STEP 1: Make the base!

You will need:


STEP 2: Pick a variety and add ingredients to base:


To make apple cinnamon bars add:

1 apple, minced or pureed (about 1 cup)

2-3 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground dry ginger (opt.)

1/4 tsp mace (opt.)

1/8 tsp clove (opt.)


For Pear Ginger bars add:

1 pear, minced or pureed, about 1 c

a 1" piece of fresh ginger, finely minced or pureed with the pear

2-3 tsp cinnamon


For Cranberry Orange bars (my non-AIP boyfriend's favorite!) add:

3/4 c cranberries (I used fresh but dried would work)

Juice of 1 orange

zest of 1/4-1/2 organic orange (or 1-2 tsp dried orange peel)

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp dry ginger


For Lemon Blueberry bars add:

3/4-1 c fresh or frozen blueberries

Juice of 1 lemon (Meyer lemon would be great if you can find it!)

zest of 1/2-1 organic lemon or 1-2 tsp dried lemon peel

1 tsp dried culinary lavender (opt.)


For Carrot Cake bars add:

3/4-1 c shredded carrot

1/4-1/2 c raisins

2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp dry ginger


For Pumpkin Spice bars add:

3/4-1 c pureed pumpkin

2-3 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp mace

1/8 tsp clove


STEP 3: Mix and bake!


  • Mix all ingredients together well.


  • Grease an 8x8 glass dish (I used coconut oil, but avocado oil would work fine too)


  • Pack the mixture into the dish until firm.


  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 1 1/2 - 2 hours, loosely covered with foil. Take the foil off the last 5-10 minutes to brown.


This holds together better after it cools but is also delicious crumbly and hot. I love to eat the bars cold right out of the fridge!


I'd love to hear what variety you like best! I bet banana and dates with a little clove would be yummy too...what about adding pineapple and coconut chips? Pina Colada bars!!!!😍 The varieties are endless!!


ENJOY!!! 💕
