Make your own sauce, or purchase an organic apple sauce at the store.
ā”ļøĀ Rachel’s tips:
I usually make my own coconut butter because it’s far more economical than buying jars at the store.
Simply grab a bag of organic shredded coconut (let’s do organic brand) then pulse it in your food processor adding in 2 Tablespoons of unrefined coconut oil, and pulse until you have butter.
Makes about 9 servings Ingredients:
DRY: 1 1/2 cups almond flour
1 cup oat flour
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 large egg, room temp
1/4 cup unrefined melted coconut oil
1/3 cup raw honey, or pure maple syrup
1 1/4 cup apple sauce
1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup natural creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch of sea salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees f. and line an 8×10 rimmed baking pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk to combine all dry ingredients. In a second bowl, add all wet ingredients and whisk until thoroughly combined. Pour the wet over the dry ingredients and whisk to combine everything well.Ā Add in any extras if desired (dried fruits and chopped nuts of choice), and using a silicone spatula, stir to incorporate the into the batter.Scoop your batter into the prepared baking pan and spread evenly. Place into the oven and bake for 33-35 minutes, or until golden-brown. Allow it to cool on a wire rack while making your frosting.In a food processor add the peanut butter, coconut butter, maple syrup, vanilla, salt, and then pulse a few times, until smooth.Evenly and gently spread your creamy peanut butter frosting over your cooled apple bars. You might need to use an angled pastry spatula to get into those corners.Slice into bars and serve. Store any leftovers in your refrigerator in an air-tight container for about 5-6 days.Enjoy and remember to tag me @CleanFoodCrush in your creations!
