Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal old fashioned or quick cooking
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 5-6 cups ripe apples peeled and diced (I used MacIntosh)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2/3 cup caramel divided

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oatmeal, and brown sugar, cut in the cold butter with a pastry blender until pea sized. Reserve 2 cups of the crumb mixture. Press the remaining mixture into the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Crust will be crumbly. Set aside.
  • Dice the apples and toss with the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Arrange apples over the top of the crust. Drizzle 1/3 cup of caramel sauce over the apples. Top with the remaining crumb mixture.
  • Bake at 350 F for 40-45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is lightly browned. Let cool completely, drizzle with remaining caramel sauce and cut into bars. Store in the refrigerator.
