Happy Labor Day, sweet friends! It’s the unofficial end of summer in my opinion and no more white pants in the South! Hahaha! Just kidding. I don’t think that “rule” really exists much anymore. What do you think? Should we still wear white pants after Labor Day? I will admit to changing from a white to brown purse today.
So, if you’re reading this (well maybe after you read this) and you are an apple dessert fan like me, drop what you are doing and go make these brownies! Like fo real!! Your family will thank you! And if you don’t have all the ingredients, go get them pronto! It reminds me of the warm, ooey-gooey cinnamon goodness of banana bread, but with apples. And I just think of apple everything in September! It’s really easy to make! I think the most time consuming part of it is just peeling and dicing the apples. Nothing to that though! And you probably have most all the ingredients on hand which makes it even better.
Apple Blonde Brownies
1 stick of unsalted butter (melted)
2 peeled and chopped apples
1 TBS lemon juice
1/2c brown sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/4c flour
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 pan. (*NOTE: I double the recipe for a 9×13 pan.)
Toss apples in lemon juice. In separate bowl, mix sugars, egg and vanilla well. Add melted butter. Add baking powder, salt, spices and flour and mix well. Gently fold in apples. Bake 27-30 minutes. Allow to cool completely if you want to slice. Or you can just get a fork and dig in while they are hot and gooey like I prefer. And they may or may not be unbelievably delicious with your coffee the next morning. Ask me how I know!
Do you see those yummy apples peeking out!? Yea, you need those in your life!
Love you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here! I appreciate every text, call, message and comment I have received with support and encouragement as I start this new journey. I hope y’all have a relaxing and memory makin’ day with your loved ones! I will see you back here tomorrow morning for my first “Table Top Tuesday”!

It will be Apple Blonde Brownies for me today, Jen! My family is going to be so excited! It takes me back to memories of the yummy Apple Poundcake my sweet mother in law always made in the fall. And fun apple picking trips with my sweet little ones when we lived in Virginia. Thank you for helping us make new memories!
Thanks Carolyn! Did you make them? What did you think? I bet y’all made some killer recipes with fresh Virginia apples!
Can’t wait to make these this week!!!
So stinkin’ good!!
What kind of apples do you recommend for this recipe? My sister in law said they’re Amazing! Can’t wait to try!!
I think I’ve used a different kind each time and haven’t been able to tell a difference at all. They are soooo good! Thanks for reading and following along! Have the best day!
I made these this weekend and they were so easy yet so delicious ~ a new Fall favorite for my family! Also, thank you for inspiring me to put down my to~do list and make the most of an opportunity to spend a fun afternoon with my daughter! I got the unexpected opportunity to pick her up from school yesterday (I work outside the home) and instead of going straight home so she could take a nap I decided to make the most of my afternoon off and take her for a surprise trip to an indoor bounce house after school. She had a blast and I had fun watching her enjoy a new experience.
Thank you for telling me! I am so glad you loved the brownies. They were a big hit for my family and I am so glad you got to spend that sweet time with your daughter! Those are the things she will remember the most, I am certain. Have the best day!
