While the crust is baking, you can start making the other layers
Place a pot or largepan on the stove on medium heat and add the coconut oil. Once the oil is melted, add the other ingredients
Cook for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently, until the apples are the consistency you desire
Place all the ingredients into a large bowl and stir well until it's smooth
Pour approximately 3/4 of the caramel over the shortbread crust, and spread evenly until smooth
Using a slotted spoon, spoon the apples over the caramel
