and the chances are, if you like this apple version, then you will enjoy my Blackberry Crumble Bars too.
For this recipe you will need to use butter from a hard block rather than a spread. Ensure that you allow these bars to cool fully before removing them from the tray or slicing into them otherwise you risk them falling apart. I use a lined 8″ x 8″ brownie tray for these and it results in the perfect thin bake that I then cut into nine individual squares.
These bars are best eaten within two days, however, will last up to a week in an airtight container.
