Since the kids are going back to school for the Fall, you may be looking for ways to add a little “homemade love” to their lunch.
But what if your child needs a gluten free snack? How about an easy dish like the Apple Snickerdoodle.
Here to tell us how easy it is to make is a mom who develops many gluten-free recipes, Carol Kicinski.
Apple Snickerdoodle Bars
½ cup unsalted butter, melted
½ cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar – use divided
½ cup light brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 ¼ cup gluten free flour
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 medium apple, cored and diced (about 1 ½ cups diced)
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with two pieces of parchment paper – crisscrossing them and leaving a couple inches overhang.
In a mixing bowl, combine the melted but, ½ cup sugar, and brown sugar, stir well. Stir in the egg, vanilla, flour, salt, and diced apple.
In a small bowl, combine the 3 tablespoons sugar with the cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the top of the batter.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the edges start to turn golden brown. Let cool completely in the pan.
Using the parchment paper, lift out of the pan and cut into 9 pieces.
