These Paleo apple bars are a gluten-free alternative to a conventional recipe that I used to like to make, back in the day. They are nice and light, and go great with coffee. I have made them for Paleo people and sugar-fiends alike, and they both gobbled them right up.
Paleo apple bars are more cakey and moist than the usual bar, but they are cut into squares. So, there you have it.
Prep Tips for Best Results
Be sure to dice the apple finely. I like to use Granny Smith or Gala apples. Always use organic apples because the conventional ones are high in pesticide residue.
You could use raw honey instead of the maple syrup, if you prefer. I tend to use either one or the other, depending on what I have on hand. There tends to be only a slight difference, but both are good.
You could also chop up about 1/3 cup of dried cranberries to your Paleo apple bars. Fold them into the batter with the diced apple.
