Fall is in the air and that likely has you craving everything crisp: crisp leaves, a crisp breeze and yes, crisp apples. It’s time to put away the ice cream and popsicles and make way for warm pies, strudels and more!
Here’s a recipe you may want to try if you’re looking for a recipe packed with fall flavor: apple cinnamon “brownies” (aka blondies). They are the perfect way to incorporate seasonal additions into a delicious treat.
The recipe from That Skinny Chick Can Bake will serve as your guide for mixing up apples, cinnamon, butter and brown sugar to yield something unexpected and delicious.
Once all of the ingredients are combined, all you have to do is bake it in the oven for 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the size of the apple chunks. Once you slice and serve, you can break out the ice cream and eat these a la mode if you want. Otherwise, enjoy with a mug full of apple cider!
The best part about this recipe is how customizable it is. You can use any type of apple you’d like, be a little heavy-handed on the cinnamon and even add walnuts, as Martha Stewart suggests. Get creative and make something truly yummy!
If you’re looking for more unconventional ways to bake with apples and cinnamon this season, consider trying out these recipes once you’ve devoured those “brownies”:

Instead of making another batch of banana bread, switch things up and try apple cinnamon bread from Marsha’s Baking Addiction instead! The addition of Greek yogurt makes this bread super-moist and easy to enjoy with cider, coffee or whatever your warm fall beverage of choice may be!
Let the baking begin! What new way will you be enjoying apples and cinnamon this fall?
