Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350F. Add all the crust ingredients to a bowl and blend well. Transfer the dough to an 8" x 8" pan and press down with a spoon until you have an even layer. Bake for 12-14 minutes.
Step 2: Place a pot or large pan on the stove on medium heat and add the coconut oil. Once the oil is melted, add the other ingredients.
Step 3: Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the apples are the consistency you desire.
Step 4: To make the caramel Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and stir well until it's smooth.
Step 5: Pour approximately 3/4 of the caramel over the shortbread crust, and spread evenly until smooth.
Step 6: Spoon the apples over the caramel.
Step 7: Drizzle the remaining caramel sauce over the apples. Place the pan in the freezer for 1-2 hours, until the caramel hardens.
