Apple Cookie Bars


Oh. My. Word.

What just went in my mouth?

Is food in Heaven going to taste that good?

Those were the first three things that I thought when I took a bite of these scrumptious apple cookie bars. You have to try them. Like right now. Quit reading and get baking!

Apple Cookie Bars


  •  1 apple
  • 1/3 cup almonds
  • 2/3 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 2/3 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 egg


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Dice apple into the tiniest pieces imaginable. If you think they are small enough, cut them in half again.
  • Grind almonds in a food processor until the it just begins to make a flour-like texture. You don’t want huge chunks, but you want the pieces to be distinct.
  • Combine apples, almonds, oil, and cinnamon.
  • Whisk the egg.
  • Add egg and coconut to apple mixture.
  • Spread mixture onto greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes (depending on how well-done you like your cookies).
  • Eat!

You can cut these into granola bars, cookies, or crumble topping for yogurt or ice cream.
