Apple Crumble Bars


1.5 cup flour

½ tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

½ + 1 Tbsp brown sugar

1 ¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ cup +  Tbsp cold butter

2 Tbsp milk

2 cups peeled, chopped apples

2 tsp cornstarch

3 tbsp pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract



Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix together the first seven ingredients. Chop the cold butter into small pieces for easier mixing!

Pour 2/3 of the dough into a 4×7 pan and press down firmly.

In a separate bowl, mix together the apples, cornstarch, maple syrup and vanilla extract.

Layer the apple mixture on top of the dough.

Add the rest of the dough mixture on top.

Bake for 45 minutes, and then let cool for 20 minutes before cutting into bars.
