This Gluten Free Apple Squares Recipe not only tastes scrumptious, but it's a quick and easy apple recipe without wheat flour too.
My friend Lorraine, who, by the way is an amazing cook and baker, and makes all sorts of gluten free food, sent me this recipe and photo!
Thanks Lorraine! and ... please forward any more gluten free apple recipes this way ;)
Make these squares in a 9" square baking dish, or why not double the recipe and make two? With a flavour and texture like these they won't last long!

If you have whole walnuts or pecans on hand, simply chop them by placing them between waxed paper or in a plastic bag, and then rolling over them with a rolling pin. Quick and easy!
