Though they still qualify as dessert, these are lower in fat than ordinary bar cookies, and packed with gluten-free oats for a healthy dose of fiber.
Makes 12 bars
Free of: gluten, and all top allergens
*A Note on Coconut
Coconut is technically a fruit. While most allergists do not consider it a tree nut, if you are nut allergic, ask your doctor if coconut is safe for you.

Place 1/4 cup of the leftover caramel sauce in a small dish.
Whisk in 6 tablespoons of sifted powdered sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of dairy-free margarine. Spread on the cooled bars before serving.
Non-Gluten-Free: If gluten isn’t an issue for you, you can substitute an equivalent amount of all-purpose flour in place of the ground oats in the caramel sauce (1 1/2 tablespoons), and also use it to replace 1/2 cup of the oats in the bar dough.
