5 ml (1 t) salt
5 ml (1 t) baking powder
250 ml (1 C) brown sugar

6 JOYA apples, peeled, cored
Sieve together the flour, salt and baking powder into the bowl of a processor or mixer

Pulse or beat to rub the butter evenly into the dry ingredients until it all comes together in a rough crumble.
Press half of the mixture into a baking pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.
Slice the JOYA apples thinly and evenly and then place the slices in a layer across the top of the dough.
Crumble the remaining half of the dough over the top of the JOYA apple slices.
Bake the JOYA Apple Oat Bars in an oven preheated to 180°C for 45 minutes or until crispy and golden.
Leave to cool and then slice into bars.
