Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oats (old-fashioned or quick-cooking)
  • 1 Tbs cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 2 cups peeled apple cubes (green apples work best, but any kind is fine)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Powdered sugar for garnish, optional

Directions

  • Beat the butter with the sugars until creamy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients, minus the apples, walnuts, and lemon juice. Stir well and add to the mixing bowl. Beat just until combined.
  • Combine the apples and walnuts and toss with the lemon juice.
  • Fold the apple-walnut mixture into the mixing bowl. Spread into a greased 13 x 9 casserole dish.
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely and cut into bars. Dust bars with powdered sugar, if desired.
