1/2 Cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 Cup sugar
2 medium apples, peeled and diced
2/3 Cup chopped pecans or nuts of your choice
1 Cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp. flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350° F.
Prepare your 9” x 9” baking dish by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.
For the brownies, in a medium bowl, combine the butter and the sugar. Whisk for 3 minutes. Add the egg and whisk until it is fully incorporated.
Fold in the diced apples and the chopped nuts.
In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
Add the flour mixture to the apple mixture. Mix gently to combine.
This creates a very thick batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it around the pan with a spatula.
For the topping – mix together the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add the melted butter and stir to combine.
The topping will have the consistency of sand. Distribute the topping evenly on top of the brownie batter.
Place the brownies in the oven and bake for 42 to 45 minutes.
Remove the brownies from the oven and allow them to rest for 30 minutes before cutting them into squares.
