Let's Make It
1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the brown sugar, butter, and shortening in a large bowl. Stir in 1 3/4 cups flour, the oats, salt, and baking soda. Reserve 2 cups of the oat mixture. Press the remaining oat mixture in an ungreased 13x9 inch pan.
2. Toss apples, cinnamon sugar, and 3 tablespoons flour and spread over the mixture in the pan. Heat the caramels over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted; pour evenly over the apples. Sprinkle with the reserved oat mixture, pressing lightly.
3. Bake the bars 25-30 minutes or until topping is golden brown and apples are tender. Cut the bars into squares while they are still warm. Store covered in the refrigerator.
