Apple Brownies

Chewy edges, crazy moist blondies, and a crackling crust add up to these mouthwatering, slightly sweet Apple Brownies.

Apple Blondies

I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as too many apples. When making apple crisp if it says to use 6 cups, you better believe I am using 12 cups. And so far, no one has ever complained.

This recipe follows that philosophy. Other versions have some nicely chopped apples scattered throughout. Not this one – pack ’em in, it makes it so good!

The secret to the apples baking up so nicely is to use the varieties that are meant for baking. Johnathon apples are perfect for apple brownies as they hold their shape so well. McIntosh, not so much, use those for applesauce as they cook down and get deliciously saucy quite easily.

Back to our brownies – Oh. my. word. Friends! How have I never had apple brownies before now? They are AMAZING. Huge thanks to my friend Katie for telling me about them and encouraging me to try the recipe.

With hints of cinnamon and an abundance of sweet apples in every single bite, the reviews of this recipe have been overwhelming. Double thumbs up every time.

I’ve made these a couple of times already and shared them with friends and everyone went positively crazy over them. The texture is that of a blondie packed with cinnamon apples.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9-inch inch baking dish with parchment or grease well with butter.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the melted butter, sugar, and egg until fluffy. Add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Beat just until combined.
  3. Add the apples and the walnuts, if desired. Stir to mix throughout. (As pictured, it will appear that there are more apples than batter in the bowl.)
  4. Spread the apple mixture into the prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center, comes out clean.

Apple Desserts

I love a warm apple dessert spiced with cinnamon and slightly sweetened. It is a fall favorite of mine.

Warm slices of baked apples covered with cinnamon brown sugar streusel topping are all that’s required to make this old fashioned apple crisp.

Apple crisp is delicious on its own. However, when you turn it into a batch of the creamiest of homemade vanilla ice creams and load it up with bits of cinnamon sweet baked apples and crunchy streusel toppings – Perfection is the only word that comes to mind.
