Oozing with caramel sauce!


If you like caramel, you will love this recipe. It has apples in it so it can't be unhealthy!

You could substitute with the pecans, however they did give it an extra nice taste, and the combinations on this slice work brilliantly together.

As with much of my other baking, I have used coconut sugar as it is an organic product that is not real sugar, and therefore healthier, It is also not as sweet as sugar.

I have used bought caramel sauce in this instance, however you could make this yourself.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients
cup butter, softened
1 cup coconut sugar -or brown sugar
1 cup plain flour

3 cups chopped unpeeled apples-about 3
cup caramel topping
cup plain flour
Vanilla ice cream, optional
Additional caramel topping, optional

Beating butter and sugar


Beat in 1 cup of the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda and pecans until well mixed and crumbly.

Press half of the crumbly mixture in the bottom of the pan and press down to form a crust. Keep the rest of the mixture for topping.

Slice the apples and spread over the crust in the baking dish.

In a small saucepan, heat cup caramel topping and cup flour. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly. Boil about 1 minute or until the mixture thicken slightly. At this stage I HAD to stop and clean out the saucepan as a special treat!

Cool for about 30 minutes before serving as it will break up less if you do this.
