Apple crumble breakfast bars (vegan)

If this breakfast doesn't sound 'a-peel-ing' enough just yet, wait until you hear about how 'hardcore' healthy they are! You will apple-solutely love it!

Though I'd apple-y continue with the puns, let's get serious for a second - these bad boys are insanely delicious, easy, and healthy! Pretty much how I like all my recipes.

This recipe is vegan, extra clean with all organic ingredients, zero sugar and butter, and will only take you 15 minutes to prep, then 40 minutes to bake! Check it out!

Apple crumble breakfast bars

You will need (for approximately 12 bars)

Apple ingredients:

- 3 organic lady apples

- 1/2 cup almond milk

- 1/4 tsp salt

- 2 tsp cinnamon

- 8 tbsp pure Canadian maple syrup (can substitute with any pure maple syrup, check the back for ingredients to keep it clean)

- 1/2 cup crushed walnuts

Base ingredients

- 2 cups organic rolled oats (gluten free works too)

- 1/2 cup wholewheat organic flour

- 5 tbsp extra virgin raw coconut oil

For the topping:

- 1 lady apple

- 15 pitted dates


1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C and brush your tray with coconut oil (if non-stick, you will not need to brush it with oil)

2. Mix the apple ingredients together in one bowl

3. Mix the base ingredients together in a separate bowl

4. Mix them both together in the same bowl

5. Pour the batter in the tray. I chose a tray that has crevices for small individual cakes or bars but you can also opt for a regular square or rectangular tray, or even small bowls to bake the apple crumble in

6. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes and then broil for an additional 2-3 minutes till golden at the top

7. In the meantime, prepare your 'caramel sauce' by simply adding 10-15 pitted dates in a bowl and covering them with boiling water. Cover the bowl and let it sit for 10 minutes, then blend the dates with about 6-8 tbsp of the hot water which they soaked in. Blend until perfectly smooth and combined. Your 'caramel sauce' will end up having the same color and look as the caramel we're all familiar with

8. Once the bars are ready, let them cool down for 10 minutes then top off with more diced apples and 'caramel sauce', serve immediately!

This is how the bars look like before being topped off:

And then after topping off, I obviously couldn't resist taking a big bite (or 2, or 4, or 6...)!

I assure you there won't be a crumble left of these bars in a day, but in case you want to store it, keep them in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days!
