Vegan Apple Butter Blondies


These vegan blondies made with apple butter and loaded with caraeml bits and pecans are the ultimate in flavor! These have dried apple chips too in it making extra APPLE-ICIOUS! This is a must for blondie lover as well as apple lover. Serve with vanilla, caramel, or dulche de leche icecream to get the experience of a trip to paradise!


Apple butter is nothing but cooked apples pureed with some spices and becomes creamy like butter. This can be used as a spread on toast similar to jam. Apple butter adds amazing sweetness and texture to baked goods like apple sauce. The resulting bake is very flavorful!

Apples are one of the most common fruits loaded with nutrients! They are amazing to eat as such!Or in many recipes. Sometimes, it is hard to finish up the apples when you trees are fully loaded with apples! Even after sharing! Whip up apple butter that can be made in slow cooker too. Store it in freezer and use in recipes like in this delicious blondie or this muffin


This recipe uses just not any pecan. Milican Pecans and these are the best pecans. The pecans add a delicious crunch and that makes every bite extra delicious. I love the flavor of these than any other brand. Click here to buy Milican Pecans. I can guarantee that once you taste this pecan, the rest will not find a place. You'll love these.


This is a perfect and tasty combination of ingredients. While baking this may rise and look like a cake, but it will seettle down to a perfect blondie texture after baking. The chewy caramel along with chewy blondie with crunchy nut bites, this is exactly heaven!


Commonly available caramel bits may not be vegan as they contain butter and cream. Vegan or dairy free caramil bits or chips are also available. Try to use them.

This recipe used dried apple chips ans is totally optional. This addes extra apple flavor and also extra shelf life. When using fresh apples, the shelf life may be less whencompared to the dried ones. For longer life, store in fridge. Pop it in the oven, sand serve warm blondie. Serve warm blondie with a scoop of icecream for an amazing trip to paradise!
