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

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.
