I have tried a few healthy alternative brownie recipes and this is hands down my favourite, yummiest and most simple.  Slice up and put an extras in the freezer so not tempted to eat more and have some great school lunch snacks and weekend treats.

Apple Slice

This Apple Slice uses only few ingredients, it’s really easy to make (and even easier to eat)!

Ingredients

2 cups self raising flour
1 cup sugar
3 apples, peeled, cored and diced (1cm)
125g butter or margarine
1 egg

2 drops Cardamon Essential Oil

3 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil

Directions

Toss apples with self raising flour and sugar in a medium mixing bowl.

Melt butter in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a small bowl in the microwave. Stir in egg.  Add in Essential Oils.

Pour butter and egg into the apple mixture and mix until combined.

Spoon into a greased and lined slice tin.

Bake at 180 C for 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Keeps for about 3 days.

Bake and Freeze, perfect for school lunches or snacks.
