Tammy's Review: 

This is one of my favorite apple desserts! The "brownies" are so soft and moist, but not gooey or "raw" inside. They're easy to serve, and a great snack or picnic food, too. My mom makes these and is frequently asked for the recipe. She originally got the recipe from her former pastor's wife, Linda C. Quick, easy, and unbeatably tasty: definitely worth making!! My rating: 10/10

This is a wonderful and easy apple dessert!! Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy


This is a great recipe. Apple brownies are easy to make as well as tasty. My favorite part about the recipe is that rather than requiring frosting for on top it only takes powdered sugar and that makes it easier, yet it still tastes superb! These brownies are a must-try when the fresh apples are on or when you get a good deal on apples through the winter!


I made this for company last week, and one of the guys ate 3 pieces!

This would also make an awesome breakfast coffee cake with a crumb topping...


I have made these on two different occasions and everyone LOVED them! They are not too sweet but make a perfect dessert and the apple chunks through the brownies taste so yummy!
