I revised this recipe to lighten it up but maybe I went too far? They weren't as sweet as I'd like...probably need more brown sugar.
2 C Flour
2 C oatmeal
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt3 TB light margarine, melted
½ c. water
½ c. unsweetened applesauce
½ c. Splenda
½ c. sugar free caramel topping
½ c. mini chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 350 °. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray; set aside. Combine flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, soda, salt, margarine, water, applesauce and Splenda. Press 1/2 of the above mixture into prepared baking dish. Bake 10 minutes. Spread caramel over crust; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Crumble the remaining oat mixture over this layer and bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.Yield: 24 bars.
