Paleo Apple Cake Bars (Dairy-Free, Low-Sugar)

I know it’s not fall anymore and we’re heading right into summer, but I was craving something apple so I made something apple. Save this recipe for a few months from now if you need 😉.

This recipe is paleo, gluten-free, dairy-free, and lower sugar all per usual so enjoy your nightly treat. The topping contains nuts and really makes the dish, but if you are allergic you could try using oats, chopped tiger nuts, or shredded coconut
