1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup apples, diced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 Tablespoons white sugar
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a 9x9 square dish with cooking spray.
In a bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. Add egg, vanilla, cinnamon, salt & baking powder, mix well. Add flour and mix again. Batter will be thick, don't worry!
Add apples and walnuts if desired and mix well. Batter should begin to thin to more brownie like consistency.
Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan.
In a small dish, mix 2 Tablespoons sugar and 2 Tablespoons of cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of apple mixture.
Bake for 45 minutes or until brownie consistency then remove from oven.
