AppleWeek is finally here!  To start off the week I’m sharing Caramel Apple Nut Bars. For this recipe, I used oatmeal from Flavahan’s and Honeycrisp apples from Rainier fruit plus really useful measuring cups and spoons from Dreamfarm.

Caramel and apple are a match made in heaven. It is a quintessential fall combination. Adding nuts take them over the top. It’s not only delicious but a perfect dessert, snack, or even breakfast. Well, it does have apples and oats which are breakfast foods, right?

Caramel Apple Nut Bars make a great snack or dessert.

After these bars had disappeared, I thought they would make a delicious base for an ice cream sundae. Add more nuts, a drizzle of caramel over some vanilla ice cream. Yum! I’ll have to remember that for next time. There is sweetness, crunch, and creaminess to these bars. A little bit of everything. They didn’t last long.
