Recommended Posts

The most time is spent with the caramel, takes about 15-20 min. stirring constantly to bring to temp.

to preface-i LOVED this crust! It made a lot, held up great, I will be using this crust for cheesecakes from now on!!!

Caramel Apple Bars (Adapted to be gluten-free)

For the Crust:

1 cup brown sugar

1 stick butter-melted

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3/4 teaspoon salt

1 c pamelas (if using other flour, add 1/2 tsp baking soda and xanthan gum)

1 cup ground almonds (or other nut)

2 cups rolled oats-gluten-free

For the Filling:

3 1/2 cups sliced apples (about 24 ounces)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon

1 cup Homemade Caramel*

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a 9X13 pan with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, beat the brown sugar and the next 3 ingredients until thoroughly combined. Mix in the flour, ground nuts and oats until crumbly. Scoop out 1 cup and set aside. Place the remaining crumbs into your prepared pan and press down firmly to coat the bottom.

Toss the apples in a large bowl with the salt and cinnamon. Arrange them over the crust.

Drizzle the warm homemade caramel over the top and then sprinkle with the remaining crumbs you set aside.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until bubbly and the apples are just tender. Remove and let cool until they are just warm to the touch. Cut into squares. Try and let the bars rest until the caramel has set before serving. (GOOD LUCK :D )

Homemade Caramel

1 cup heavy cream

2 cups brown sugar

1/4 cup light corn syrup

4 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon good quality vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix all of the above ingredients into a 2 quart saucepan. Heat over medium, stirring constantly, until it reaches soft-ball stage (230-234 degrees). Remove and gently pour your 1 cup over the apple mixture.

This recipes makes more than you will use so pour the rest into a 8X8 pan lined with foil and let cool. Cut into squares and you have your own homemade caramel squares!

You could leave out the caramel-or use a dairy free recipe for caramel. If you left out the sauce, I think it would still be great, maybe a little more crumbly.

Here's what I found:
