Happy International Coffee Day! Go ahead, take a break; pour yourself a cup of the good stuff and enjoy it with a maple-coffee-glazed apple crumb bar. It’s the perfect way to celebrate such an important holiday.

With in-season apples making their triumphant return to farmers markets, these crumb bars are the perfect way to welcome fall into your kitchen. And as a bonus, they are both vegan and gluten-free — so you can share your International Coffee Day treat with all your friends, regardless of their dietary restrictions.

The real highlight of these bars is the glaze, made with cashews, freshly brewed coffee, maple syrup, and a pinch of sea salt. It’s so good you might be tempted to drink it straight, but it’s even better drizzled generously over the crumb bars.
