Delicious gluten free pie bars are an easy alternative to make to traditional pies! Summer flavors are combined in a buttery, crispy crust and fruity filled filling.
Everytime I head to Sprouts or Whole Foods those delicious pie bars sit at the front checkout.
It's so hard when I'm hungry to not want to dig in and eat. Actually, one usually ends up on the conveyor belt mysteriously. I'm not sure how they jump up there, but they do.
Pie bars are delicious and taste amazing. And with the heat of the summer in full swing, a nice fresh pie is on the menu.
But have you tried to make gluten free pie? Or any pie?
There is so much work needed. It's kind of exhausting by the time you make the crust. And making a gluten free crust is a pain. It's not like a normal pie crust and I've tried to post one a million times and it won't turn out for me.
So when I fell across this recipe for a pie bar, I thought it was ingenious! So much easier to make and it took very little time and energy to make but still yielded great results. It really took very little time to make and came together really easy. The hardest part was incorporating the butter into the flour to make the crust and topping. (Never a fun job--that's why I have kids, right?!) They kind of disappeared quickly though when it was time to help out. But then they came back when it was time to eat. Sigh. I'll keep trying to train them. It's a process.
This pie bar is amazing. With a buttery crisp crust and fruity filling, it's the perfect summer treat! You can even freeze leftovers for a later time.
