Apple Butterscotch Squares

Makes 20 servings


  • 2 large Golden Delicious apples
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed or wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil or coat a 9 X 13-inch baking pan or dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cut the unpeeled apples into quarters, core them, and shred on the large holes of a box grater (the yield will be about 2 cups). Set aside.
  3. Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, flaxseed, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, applesauce, and oil until well blended. Stir in the apples.
  5. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Stir in the butterscotch chips.
  6. Spread the batter evenly in the prepared baking pan, and bake about 35 minutes, or until the top is golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack and cut into 2¼ x2½-inch pieces.
