Notes

  • This recipe for apple crisp bars uses a can of apple pie filling.  If you want loads and loads of apples, add a second can to the recipe. This will also make the recipe stretch farther.
  • 1 1/2 cups butter is equal to 3 sticks.
  • Be sure to use quick oats, not to be confused with old fashioned oats. 
  • Apple Crumble Bars are made in a jelly roll pan, meaning they will serve a crowd. I like to line the bottom of my jelly roll pan with parchment paper. 
  • The best part in my opinion is the caramel topping. Drizzle as much or as little as you desire, or omit completely.
