Autumn Apple Brownies

With the days feeling more and more Autumn like our minds have turned to comfort food and seasonal treats. We're huge fans of chocolate brownies here at HQ however although we would like to, they're not ideal for weekly consumption. Therefore we were pleasantly surprised when we stumbled upon this tasty, full of flavour apple brownie recipe over the weekend. Not only is it perfect for this particular time of year but it will also put great use to some spare apples we haven't gotten around to using....perfect!

Let's get started.....

Autumn Apple Brownies

Serves 12 | To prepare 15 mins | To cook 40 mins

  • 1 stick salted butter, melted and cooled, plus more to grease dish
  • 1 cup plain flour (all purpose)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 large firm- sweet apples, about one pound total, peeled, cored and cut into ½ inch tubes.
  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C ( 350 degrees) with rack in centre position.
  • Generously butter an 8x11 inch baking dish.
  • Whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. 
  • In a separate bowl beat together butter, sugar, and egg with a mixer until pale in colour (roughly 2 mins)
  • Add walnuts and apples, and stir by hand until combined.
  • Add flour mixture, and stir until combined, about 30 seconds more. 
  • Spread batter in pan, and bake for 40 minutes until golden brown and slightly firm. 
  • Let cool on a wire rack for roughly 30 mins, then cut into 12 bars. 

Tip* Bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days. 

We hope you enjoy!

Have a lovely Wednesday!
