Peanut Butter Apple Bars


We got our wedding gifts delivered last night. At the moment we live in a small apartment and don’t actually know where to put all of it! We can’t wait to get our own house and deck out the kitchen the way we want!
I can’t wait to have more space and set the kitchen up the way I’ve always dreamed of! My mom has a big open kitchen and it’s a great place to hang out in the house. What item or piece of furniture is essential in your dream kitchen?

I bought a cookbook when we went to the Apple Barn in Tennessee.
The bars were nice and  light but they could have used a little more umph like some chocolate chips and a few extra handfuls of apple slices.

Ingredients
1 egg
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk (I used soy)
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup sifted all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup chopped, peeled apple (add 1 1/2 cups for more flavor)
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 350 F/180 C and grease a brownie pan. Beat egg until light. Beat in brown sugar, add peanut butter, milk and vanilla; mix well.
2. Sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt; stir into peanut butter mixture. Stir in apples.

3. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes and cut into slices or rectangles. Top with icing sugar if desired! Alex wanted a slice before I even had a chance to sprinkle some on top.
My Brown Sugar Bear! Put in a tub of brown sugar to keep it from turning into a rock or in a Tupperware of your cakes to keep fresh!

  1. Next year we are taking a road trip through the US, I think it's a great idea to pick up local cookbooks like yours from Tennessee! Makes the trip last longer.
