I have other apple bar recipes like my tried-and-true Apple Cake that are thicker and more meal-like.

These bars are thin and light. They aren’t even heavy with apples, but the apple flavor is definitely there.

I used caramel chips for this recipe, but butterscotch or white chocolate would be great, too–or even seasonal sweet chips like pumpkin spice!

Equipment

  • 9x9 pan
  • medium saucepan

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 apple such as Ambrosia or Honeycrisp, peeled and chopped into raisin-sized pieces
  • 1/3 cup caramel chips or substitute butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 350-degrees. Line a 9x9 pan with foil and apply nonstick spray or butter.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt the butter, and continue to monitor a few more minutes, stirring often, to brown the butter. It should have a fresh, nutty smell. Remove from heat. Stir in the brown sugar and vanilla until the sugar is less grainy. Let the pan cool for a few minutes. Beat in the eggs until smooth. Stir in the dry ingredients next, followed by the apple pieces. Fold in the chips last.
  • Pour the batter into the pan and smooth out the top. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the middle passes the toothpick test.
  • Cool to room temperature. Use the foil to lift the contents onto a cutting board to slice up. Store the bars in a sealed container, with waxed paper or parchment between stacked layers.
