Ingredients

    For the crust:
    4 cups rolled oats
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 T lemon zest
    10 T peanut butter
    3 T agave nectar
    2 T honey
    1 T vanilla extract
    1/4 cup water


    For the filling:
    1 med apple, grated
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 T lemon juice
    2 T agave nectar
    2 T honey

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.


Line a 13 x 9 inch baking pan with parchment paper.


In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for the filling. Set aside.


In a large bowl, stir together oats, flour, salt, and lemon zest. Rub the peanut butter into the oat mixture with your fingers until combined. Now add agave nectar, honey, vanilla extract and water. Stir all ingredients together until well mixed. The dough should feel firm yet sticky.


Wet your hands and press 1/2 the dough into the prepared pan. Now spread the filling over the oat mixture. Pour any accumulated liquid right over the pan. Top the apple filling with the remaining dough.


Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in preheated oven, checking for golden brown color on top. Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack. Cut into 24 bars. Store in airtight container for up to one week.


Makes 24 bars.
