Apple Brownies with Cinnamon Sugar 

I have been obsessed with brownies lately – and not the chocolate variety. I am talking about strawberry brownies, lemon brownies, banana brownies, pineapple brownies and even blueberry brownies. My latest development though!? Apple brownies! Think of the taste of your favorite apple cobbler in brownie form. These are moist, delicious, simple and perfect for any time of year! Stay tuned for other “brownie” recipes that will be on their way to you sooner than you think! Try these – enjoy – and let me know what you think! Fabulous! 

Apple Brownies with Cinnamon Sugar

1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter, soft
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 large egg
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 Granny Smith apple
1 Red Delicious apple
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons white all-purpose flour

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 8×8-inch square baking pan with non-stick cooking spray containing flour. Line with parchment paper, leaving excess hang over – creating handles – alongside two sides of the pan – then spray again lightly with non-stick cooking spray containing flour.

In a large bowl beat together the soft unsalted butter, white granulated sugar and light brown sugar until light in color and fluffy in texture. 

Beat in the large egg. 

Add in the ground cinnamon, pure vanilla extract, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix until combined. 

Peel and core the apples. Cut into small pieces and add to the batter. Stir together. 

Gently fold in the white all-purpose flour. 

Pour into the prepared pan and smooth out the top. Place in preheated oven for 45 minutes. 

Remove and allow to cool. 

Store and eat straight from the refrigerator if you want your brownie to have a more “traditional” brownie texture.
