Apple Cake Bars
Happy almost weekend Ya’ll! Have a very Happy 4th of July, one of the best holidays for eating around. We all know that saying “as American as apple pie”, well if you have any left over from any pie baking you might undertake this is an easy way to use them up. I had a few spare apples from my attempt to eat healthier this week – and so I made them into something that has 10x more calories – because that’s how I roll.
Again, Have a very happy 4th and be safe of course!
