These gluten-free and vegan apple pie bars make a great nutritious after-school snack for your children or a delicious kid-friendly holiday dessert! Walnuts and oats are rich in antioxidants, and oats are an excellent source of beta-glucans (a soluble fiber that feeds beneficial bacteria in the gut)! It is important to use a soft baking apple in these bars so they cook properly during the baking time!

3 tablespoons warm water

6 tablespoons coconut oil
