With a buttery crust, thick apple pie filling and crispy crumb topping these Apple Pie Crumble Bars are a fall dessert that is hard to resist.
I don’t know if you remember my Apple Cinnamon Blondies from last year, but they were one of my favorite fall treats. They were a part of Rachel’s An Apple a Day series. Well, this year she is hosting again and of course I had to bring my A-game!
So far over there you can find Apple and Salted Caramel Ice Cream (drool), Caramelized Apple & Cheddar Cheese Soft Pretzels (What?!), and Apple Cider Donuts (three ways!) among other things.
I actually baked these Apple Pie Crumble Bars a few weeks ago, before apple season had really even started. I wanted an apple dessert that I could bake ahead of time for Rosh Hashanah and that would travel well.
These bars were the perfect solution. They were a little bit of a baking project, but with Matt in the kitchen helping (he made the filling), they really weren’t too complicated. If he hadn’t helped I probably would have just skipped the peeling of the apples:-)
They were a huge hit for the holiday, though I imagine they would have been an even bigger hit warmed up and smothered with ice cream… next time, next time.

Thanks SO much for sharing these. I can’t tell you how much I love them!! :)
they look yummy!
What a perfect fall treat!
I love a good apple crumble, so um, I need these. (if you eat a whole pan, is it the same as just eating an entire apple crumble?)
Hooray! I love the apple a day series!
I am definitely in apple baking mode. Not sure I have the energy for a full-on pie just yet, but bars I can handle! Off to check these out!
I love crumble bars, and these look like the perfect bars for fall!
These are the kind of bars I love because that crunch from the oat crumble just adds the right amount of texture.
Anything with crumble is a hit with me… but add apple?? And it’s something I don’t think I’d share!!! LOVE!!!
