Low-fat Caramel Bars for Fall






Would you rather cook, or bake? If you said "Bake," you might enjoy this low-fat recipe for caramel bars, one of our favorites for fall. Each 2”x 3” 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
3 eggs
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!
