I love apples any time of the year, but right now they are crisp, juicy and absolutely perfect! My family can’t get enough of them!

This past weekend, I decided to get a little creative and make an apple crisp blondie that I just knew my whole family would love. It definitely didn’t disappoint!

These blondies are simple to mix up in just a few minutes and even while mixing them together your kitchen smells better than any fall candle ever dreamed of smelling!

I started with my salted caramel blondies recipe and changed it to incorporate all ingredients that make an apple crisp so delicious – apples, apple pie spice, and oats! Once it baked and cooled slightly, we decided to go even more decadent and top it with sliced apples, scoops of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of homemade caramel sauce.

Talk about scrumptious!

Here’s my Apple Crisp Blondies recipe. I think you’ll love it as much as we do!

  1. 4 stars
    Ok, you said spread batter in pan
    Next mix grated apples and spice, spread into pan.
    Does apples mix into batter? I am thinking yes,
    Just edit recipe.

    I have lost a wonderful tea cake style apple, golden raisans, and spice cake, was easy and good, anything like that, add on your site!

    I will bake these this afternoon
    Only did 4 stars because I havent actually tried this yet

    1. Ack! Thanks so much for catching that for me, Janis! The grated apples do mix into the batter. I sure hope you enjoy them!

  2. Yeah! An apple recipe. We picked the orchard yesterday….144 lbs of apples. I need more apple recipes. Already made three different recipes but not really impressed with any of them. Looking forward to trying this one.

    1. I’m so jealous of all those apples! We’re traveling back home today from a quick weekend trip and I’ve got to head to the apple trees (and the muscadine vines!). I hope the deer didn’t take care of them for me! 🙂

  3. We picked about 40 pounds of apples and made cider, sauce and I TRIED to make jelly. I don’t know what I did wrong, we even processed one batch twice and I just couldn’t get it right. They were good apples, though!

  4. How do you drain the grated apple? (“½ cup grated apple (about 1 medium), drained”) Not sure how to do that, so want to be sure I do it correctly, cause this recipe is definitely on my “to make” list! 🙂

    1. Hi Liddy,
      When I grated my apple to make these blondies it was so juicy that there was about 1/4 cup of juice! You don’t want to add all that liquid to the batter as it will change the recipe. I hope that helps! xo

  5. Robyn, these look insane! I love everything about them (except that I don’t have one in front of me right now of course)! 😉

  6. I don’t know how an apple dessert could get any more perfect than this. I just finished using up the last of my “pick your own” apples – looks like I will have to get more! 🙂

    1. Hi Eilana,
      I have not tried this recipe without oats but I think it would work. Hope this works for you. Thanks!
