Chocolate Chip Caramel Bars

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!
