½cupunsalted buttermelted & cooled to room temperature
1tablespoonvanilla or maple syrup
1tart applepeeled cored and chopped small (I use Granny Smith)
½cupto 1 cup Sea Salted Caramel Chips
optional: more Sea Salt on top of blondies
Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the room temperature melted butter and brown sugar together until mixed well. Add egg and vanilla and mix to combine. Add flour and mix until just incorporated. Fold in chopped apples and salted caramel chips.
Spread mixture into prepared baking pan so everything is even and level. Bake for 30-35 minutes. The center will not look wet anymore and edges will be slightly brown. Allow bars to cool before cutting. Lift out of pan by parchment paper ends and place on a cutting board and slice. For a special treat, serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream with some caramel sauce and devour!
