These are EXCELLENT bars!!!! Tastes just like apple crisp only better. My husband already asked me when I was going to make them again! I added about 1 1/2 cups of apple (gala) and a smidge more of the spices when I made them. Next time I will probably add some pecans to the topping for a little more flavor. Thank you beckas for posting this wonderful recipe. It reminds me of one that my mom used to have!!!
These are very good and pretty easy to make. The first time I made them -- I made them exactly as written and they disappeared quickly. The second time I made them, I added about 1/2 well chopped pecans to the topping before baking -- turned out superb. No one has turned these down!
This recipe was great! My 2 year old would not stop eating these. I did not hae any allspice but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. I be making these again! Thank you!
Yum-Yum-Yummy beckas! This recipe combines two of my fave desserts: apple crisp and cheesecake! I used all of the topping/crust mixture on the bottom (my preference), and used Philadelphia Neufchatel cheese (1/3 less guilt). Thanks, I enjoyed this!
These are awesome. My 94 year old gradmother, who is an excellent baker, agrees that these are definitely worth making. They are now one of her favorites. Thanks for sharing. No need to change a thing. Easy to make and even easier to eat.
These are a wonder quick dessert. I substituted Splenda for half the sugar and used wheat flour, and they came out great. I have also made these with fresh blueberries - use about double the amount of apples called for so that the top is covered - delicious!
Absolutly delicious!!! Easy to put together, followed all directions except I added 2 cups of finely diced apples instead of 1. This one is now added to my favorite recipe file. My husband took it to work for an apple recipe contest. I don't know yet if it won but I bet it will. Thanks so much for posting. Well it didn't win but it has been a winner according to everyone else. The next time I made it I sprinkled chopped nuts on the top and we really liked that too.
I was looking for my recipe for apple oat bars and cant find it since my move...So I stumbled upon this one and it was a great find...Maybe that recipe will never be found again thanks to this one..I love cheesecake and it is so good with the apple and oats, maybe next time I will add a little caramel sauce to it, cant wait.
OMG this is to dye for!! Before I had the bars out of the pan they were nearly gone by my kids, neighbors and husband. Even I tried to get my fair share before they disappeared. The only complaint I have is how many dishes I had to use as it's a three part process (crust, filling mixture) and then defrosting the cream cheese if needed. However it was totally worth it and if I could make these and eat them everyday without ever gaining a pound I'ld be in apple oat cheesecake bar heaven
I made this for an apple baking contest at work and I won first place. I did put in double the apples and I made extra topping.
