Caramel Apple Pie Bars
This recipe makes a triple layer dessert in these Caramel Apple Pie Bars that is gluten free. Before you run away from this recipe, though, it does not take much flour in any case, and the gluten free varieties of flour alternatives have begun really terrific. Although you can always taste the difference, they offer a new kind of flavor that is just as enjoyable and lovely as any thing made using a wheat flour. So try this recipe just once, and you will become a convert to trying other recipes that use alternatives to wheat based flours.
This recipe is easy, and comes together in three parts. Get the kids in on it. They can blend the crumble while you put together the rest of the recipe. And this recipe has lots of goodness in it as much as it has sugar, which we sometimes work to minimize (and for good reason) in our diets. This recipe, though, includes oats, a great source of dietary fiber—you could even double the amount you use in the base of this recipe, if you wished to. The base will just be a bit more crumbly and nutty tasting (yum). The apples are another great food source, well researched and known to slow down sugar absorption and so a great fruit to include in any sweet dessert. Here, the apples are peeled. Try and get in to the habit of not peeling your apples in the desserts to really bump up the nutrition. Once you become accustomed to eating the peel in all your desserts, you will come to really enjoy the more intense flavor and robust texture that the apple peels provide.
The crumb topping has great texture and plenty of spicing to make it a delicious addition to the mixture. Let the kids make it, and have fun at it. Together, these three layers will make a great dessert. Enjoy it soon. Find out how to make this recipe and many others at the website, Amy In The Kitchen.
