back with another beautiful Natures Charm recipe
Say hello to these gorgeous vegan Apple Streusel Bars. My favourite ingredient to bake with at the moment has to be the sweetened condensed coconut milk by Natures Charm. It really does blow my mind how these amazing brands manage to create such delicious products free from animal based ingredients. Hats off to you!
Anything baked with apples reminds me of growing up round my Grandma’s. You could always guarantee an apple pie with ice cream was nearby by. These Apple Streusels bars have 3 delicious layers, which compliment each other perfectly. The layers of thinly sliced apples have been covered in cinnamon, and then had the condensed milk poured all over. Meaning that when they go in the oven, they stew down and bubble in all of the coconut-ty goodness.
Finished off with a mouthwatering crumbly top layer, serve these babies with a big dollop of ice cream, and share them with your loved ones. If you can share!
