Caramel Apple Bars

These bars are absolutely perfect for fall. They are dense yet gooey, and they are fantastic with ice cream (and surprisingly with greek yogurt too). These are really good right out of the oven, but they get even better if you let them sit in the tupperware for a couple of days.  

Adapted from this recipe
1.75c Flour + 1/2c for Apples
1c Brown Sugar
3/4c Butter
1.5c Oats
1tsp Salt
1/2tsp Baking Soda
1.5tsp Vanilla
2tbsp Cinnamon
5 Finely Chopped & Peeled Apples
Caramel Topping
1/2c Chopped Pecans

OVEN: 400F
BAKE: 30min
YIELD: 15 Bars

1. Mix together the brown sugar and butter. 

2. Stir in flour, oats, salt, and baking soda. Reserve about two cups and press the rest into the bottom of an ungreased 9x12 pan. Pack it well so none of the caramel seeps out while baking. 

3. Toss the apples in a small bowl with about a half a cup of flour, vanilla, and a tablespoon of cinnamon. Pour into the pan. 

4. Take your jar of caramel sauce and pour it over the apples. I used almost my entire jar, but it's up to you. 

5. Sprinkle the reserved oat mixture on top. Top with the rest of cinnamon and the chopped pecans.

6. Bake up and cut immediately after you take it out of the oven.
