Ingredients

Blondies:

  • 1/2 cup butter 1 stick
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup all purpose flour (130g)

Apples:

  • 3-4 medium apples chopped (peel or no peel -- up to you!) - about 1 lb or 3 cups chopped
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Streusel

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup large oats
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8" pan with parchment paper and spray with non stick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • For the blondies:In a large bowl, melt the butter. Stir in sugar. Stir in remaining ingredients (through flour). Spread into prepared pan.
  • Bake 15 minutes while you preparing the topping.
  • For the topping:Combine apples, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon in the same bowl you used to make the blondies. Microwave for 5 minutes on high. Stir and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon until crumbly (I use my fingers, but you could use a fork or pastry cutter).
  • When blondies have baked 15 minutes, spread with apples, and top the apples with the streusel. Press down gently. Bake another 18-20 minutes.
  • Place on a wire rack and cool to room temperature, then chill in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours before removing from the pan and slicing.

Notes

*For these photos I made a simple glaze to drizzle over. Simply combine 1 tablespoon milk with 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and stir in 1 tablespoon of powdered icing sugar at a time until you reach desired consistency (I used 4 tablespoons).
