Apple Blondies with Walnuts
With golden raisins, unsweetened applesauce, and pumpkin pie spice this no-bake recipe for Apple Blondies with Walnuts is perfect for fall. They have just the right amount of sweetness; and thanks to the protein and healthy fats, they won’t cause your blood sugar to spike like crazy. If you’re someone who gets cravings for midday treats, then this recipe is for you.
To more closely replicate the look of a classic Apple Blondie, press the dough into a rimmed baking pan rather than rolling them into balls. Once your Blondies have chilled, slice the dough into squares and store in an airtight container.
Not a big fan of raisins? That’s ok. You can omit them or swap them for an equal amount of another dried fruit. You could get creative and sub in ingredients like shredded coconut, or use dried apple pieces to make Double Apple Blondies, chopped dried apricots will get you Apricot Apple Blondies, or use cranberries to create Cranapple Blondies.
