It’s my last recipe to share with you for #AppleWeek! I hope you have enjoyed all of the recipes I’ve shared with you and checked out the links to the recipes from all of the other bloggers.

Peanut butter and apple pair together so perfectly. Originally, I intended to just make apple blondies, but I was looking through my pantry and the peanut butter chips caught my eye. While a fully stocked pantry can be a blessing and a curse, it totally came in handy for this recipe as I was able to make a last minute addition. Which took these apple blondies from tasty to out of this world.

One of my coworkers actually came over to me and asked if I was going to be selling these at the arts fair I’m in next month. When I said I wasn’t sure and he gave me an incredulous look and told me I better. Okay then!


To me, a blondie to be the sister of a brownie. It’s a sweet, baked dessert bar that is made with flour, brown sugar, butter, eggs, baking powder and vanilla. These blondies also include finely diced apples and peanut butter chips. Then a cinnamon sugar mixture is sprinkled on top before they are baked.



If you have an allergy to peanut butter or simply want to go another route, here are some other ideas:

  • butterscotch chips
  • caramel or salted caramel chips
  • white chocolate chips
