Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats *I used qucik oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • FOR THE CRUMBLE TOPPING
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp light butter softened

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F and spray a 9 inch square dish with some cooking spray.
  • In a bowl using an electric mixer mix together the apple sauce and 1/4 cup of brown sugar, add in the egg and mix well, then add in the peanut butter and vanilla and mix till well blended.
  • Stir in the flour, oats, baking powder and soda.
  • Pour batter into the baking dish and spread out evenly.
  • In a small bowl mix together the crumble ingredinets, flour, brown sugar, peanut butter and butter. I find using a few knives and cutting it (like you would cold butter into flour) works well to form the crumble texture you want.
  • Sprinkle on top of the batter then bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Let cool then cut into 12 equal bars.
  • *Optional to melt and drizzle a little peanut butter on top, I highly recommend this and you can do it over the whole thing or just per bar when you are ready to eat one.
  • These bars store well in a sealed container and after a day or two I put them in the fridge.
  • *Note- You could probably substitute with PB2 in wet form although I have not tried so I can't give an honest answer to if they will turn out the same.
