Caramelitas Simple yet Healthy Cookies Bars
I baked Caramelitas for the Blogging Marathon Meet#75 when we were to make cookies. I had in mind these Oreos but since my kitchen was to get some makeover I had to shelve my elaborate plan. I needed some cookies that were simple and yummy. Caramelitas with oats, nuts and chocolate not to mention caramel sauce or dulce de leche fit the bill to the T.
I like to think they are healthy enough to suit a person on diet.
These are the changes I made:
- The original recipe calls for a 12*12 inch pan. Since I cannot dream of that big a pan to fit in my oven I went ahead and made the full batch of the oats mixture and used my 8-inch pan. The balance I used a 6 cup muffin pan to make for folks at home as they had not got a taste of the cookies just the smell.
- Also, the unsalted butter and salt got replaced with my trusted Amul butter.
- 2 Cups Oats
- 2 Cups Maida/APF
- 1 Teaspoon Baking powder
- 1 1/2 Cups Brown sugar
- 1 Cup Cup Butter melted
- 1 1/4 Cups ¼ Cups Dark chocolate coarsely chopped
- 1 Cup Cup almonds and cashew nuts lightly toasted and coarsely chopped
- 1 Cup Caramel sauce or dulce de leche
- Preheat oven to 350˚F/180°C.
- Line is a 12x12 inch square pan with parchment paper.
- Mix the oats, flour, baking powder, sugar in a bowl.
- Add the butter and mix well. Divide the mixture in two.
- Spread one part of the mixture in the prepared pan.
- Press out well and evenly with a spoon or like did with a katori /bowl.
- Bake in for 10 minutes.
- After 10 minutes remove and sprinkle the chocolate and nuts evenly over the surface.
- Drizzle the caramel sauce evenly over the top.
- Take care and spread the oats mixture on the top and press lightly again with the spoon or bowl.
- Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
- Leave in a pan to cool completely, cut into bars and serve.
