These chewy apple blondies taste like apple pie and are covered in a sweet maple glaze. You're sure to fall in love. Do you remember that episode of Friends where Chandler and Ross are going to paaar-taaay with their old friend from college? And he can’t come so they decide to go out with Joey, but after only a couple hours on the town, they realize they’re way too old and would rather just hang out at Central Perk drinking coffee and eating muffins?

That’s pretty much been me my whole life.

Remember when I said I was basically 80 years old? Yeah, I wasn’t kidding.

Catching up with friends over dinner or a cup of coffee is an evening well spent, in my opinion. And when dessert involves blondies that taste like apple pie? Life doesn’t get much better. Unless they have Nutella in them.

Ohhh. It’s going to start getting good around here.

Are you excited? Because I am.

And five more words: Do not skip the glaze.

Ingredients

    Blondies
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Apple Filling
  • 2 large apples, chopped finely
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Maple Glaze
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line an 11x7 pan with tin foil (or spray with pan with cooking spray).
  2. Apple Filling
  3. On med-low heat, cook apple filling mixture for about 3-4 minutes. Pull off heat and allow to cool.
  4. Blondies
  5. Cream butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add in brown sugar and granulated sugar, and mix until well combined.
  6. Add in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
  7. Add in salt and vanilla extract. Mix until combined.
  8. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and cinnamon together. Add to the wet ingredients and stir until combined.
  9. In the bottom of the pan, spread half the blondie batter evenly, using a spatula (or your hands--batter is very thick, so I prefer to spread with my hands).
  10. Spread apple filling all over the layer.
  11. Top with remaining blondie batter and spread evenly.
  12. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean.
  13. Maple Glaze
  14. Melt butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and cinnamon over low heat. Once melted together, pull off the heat. Sift in powdered sugar, and whisk until fully combined. Allow to cool for 8-10 minutes so the glaze can thicken.
  15. Allow bars to cool for about 10 minutes, then pour the glaze over the bars and allow it to set.
  16. Slice into squares and enjoy!

    These look so delicious Michelle! I want to come make these with you and Lacey and cuddle up under a blanket and watch friends now with a pumpkin spice latte!!

    Oh I love maple glaze, and apples, and blondies! These look so delicious, Michelle. They sound totally acceptable for breakfast too, I’d love one of these right about now!

    • Michelle says:

      Yep! I use that size because I like my blondies extra thick! You could probably use a bigger sized pan, but the blondies will not be as thick, and the cook time will be a little less (the exact amount, I’m not sure of), so you will need to keep an eye on it to make sure they do not burn! 🙂 Enjoy!

    I am curious to know what sort of apples you used? I tend to use Granny Smith in baking so that the tart cuts the sweet a bit, but just wondered what everyone else is doing? 🙂

    • Michelle says:

      Hi Mehgan! I love using either Granny Smith apples or Honey Crisp apples! Similar to Granny Smith, Honey Crisp are a sturdy apple and stand up well in baking. They are sweeter than Granny Smith, which sometimes I prefer if I’m in an extra sweet mood! 🙂

    Hi, I was getting ready to make these when I read in the instructions that there is cream in them but there is no cream in the ingredient list. Help!!

    I made these for Christmas and they were so delicious! I probably would throw the apples in the food processor after they cook in the pan to get more of a paste, but flavor was killer!
