Apple Walnut Bars

Apple Walnut Bars My family loves this easy apple recipe. Apple Walnut Bars are the best when you have apples available, fresh from the orchard in the fall, but they are delicious any time of the year. I like these squares while still a little warm…with a little homemade vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce on top.

About Nelle

I am Nelle. I grew up in rural, small town, Ohio. When I was young, I learned a lot about homesteading from my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, 4-H, FFA, and others around me.
Now, I’m all grown up, have 6 children of my own, and plan to teach them everything I know.

Here on Mama’s Homestead, we talk and write about homesteading, homeschooling, and kidsteading (homesteading with kids). We teach our kids about survival, self-sufficiency, gardening (vegetable, herb, flower), orchard, beekeeping, home keeping, soap making, harvesting, cooking, food preservation, livestock, nature, crafts, homesteading tools and wares, and more…

Welcome to my homestead…come and learn with us!
