I have a cake recipe that is similar to this, but a bit different. These bars are a bit firmer and stay together like a bar should. These were very good!
APPLE SNACK SQUARES
The Best of Country Cooking 1999

3/4 c. vegetable oil
2 1/2 c. self-rising flour*
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 c. diced, peeled tart apples
1 c. chopped walnuts
3/4 c. butterscotch chips
In a bowl, combine sugar, eggs and oil; mix well. Stir in flour and cinnamon (batter will be thick). Stir in apples and nuts. Spread into a greased 13x9x2" pan. Sprinkle with chips. Bake @ 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden and a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool before cutting. Yield: 2 dozen.
