Apple Blondies

In this blondie recipe, you’ll need your usual baking suspects: butter, sugar, salt, vanilla and a few others. It uses all of the common baking staples that you probably have in the kitchen right now.

The most important ingredient of all though, is the apples!

What Kind of Apples To Buy

The main ingredient in this yummy recipe is of course, apples. You have lots of choices when you walk down the produce aisle at your local grocery store, but what we thought was best for this is Granny Smith apples. (The green ones.)

However, you can use whatever you have on hand. Maybe try it with McIntosh (they are great for baking) or Fuji (they have amazing flavor). Another great option is good ‘ole Red Delicous.

I made the Apple Blondie and they were fantastic! Everyone loved them! Thank you!!

Where has this recipe been all my life!?!?!?!! It was so delicious, and I even forgot to add the vanilla. I can’t wait to try it again with all the ingredients. Thanks for this post!5 stars

I made these at work. Every one loved them! So when I got home I had to make my husband and I some. Great topped with icecream5 stars

Delicious! I used some overripe pears instead of apples and only had 2 large eggs: the recipe still turned out perfectly and was a huge hit with the family. Chewy texture, just the right amount of sweetness and light fruity taste.5 stars
