Healthy, gluten free apple crumble bars made vegan with dates & coconut oil. These snack bars are low in added sugar, with just a little coconut sugar.
• I did indeed weigh the dough for you. If you're a baking perfectionist, I've got you covered.
• If the apple filling is still warm when you're blending it, make sure you have the vent open (on a food processor at least) to keep it from getting really hot.
• As I mentioned above, you can substitute pre-made apple butter for the filling instead of making it from scratch (not apple sauce, it'll be too thin) and save a good bit of time.
* If your dates are dry, soak them in hot water for half an hour first.
** I always like to use fresh nutmeg. It's more cost effective, lasts longer, and tastes much better.
*** Try to use a tart apple without a very high moisture content. I used boskopf apples. **** For the filling the dates can be quite hard and dry because you're cooking them in any case.
