  • 1 cup Simple Truth Organic™ Light Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1⁄2 cup Simple Truth Organic™ Salted Butter, softened
  • 1⁄4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 3⁄4 cups plus 3 tablespoons Simple Truth Organic™ Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, divided

  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 7 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 package (12 oz.) caramels


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • For the crust and topping: Beat the brown sugar, butter and shortening in a large mixing bowl until creamy. Add the oats, 1 3/4 cups flour, salt and baking soda.
  • Beat until mixed. Reserve 2 cups of the oat mixture. Pat remaining oat mixture over the bottom of an ungreased 9”x13” baking pan.

  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until brown, bubbly and apples are tender. Cool in pan on a wire rack.
