My Mother-in-law shared this wonderful bar recipe with me. How can you go wrong with oats, chocolate and caramel? The only thing I changed in her recipe was the flour to Natalie’s Gluten Free Flour Mix. There still is one more thing that needs to be changed…Next time I need to double the recipe to fit into a 9 x 13 pan. These disappear too quickly! Our whole family loves them!
1 c Natalie’s Gluten Free Flour Mix
1/4 t salt
3/4 c Gluten Free oats
1/4 t baking soda
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter
24 Kraft caramels
2 T milk
2 T Natalie’s Gluten Free Flour Mix
1/2 c chocolate chips (or a little more would be yummy too)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix 1 c. flour and next 5 ingredients until like pie crust. Remove 1 c. of mixture and set aside. Pat into 8″ pan. Bake 10 minutes.
3. Melt caramels with milk, then blend in the 2 T of flour. Pour over crust and sprinkle chocolate chips over caramel. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top. Bake for 15 more minutes.
* I bet these would even work well with using oat flour instead of Natalie’s Gluten Free Flour Mix. If you try it with a different flour, will you please leave a comment so other’s can see how they turn out? Thanks a bunch!
