  4. Transfer the remaining oat mixture to the prepared baking pan, press firmly with spatula to pack tight, set aside.
  5. Add the peeled and sliced apples to a skillet, at a medium heat. Add maple syrup, coconut oil, coconut oil, ground cinnamon, salt and gently stir to combine. Cook for 3 – 4 minutes until apples are cooked through.
  6. Mix arrowroot starch with water and pour over apple mixture. Continue to cook for two more minutes until the mixture thickens to a sauce consistency.
  7. Transfer the mixture to the prepared crust and spread evenly to cover the crust.
  8. Sprinkle the reserved oat mixture as crumble topping. Do not pack tight.
  9. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the mixture sets and golden brown. Let it cool for 10 minutes, slice into squares, serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

  1. Oats can be substituted with gluten free flour, in that case, use cold vegan butter in place of coconut oil.
  2. Use apples that are good for baking, this results in crisp apples at the center. For example, Honey crisp, pink lady, gala, granny smith works well for this recipe.
