Step 2

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Crumb Top Bars - Step 2

Peel, core and small chop the apples. Place these 4 ingredients into a skillet. Do not add any liquid as the apples cook they will sweat. Adding liquid will create too much liquid which will make the crust soggy. We want thick saucy apples not runny. Cook these for about 7 minutes.

Step 3
When the crust has baked 15 minutes remove it from the oven. Pour and spread the apples over the crust. Now add 1/3 cup chopped pecans (optional) over the apples and sprinkle the remaining/set aside crumb mix.
Step 4
Bake another 15 minutes
Allow to cool for 15 minutes
Drizzle with glaze
