These Vegan Apple Pie Bars are absolutely decadent! They’re drizzled with homemade salted caramel, topped with a divine crumb topping and are gluten free!
Oh, just look at that drizzle. If you’re wondering just how good these Vegan Apple Pie Bars are, they’re a straight 10/10. Oh, and that’s before you even put the caramel sauce on them. These bars are my favourite take on apple pie. Whether you’re getting into the fall mode, looking for a Thanksgiving dessert or just making dessert for your friends/Netflix binge night, these bars are a total treat worth every bite.
The other night, during another Drop Dead Diva Netflix binge, I made a makeshift apple crisp. I had some amazing granola, and sautéed an apple in a pan with some vegan butter, coconut sugar, and cinnamon. I sautéed the slices until completely soft, then topped with them some of the granola, and leftover ice cream in the fridge.
Needless to say, this was a complete win. They also were the inspiration for these bars. I do plan to make an apple crisp for you one day soon by the way, but these bars couldn’t wait.
Let me tell you about these bars. One, you need to make them. They make look complicated, but they’re pretty simple. You make one crumble, then press it into the bottom to make the crust for the bars. Top with the apples, then the rest of the crumble. Bake, cool, drizzle with vegan caramel sauce. They are easy, so decadent, and an absolutely dream come true. They’re so easy to serve, and even easier to devour.
These bars definitely remind me of bites of apple pie. I love how the apples soften up because of baking, and how these bars taste fantastic either cold, warm or at room temperature. While they’re divine on their own, my salted caramel sauce goes perfectly on these bars. The recipe makes more than you need, but trust me, it is so worth it. It also lasts for like ever in your fridge, so you can put it in and on every single dessert. Or breakfast, no judging you. Enjoy! You deserve it.
My favourite apples for these bars are Honeycrisp and Granny Smith. The Granny Smith adds a delicious touch of tartness if you’re looking for some contrast in this recipe.
