  1. PREHEAT & PREP BAKING PAN: Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C). Line a 8x8 inch baking pan with parchment paper. 
  2. CHOP: Add the oats into a food processor and pulse blend until broken down, similar to the texture of quick oats. 
  3. MIX: In a large bowl add in the oats, almond flour, peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut cream, salt and vanilla (if using) and mix until combined. 
  4. CRUST: Reserve a heaping 1/2 cup of the oat mixture for the topping and add the rest of the mixture into the pan. Press the mixture down using a flat potato masher or your fingers as evenly as possible. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Allow the crust to cool for 5 minutes. 
  5. APPLE FILLING: If using, mix the apple pie spice with the apple jam. Then spread the apple jam evenly onto the crust.
  6. CRUMBLE: Use the remaining oat mixture and crumble on top. 
  7. BAKE: Place back into the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until crumble on top is golden brown. Allow the bars to cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting. Enjoy!
