If you said you’d rather bake than cook in my What About YOU? Baker or Cook post, you might enjoy this low-fat recipe for caramel bars, one of our favorites for fall. Each 2”x3” square contains only 2 grams of fat, and it’s a breeze to put together.
Golden Goodie Bars
2 ¼ cups of Bisquick® or other baking mix
1 ½ cups brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Blend baking mix, eggs, sugar and vanilla in large bowl. Stir until mixed well. *
3. Spread dough in greased and floured (or sprayed with non-fat cooking spray) oblong pan, 13 x 9 x 2. I like to sprinkle fall colored cake decorations on top before baking, to give it a festive look.
4. Bake about 30-35 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.
*You can blend in 1 cup of chopped nuts, coconut, or chocolate chips, but this will add to the fat content.
This is a fun, fast recipe for little ones to help with, since it only has four ingredients, and it’s nearly impossible to ruin!
