"The first time I had these I thought I had died and gone to heaven... This recipe is in the Top 5 for my FAVORITE desserts... Add a scoop of French Vanilla Ice Cream on top of one of these YUMMY brownies when they are warm, is the ULTIMATE in desserts in my opinion! 1-23-08 I did make an adjustment on this recipe. It should have been an 8x8" pan not a 9x13"... No wonder they were coming out crumbly! Also, I use 2 med. McIntosh apples for mine."

"These were so delicious! I was doubly impressed by how quick and easy it was to mix up the batter. Start to finish, including chopping the apple, took about 10 minutes. I wasn't quite sure what to look for in terms of doneness. After 35 minutes it was brown, but I wasn't sure if it was from the cinnamon. I stuck the middle several times with a toothpick and it came out clean, so I took it out. When served, it tasted cake like which was delightful! I served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. My mom said I definitely needed to make this recipe a lot more and my dad gave it 5 stars...quite a compliment! Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"This really is a winner. If you like apple pie, you'll love it. Everyone liked it at our Mother's Day dinner and I had a couple of requests for the recipe. As suggested, I served it with vanilla ice cream. I think it would have been even better if it was still warm and will try that next time. I doubled the recipe, using butter instead of margarine, 2 tsps of cinnamon, 2 Macintosh apples and pecans instead of walnuts. It took 35 minutes in a glass 9x13 pan. I think the instructions could use more explanation for newer cooks. I followed the patterns I've learned for similar recipes, creaming the butter and sugar with a hand mixer, then adding the eggs, then the dry ingredients with 1/2 of the floor, incorporating it well before adding the rest of the flour, finally stirring in the nuts and apples. The consistency is like a chocolate chip cookie dough (minus the choc chips) with apples mixed in. It's really easy to throw together and is a nice change from my other dessert recipes."
"My DD, who ONLY eats desserts with chocolate, asked for thirds. 'Nuff said!"
"Fast, easy and delicious! Only took about 18 minutes for 9x9 pan at 350 degrees. One medium size Gala apple was just about 1 cup chopped."
"I have made these several times now, and all I can say is these things are addicting! Don't know what happened when others made them, but they came out very much like brownies for me using an 8x8" pan. I can imagine a 9x13" made them way too thin and crispy. They are perfect now! I added more nuts than called for and used 2 big juicy apples and just threw them in. Worked great. We will be making these again real soon. We had them covered with vanilla ice cream, and they were awesome!"
"I made these this afternoon (I had a couple of apples that needed to be cooked with or thrown out next week). Mine came out more like a cake (which is fine) but I was expecting a dense texture. I left out the nuts (my kids school is nut free and wanted them to be able to take them). I swapped marg. for butter - I am going to play with this recipe, but a great start for what I'm after, thanks for posting."
"Delicious! Thanks for sharing!"
"It's very sweet. A small piece is more than enough."
"Very good.. I used butter which made it very rich but I loved how it was so quick and easy to put together! I also used a mcintosh apple"
"I have these baking in the oven right now, and have never made them before. They smell amazing! I mixed these up with the help of my 2 and 4 year old. I will most likely not rate these out of fairness, since I had to make a major substitution. I have had to quit using butter due to a milk protein intolerance in my nursing infant. I substituted coconut oil for the butter, which I do in all types of recipes with fantastic results. It does change the consistency of the final product though. The melting point of coconut oil is 85 degrees, so when I mixed in the eggs (I should have known to wait for them to reach room temp) the batter seized up. I am sure they will turn out delicious but more dense than normal. I will update later when we eat them! Made them for A week during Mornings with Mommy!"
"TOP winner here! I only use butter, so this replaced the margarine as listed in the recipe. I used 2 Mcintosh apples, peeled and chopped plus the walnuts. The guys hung around in the kitchen smelling the wonderful aroma until the timer went off. We mmmmm-ed through each warm bite alongside vanilla ice cream. Now I wonder what your "other" 4 favorite dessert recipes are!"
"Yum, we liked these. I put them in too small a pan and had to bake them longer. Thanks for a different tasty recipe!"
"Really wonderful dessert. These were fantastically warm and rich from the cinnamon and apple combination. They are fluffier and less dense than I was expecting from the name brownies (more cake-like than blondie/brownie-like) but completely and totally delightful, nonetheless. A perfect fall dessert."
"Soooo yummy!!! This was a huge hit with all my picky eaters, and extremely easy for me! I used the apples I had on my hand, red delicious & golden. I will be making this often. Thanx!"
"AWESOME recipe! The brownies are so good!I used 1 medium Red Delicious apple & pecans instead of walnuts & cooked in my perfect brownie pan for about 30 mins & they turned out great! The husband has made me make them twice already in the last week & now his friends @ work want me to send some their way! Thanks for sharing!~"
"I used Macintosh apples. I added extra nuts (1 c.) All I can say is addicting! We ate them so fast my DS didn't even get one!"
"Delicious! I used butter and did not peel the apples (I used a Red Delicious). Thank you for posting!"
"These are to die for!! My husband declared these are his new favorite dessert. Delicious!"
"I have never heard of apple brownies before, so naturally I was intrigued. I tried them, they are super simple to make - the family loved them, i loved them, this is my new favorite. Thank you for sharing!"
"These went over very well. Everyone seemed to enjoy them. I baked in a 9x9 pan and they turned out fine."
