Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

Life is crazy around here – we are getting ready to move…and I have been all over the emotional spectrum because of it.  We are moving for my husband’s job, and I am grateful that he has a good job that he really likes, and I am grateful we are able to move and are not “stuck” somewhere due to circumstances that are out of our control…but I am so so sad to leave where we are at.  I LOVE my neighborhood, my neighbors, my house, and most importantly my babysitter – who is really way more like family than anything.  I love her and I love her entire family.  I wish that I could take them all with me, but I can’t (even though I am thinking of every scenario under the sun to still work something out – and no, I am not kidding, I am serious)!  

Anyways, needless to say, I am busy and it has been apparent through my blog posts.  I am sorry.  I will continue to post weekly, and hope to pick that up once we get settled.

Enough about me.  I know you are all crazy busy as well (such is the lives we live)…I am just hoping that you all saved a little bit of time to whip up these insanely delicious Apple Pie Bars.  They are seriously like a little slice of heaven on earth, and you would never ever believe they are paleo and vegan friendly.  Made from all wholesome ingredients while still tasting just as good, if not better than a traditional dessert – promise!  I drizzled mine with a sweet maple glaze.  That is obviously optional…but highly recommended.
