Fresh Apple bars

Jenny Powers


I came up with this recipe by changing a fresh apple cake recipe that I had into bars. Autumn is in the air and this is the perfect recipe to bring it in. The bars are so moist and the combination of Fiji and Granny Smith apples make it so delicious. This is my new favorite recipe for fall celebrations. I hope you enjoy it.
