They are the perfect Fall treat for any get-together with family or friends. Try them out and let me know your thoughts!



Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for greasing the plate
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup melted butter, plus more for greasing the plate

Cheesecake Layer:

  • 2 8oz package softened cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Apple Crisp Topping:

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 medium apples, thinly sliced & cubed
  • Caramel Topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare one 9×13-inch glass pan by greasing thoroughly with butter or baking spray, or light-colored metal baking pan with foil, (be sure to cover the sides, you are going to use this to lift the bars).
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, rolled oats, melted butter and brown sugar together.
  4. Press inside the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking pan.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven to cool. (I placed mine in the fridge for 5-10 minutes to help it cool quicker).
  6. Meanwhile in the bowl of your electric mixer, blend together cream cheese, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, ginger, cornstarch and vanilla.
  7. Once well combined, pour on top of your cooled graham cracker/oat crust.
  8. Arrange the apples on top of the cream cheese mixture in a single layer.
  9. Top with the Apple Crisp Topping. Bake at 350°F for 40-50 minutes.
  10. Once it’s done cooking, cool for 15 minutes, then refrigerate overnight.
  11. Cut into squares. Serve with caramel drizzled over the top of the cheesecake bars.
  12. Enjoy!

  1. They look amazing.
    We don’t have graham cracker crumbs here in England. Are they a type of biscuit? Normally in a cheesecake base I use digestives or gingernuts or a granola oaty biscuit. What kind of base graham crackers?
