Apple Butterscotch Bars
The smell of home baking wafting through your home!! Is there anything better? Now that the days are getting cooler we can start to have the oven on and baking some lovely desserts again like these easy Apple Butterscotch Bars.
Kids would love these packed into their lunchboxes or they make a great after school treat too. I love the combination of the sweet butterscotch with the apples. It is perfect for fall but these bars could carry you right through the holidays too.
They are a nice change from the usual chocolate chip bars you see.
I used dry apples in this recipe. They also make a great snack in lunchboxes. Sometimes a whole apple is hard for little ones to eat and when you slice it the wedges brown.
Wholesome simple ingredients go into these bars. Also, I find making bars are so much easier than a cookie. Line your pan with parchment so removing bars are a breeze.
I always cut it to size but keeping the short ends longer so you can grab them and pull the bars out of the pan. Slicing them up then is so much simpler.
Crispy edges and yummy soft centers make these bars a delight to bake and share! Make someone happy by baking these up soon!!
This recipe was inspired by the Apple Butterscotch Cookies I have made in the past. Yes, the picture on that post is blech! But that was a long time ago!
The kids on Amber’s volleyball team went nuts for them. They were a huge hit!!

I think your Apple Butterscotch Bars sound totally nommy! I love apple flavors, especially this time of year and I bet the butterscotch pairs with the apple flavor really well.
