Gluten Free Caramel Apple Bars
In a Kitchenaid Bowl using the Paddle ~ Cream:
½ Cup Unsalted Butter, softened
¼ Cup Shortening
1 Cup packed Brown Sugar
Add and mix well:
1 ¾ Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 ½ Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Quick Oats
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
½ tsp. Baking Soda
¾ tsp. Salt
Reserve 2 cups of the Oat Mixture for the topping.
Press the remaining Oat Mixture into an ungreased 9X13 Baking Pan
I used a small Silicone rolling pin to help spread out the Oat Mixture easily. Or use your hands.
Peel, Core and Coarsely Chop 3-4 Tart Apples..Measuring 4 ½ Cups of Apples
I used Granny Smith Apples.
Toss the Apples with 3 Tbl. Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
Spread Apples over the Oat Mixture.
In a sauce pan on low heat: Melt
40-45 Individual Caramels.
I used a Flat edge Wooden Spoon and a Butter Knife to help drizzle the melted Caramels over the Apples.
Sprinkle the reserved Oat mixture over the apples. I used the Silicone roller to press it in.
The oat mixture does not cover the entire layer.. not to worry.. the caramel will melt and it will look great.
Bake in a preheated 400* Oven
25-30 minutes until golden Brown and Apples are tender.
Cool in the Pan for 15 minutes on a wire wrack then cut into the size of your choice.
I removed the bars from the pan and cooled completely on the wire wrack.
After they have cooled store in the Refrigerator in a container.
