Apple Cinnamon Bars

We have some apples around that needed to get eaten... and this was a delicious way to use up apples that no longer have that crunch to them.

You know you have a few in your fridge too... right?  Pull them out, whip up a batch of these bars and enjoy a warm slice -- perfect with homemade vanilla ice cream, if you wish :)  

Apple Cinnamon Bars - Adapted from Eat at Home
{Print Recipe}

4 T butter, melted
4 T applesauce
3/4 C sugar
1 egg
2 medium apples, chopped
1 C white whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 T cinnamon

Peel and dice the apple into small pieces.

Combine the melted butter, egg and sugar together in a large bowl.  Then, stir in the apples.

Sift together the flour, cinnamon, salt, soda and powder.

Incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ones; stir until moist.

Pour batter into a lightly greased 9x9 glass baking dish.

Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.




  1. I have been so happy this year to discover that I can make pies, cobblers, muffins with whole wheat flour and they actually taste better than with white! So wholesome, less guilt. :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. Yes, I had some apples that needed to be used, so, since my oven was warm, I made these. They were yummy. The recipe you posted did not post the amount of sugar but I figured it out by the link you provided from Eat At Home. Very yummy! Just had one fresh out of the oven!

  3. This looks very similar to an apple cake that I love to make. I'm excited to try this version, thanks for the recipe!

  4. Looks like a delightful afternoon snack!

  5. Yum! I want to try this tomorrow afternoon. :) Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Apples, nuts and cinnamon make these bars delicious. They hardly last a day at my house!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
