Apple Blondies are a regular request in our household. With hints of cinnamon, they are bursting with apple flavor.

It is difficult to get my daughter to eat fruits and vegetables by choice, so I sneak them in where ever I can. Blondies are the perfect dessert to customize with a variety of fruits, but apple is definitely my favorite.

The apples can be chopped by hand or in a food processor. You want the piece to be the size of the tip of your pinkie. You could shred the apples using a box grater, but I really like to see the apple chunks in the blondies.

The texture is a little more cake-like than chewy, and would be perfect topped with a sprinkling of powdered sugar or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Feel free to swap the apples out for another fruit or vegetable. I think this would be delicious with pears or even shredded zucchini or carrots. Let me know if you try a variation.
