What does one do when your uncle sends you home with a bag full of apples? Get creative with Apple recipes of course!

I’d recently made some delicious gooey Chocolate Brownies (recipe is here) so I was inspired to make something similar but with apples… A bit of experi-baking and I came up with these Apple Pie Blondies! Perfect for dessert or afternoon tea.

Recipe Type: GF, DF, RSF, V

Serves 10-12 Brownies (or less if you slice them bigger!)
Time 40 min


10 – 12 Blondies


  • 1.5 C cooked chickpeas (or other cooked lentil/pulse)
  • 1.5 C chopped apple pieces
  • 1/4 C milk of choice
  • 1 T coconut flour
  • 1 T linseed meal
  • 2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t ground nutmeg
  • 1 T coconut oil
  • 1 t honey
  • 1/3 C walnuts roughly chopped
  • 1/3 C extra chopped apple pieces
  • Optional – 1 egg, not necessary but helps with consistency and binding. If you use an egg then these blondies would no longer be vegan.


  1. Preheat oven to 180degC and line a 20x20cm baking tin with baking paper.
  2. Using a blender, food processor or stick blender, blend together all ingredients except the egg, walnuts and extra chopped apple pieces until smooth.
  3. Transfer a mixture to a bowl, crack the egg (if using) into the mixture and mix through well.
  4. Add extra apple pieces and walnuts and stir through.
  5. Transfer mixture to baking tin and spread out evenly.
  6. Bake for 25minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
