GFCF Apple Bars

It's apple season - and my apple tree is loaded. I made these yesterday and they are already gone. Yum, yum.

Apple Bars

½ cup melted cf margarine
1 cup sugar (I used raw sugar)
1 egg
1 cup gf flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill GF Mix)
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
½ tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup apples – peeled, cored and finely chopped. You want to use firm cooking apples.
1 cup chopped nuts (I used almonds)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a square 8 inch by 8 inch pan.

In a large bowl, mix melted margarine with the sugar and egg. Mix in flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, and cinnamon. Then stir in apples and nuts. Spread batter in prepared pan.

Bake for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I frosted mine with an icing made from powdered sugar mixed with a little vanilla and fake milk (I used Dari Free).

Oh - I have tons of fruit - hop over to my gardening blog and check out what I all grow in my MN yard! I even have a peach tree (well it was recently damaged, but still alive so far....) - unheard of in MN. I do a lot of canning.
