Apple Blondies

Fall is, without a doubt, my favorite season.  I love the cooler weather.  Down here in the South, it’s quite a welcome relief!  The leaves begin to turn, our sleeves get a bit longer, and roadside stands display the colors of the season in gourds and pumpkins.  I also love the arrival of all the varieties of apples.  For this particular recipe, I used Granny Smiths, but any apple variety will work.  These are the perfect Fall treat.  If you’ve made my Pecan Chewies, think those with delicious bites of apple in them.  They are incredible.  Y’all enjoy!

  5. Meredith Frey says:

  10. I printed this recipe and hope to make it soon. I really think this sounds good and so easy. I love easy ! 🙂 lol

  11. Stacey – I made the Brown Sugar Apple Blondies last night, and my only regret was that they didn’t make a bigger pan! Absolutely loved them. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.

  12. I’m a huge blondie fan but haven’t tried an apple version before!! I bet they are fantastic!

  13. Just finished making these with my 12 year old. The recipe is so simple and they are just delicious! I will definitely be making these again!

  14. Can you use self rising flour rather than having to measure all the other ingredients. See you are still using my okra fritters recipe. Hope you are enjoying it. Still follow you daily. Have a great day.

  15. Making these right now and they smell SOOOOOOOOOOO good!!!!! Can’t wait to try them! Love your recipes!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  16. Oh my! These look absolutely yummy! Can hardly wait to smell them in the oven.

  17. Can’t wait to go to Ellijay, GA this weekend to get some apples and try this. Looks scrumptious!

  18. This are incredibly delicious! Huge hit a work. Making these again this weekend.

  19. Priya Thanya says:

    just made these… they were just soooooooooooo delicious, I added vanilla essence instead of cinnamon and no pecans since I didn’t have them.

    was so good.Yummilicious.

  20. Hi Stacey love your southern bite cookbook tried a lot f the recipes gained few pounds , but well worth it. when are you going to have your own cooking show . Have a good weekend.

  21. I just took these out of the oven and my house smells fantastic! I planned these as dessert tonight but I think I’ll have to try them before then. They look really good too. The recipe says the apples should be diced. Roughly, what size would you recommend?

    • Great news! And they are SO good right out of the oven! I do a small dice – maybe about 1/2 inch?

      • Okay, they tasted fantastic. I got a more cake like consistency. I was expecting more of a chewy, brownie consistency. Did I do something wrong or is that expected? Don’t get me wrong, they were delicious. There’s only one left.

  22. Hi, Stacey!

    It’s the perfect time of year for these awesome looking blondies! I want to make them today, but was wondering if I could double the recipe for a 13 x 9 pan? The more the merrier.:) HA! Thanks for sharing all your delicious, yummy recipes!

  23. I made these for my Mah Jongg group last year. I had to copy the recipe nine times because everyone loved them. And when I served them again this year, I got the same reaction and gave the recipe to the one person who did not get it last year. These are scrumptious!

  24. I found my way here from another blogger’s link, and tried this recipe last night! I didn’t have any pecans, but I had walnuts. And then I thought, “hmmm, maple walnut apple blondies could be interesting…” so I swapped in a bit of maple syrup for some of the brown sugar (not 1-for-1, because I didn’t want them too runny/sticky!). They were delish!!!
