NOTE- Before someone tries to call me out and say there are FIVE ingredients listed, SPICES DON’T COUNT UNLESS A GIRL AND EITHER SCARY, BABY, GINGER, POSH OR SPORTY.

Off my soapbox now.

When I first started creating recipes on TBMW, I would usually eat it once or twice and then post it. It never really occurred to me that my taste buds would differ from other people.

DUH.

Over the last year or so, I’ve ensured to have others try out my recipes before sharing on the blog. What tastes good in my books might taste like punishment for someone else. The only exception to that is Alexis whom would eat a bag of pebbles if covered in hummus.

Just kidding, she’d eat it regardless.

I’ve been grateful to have Alexis in close proximity the last month or so and making the most of her presence for a little while longer. Outside all the soppy friendship, love, rainbows and hummus shenanigans, she’s also my taste tester and (unpaid) quality control officer. 

The 3 ingredient Pumpkin ‘fudge’? She tested it before posting.

The Banana bread English Muffins? She ate them cold, untoasted before posting. 

The Death by chocolate protein bars? She ate them BEFORE we feasted and ate more after. 

The 3 ingredient flourless brownies? Take a look at her ‘What I ate Wednesday’ eats.

The No Bake Salted Caramel Apple Slice? The story behind that is a bit too adult for this family friendly blog. ALEXIS MADE OUT WITH IT.

Before you roll your eyes and think she’s the ONLY level of quality control I’ve been going through before sharing a recipe, you’d be wrong. Alexis’s bestie/epic roommate, Nikki has been unfortunate forced to try out the recipes too. Because Alexis’s brain is 3/4 filled with brussels sprouts, I don’t always trust her judgement. With Nikki, this isn’t the case.

When I passed Alexis half a pan of these healthy 4 ingredient flourless apple pie blondies, she asked for the recipe the very next day. I clearly thought she was joking and told her to jump in a lake of hummus. When she told me NIKKI had enjoyed them, my ears perked up. Nikki’s feedback > Alexis’s feedback.

Okay, let’s be real here. Anyone’s feedback > Alexis’s feedback. Anyway regardless- You NEED to make these healthy four ingredient flourless Apple Pie Blondies.

These healthy four ingredient flourless Apple Pie Blondies are the quick, easy and delicious dessert or snack recipe to have on hand. These soft, fudgy and the perfect cure for your sweet tooth. Unlike traditional blondies, these have no white flour, butter, white sugar or added oils, but use the combination of fruit, spices, and a dash of maple syrup for sweetness. The spice mix I used is the same I use for apple pie style desserts which give these blondies a delicious apple pie flavor! These are suitable for most dietary lifestyles- Paleo, gluten-free, vegan, refined sugar-free and dairy free! Once you remove it from the oven, it will still look undercooked. Allow it to cool completely and for the absolute best taste, refrigerate and enjoy cold- The taste is beyond amazing. 

HACK! While they are delicious as they are (cold, from the fridge) they can be taken up a notch topped with the healthy salted caramel sauce from this recipe. I mean…the spillage.

Ingredients
  1. 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  2. 1/2 cup almond or cashew butter (Can sub for peanut butter if not strictly paleo)
  3. 1/4 cup coconut flour, sifted*
  4. 3-4 T pure maple syrup*
  5. 1 T apple pie spice (a mixture of cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg)
  6. Optional- Coconut palm sugar + apple pie spice to top to form a small 'crust'
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a baking tray**
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix very well until a very thick batter is formed. Transfer to the greased baking dish and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the tops are golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Refrigerate for at least an hour before slicing.
  3. Keep refrigerated.
Notes
  1. * Depending on the brand of coconut flour you use, you may need to add an extra tablespoon of coconut flour OR maple syrup to have the batter 'firm'.
  2. ** Your pan size does not matter- I only filled half a 9 x 9 inch pan and formed a rectangular shape.

  1. I am a broken record but need to say that you are killing me!

    Stefan tests all my stuff except for things with banana. But I take his opinion with a grain of salt. Some things – the portable usually – I bring to the office for further testing. With some things I just rely on my taste buds.

    I am cautious with the spicy recipes. I’ve seen people’s eyes nearly pop out of their sockets when I spice up my food with hot sauce. So I guess my tatse buds are not to trust in this case!

  2. I love anything with cinnamon in it during the fall. Apples are my favorite though! For the applesauce, can you use homemade or is unsweetened applesauce from the store better?

  3. These sound fantastic! Alex is my taste tester, when he is allowed. but years of working in restaurants taught me how to distinguish between my tastes and other’s. I know what I like but I’m also very proficient at cooking for others.

  4. Alexis has an awesome job as a taste tester, jealous! Im in love with apple pie everything so i wouldn’t mind eating this whole batch! My favorite spice right now is nutmeg and making egg-nog flavored things with it!

  5. Wait. Since when has this blog become “family-friendly”? That’s it. I’m stopping reading your blog right now. I only read adult-friendly blogs. Haha…just kidding! As long as you keep posting recipes with apples, I guess I’ll keep on reading. 🙂 NUTMEG!!!!

  6. Ahhhhhhh…my presentation must ,I can not stop myself,consider COLOR ( ie.my favorite long fall skirt for ehhh…. years)just saying ,so cashews/cranberries/grande mariner liquer(orange or limoncello)/ CHOCOLATE. cashew but but butter,yep.. I am thinking……muffin/quickbread(faster to grazing , the better)……arman,take my list & run,skip with it. Oooooooooomaybe a healthy baked donut? MSM

  7. What an honor!! I love taste testing all of your goodies! Thank you 🙂 Your blog is my go-to when I need something sweet, healthy, and easy! I’ve made the PB rice crispies, a couple mug cakes, and will be making these among many others! I’m so glad Alexis introduced me to your blog!

  8. Poor Alexis!!! Except that she gets to taste all your yummy stuff first. So I don’t feel so bad for her after all. These Apple Pie Blondies are amazing Arman. Just amazing. I love coming here and seeing what you are up to in the kitchen. These are gorgeous and yum! Have an awesome weekend!

  9. These look delicious! They might be making an appearance on Thanksgiving! 🙂 I pretty much trust my taste buds, but when in doubt I run it by my boyfriend, Anthony’s taste buds!

  10. Dear Arman, I always get a big kick out of you…I think my daughter would be in complete agreement with you about the spices…I know I am! 😉 …I have a feeling these blondies would be a lot of fun to eat…they look so gooey and delicious. Have a wonderful weekend my friend, Catherine

  11. I’m going to go ahead and say that these are definitely FIVE ingredient blondies… But I won’t press the issue so much since you didn’t call them brownies this time around 😛 And I subject my family and friends to my food experiments. Sometimes I wonder how I still have friends 😆

  12. Spices totally count as an ingredient and since you used three different ones, you’ve got three more ingredients. Hey, I just call ’em like I see ’em. Either way, they look and sound delicious.

  13. Depends on the day! If I’m sick or SUPER hungry that day, then I probably cannot trust my tastebuds. Otherwise, I’m pretty on point!
    LOVE the way the topping just drips off the soft blondies! YUMMMM!

  14. One thig I love about this recipe is that it is egg free. Not that I need to avoid eggs, but so many people do, and I’m terrible at coming up with egg free recipes. This looks like another great one from you, Arman.

  15. Hi Arman, I’m a new reader to your blog after finding you on Pinterest. First, everything looks delicious! Second, I’m gluten-free, but hate when other people think that all GF bake goods taste like cardboard–well maybe that’s just how I bake! lol Third, I’m so excited to try this 4-ingredient* (forget everyone who tries to tell you otherwise) apple bar recipe and so confident its going to be a crowd-pleaser that I’m entering it into my office’s healthy baking contest this week! Of course your site is getting all the credit! People who know me, know I’m not this innovative in the kitchen normally! I have many other recipes in the queue!
    Thanks!

    PS What’s the yield for this recipe above?

  16. O.M.G. You have just changed my life!!! I swapped a few ingredients. I was lacking in the spice dept. So I used cinnamon only and I’m embarassed to admit, but…no maple syrup in the house so I used agave syrup. And…boo ya! A little agave on top & they were uh-mazing!!! My sweet tooth is in love! Thank you!!

  17. Do you think I could sub casein protein for the coconut flour? Would you suggest any modifications if I did try it? Thanks!

  18. Hi! I am planning to try this awesome looking recipe tonight!! Even though it’s not even fall 🙂 Are you totally vegan? Because I am wondering what might happen if I added an egg to this?
    Thanks!

  19. Hi!

    I am currently on an elimination diet per the doctors orders (no gluten, dairy, added salt/sugar and many other things!) so I was excited to try your recipe today!
    I substituted the maple syrup for raw honey, the coconut flour for almond flour and the peanut butter for raw almond butter. Unfortunately mine came out tastey, but pretty flat and dry. I used a packed 1/4 cup of almond flour and had it in the oven for 30 minutes in an 8×8 pan.

    Would you have any ideas as to what went wrong? I’d like to make the recipe again because it looks so delicious!

  20. Hi, I made these exactly following the recipe and they had the best flavour but unfortunately they turned out really crumbly 🙁 Should I have baked them for less time or made the batter less thick?

  21. I made these yesterday and followed the instructions but was only able to fill a 9×9 pan about a half inch. Yours seem thicker. I also didn’t know the ratio for apple pie spice and figured my local bulk store would have it premade. They didn’t, so I settled for a pumpkin spice since I’m assuming some kind of “fall” seasoning would suffice. Regardless, they still turned out nice and tasty for being a healthy treat. I know its your motto not to sacrifice flavour so it’s great when it doesn’t feel like healthy food but it is. Again, something else enjoyable that will help me avoid sugar and carbs.

  22. just made these and holy wow. They are amazing. I used sunflower seed butter and honey so the taste was a little different, but either way they are amazing and will be getting me through midterms.

  23. These were so good and easy to make. I couldn’t quite get the crust to form on the top with the Apple pie spice that I sprinkled on before cooking (see photo on Pintrest). Any tips how to achieve the Apple Pie spice crispy top? thanks

  24. I sub half a cup of peanut butter powder, plus 1/4 cup water, instead or regular peanut butter/nut butter, and 3 tbs (plus one on top for the crust) of brown sugar instead of maple syrup. It brings the calories down from almost 2,000 calories, to almost 730! Love this recipe, it has become one of my favorites!
