TWD: Applesauce Spice Bars

I'm back! I missed TWD (and baking) so much! I've got the basics put away in the kitchen and was itching to get back to baking, so these were the perfect things!

This recipe was super simple to throw together and didn't require anything I didn't have. I left these super basic: just the main ingredients and the chopped up apple, I didn't didn't make the glaze for these because 1. I'm not a big glaze/icing fan and 2. I didn't want anything getting into the simple taste of these awesome bars.

And awesome these are! I really like the simple, sweet flavor of these. They hit the spot perfectly and would make an awesome fall treat. I will definitely be making these again.

These bars were picked by Karen of Something Sweet by Karen, check out her blog for the recipe. And make sure to check out how all the TWD members handled this recipe.

i liked them with and without the glaze. i actually didn't think they really needed anything extra... except a little ice cream! i loved how simple these were to make and yours look wonderful. :)

I skipped the glaze. I'm beginning to think I shouldn't have. Yours look yummy!

I made a similar cake last year with our apple pickings - it was fantastic with a little caramel drizzled on top.
