Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes
Total Time 1 hour


  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups apples, diced (a tart baking apple is best like granny smith)
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • 1 Tablespoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spray a 9 x 13 casserole dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar & 1 1/2 cup white sugar.
  4. Add eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, salt & baking powder, mix well.
  5. Add flour and mix again. Batter will be thick, don't worry!
  6. Add apples and walnuts (if desired) and mix well. Batter should begin to thin to more brownie like consistency.
  7. Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan.
  8. In a small dish, mix 1 Tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of apple mixture.
  9. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until brownie consistency then remove from oven.
  10. Allow to cool. Once cooled, cut into bars and devour immediately by itself or with a large scoop of ice cream!


This recipe is considered a "triple batch" but really it's the perfect amount! This recipe has been adjusted based on reader comments and reviews! So if a reader says DOUBLE or TRIPLE the recipe, DO NOT. The original recipe was in a 8 x 8 dish and this is much bigger (and more flavorful) in a 9 x 13 dish!
