Welcome to the Chocolate over chocolate and more chocolate party!

I bet you know by know my love for chocolate so I think in a way this party doesn’t come as a big surprise.

If you’d like to know upcoming party themes join our Facebook Group

Each month we’ll decide upon 1 specific ingredient and combine it with chocolate to make an irresistible treat.

For the month of September we’ve decided upon apples.

honey crisp apples

I got some beautiful honey crisp apples from the farmer’s market.

They were just perfect for September chocolate party.

These flourless apple brownies recipe came to life after a couple of trials.

I wanted a chocolate apple pie but after my first attempt we ended up eating it from the pan.

The second time I managed to get it out and even slice it but something was just not perfect.

Both me and hubby loved the filling but the crust, let’s just say, it needed a little more work.

And then it hit me!

Instead of figuring out the crust I can make the filling even better.

And better I did!

Melted chocolate, butter, sugar, eggs and diced apples.

Hello fudgy apple brownies! Where have you been all my life?


Flourless Apple Brownies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Yield: one 11X7 baking pan

Flourless Apple Brownies

Flourless Apple Brownies - easy one bowl fudgy brownies with bites of ground almonds and baked apples.


  • 1 cup (160 grams) baking chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons (28 grams) butter
  • 2 oz (56 grams) almonds or hazelnuts
  • 1/3 cup (70 grams) sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • pinch of salt
  • 1-2 medium honey crisp apples, diced


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line an 11X7 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan add the chocolate and butter. Melt over low heat stirring constantly. You can also use the microwave.
  3. Set aside and stir a couple more times until it starts to cool down.
  4. Add the sugar and salt and mix a little more. Set aside.
  5. In your food processor add the almonds or hazelnuts and pulse a couple of times, I didn't want mine to be perfectly ground, but if your prefer you can pulse few more times or add finely ground almond flour instead.
  6. Add the ground almonds to the chocolate mixture.
  7. Slowly add the eggs, one at a time, stirring as fast as you can to prevent the eggs from scrambling.
  8. When all the eggs are added to the chocolate mixture, pour it in the prepared pan.
  9. Spread the diced apples on top, gently pressing down and bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes.
  10. Leave to cool completely before removing and cutting into bars.

    Roxana, these sound wonderful, they look so moist and of course will no pie crust to get in the way, all that marvelous flavor of apple and chocolate can just shine through! Thanks for putting the party together, I can’t wait to see everyone’s treats! Pinned.

  2. says

    I would have NEVER combined apples with chocolate but they sure do look good. If I had been participating it would have had to have been my favorite crisp ever. Apples and booze (big surprise huh?). Not quite ready yet; still too warm here but soon, very very soon!

  3. Carol | a cup of mascarpone says

    Roxanna, the brownies look wonderful – and even better with the honey crisp – my favorite apple! I just joined the group – it sounds like so much fun! Carol

  4. says

    Roxana…what a GREAT idea to combine chocolate with other ingredients. Though I love chocolate covered apples….I wouldn’t have thought to typically combine chocolate and apples in baking. These brownies look AMAZING! Not sure if I will be able to get a recipe in this month…but I’ll try! Heading over to your FB page, too! : )

  5. Lisa says

    Apples and chocolate in baking is so under utilized, and what you did with them is out of this world!!! I LOVE them! That said..1) I need to get a chocolate dessert going for your party, and 2) NO way..your behind the apron series is so much fun! I loved seeing your kitchen! Beats writing a 20 part love story LOL

  6. says

    though i loveeee brownies, i have yet to try a flourless brownie version and now i am seeing yours with apples… it’s so different and obviously a wonderfully sneaky way of getting more apples into our system :)

    btw, that picture with apples in a basket is BREATHTAKING!

  7. Jessica Maher (@kbelleicious) says

    they look beautiful, i mean they sound amazing but they look beautiful! Love the bits of apples in them. A great way to make a brownie better for you:)

  8. Terra Baltosiewich (@CafeTerraBlog) says

    Okay I am totally loving this recipe, wow it is gorgeous!!! I am always fascinated by recipes like this, and how fluffy the brownies still look! I love baking with apples, so delicious:-) Hugs, Terra

  9. foodwanderings says

    Love this apple and chocolate combination going on here Roxana. I, don’t see that often. With the early apples this season it’s perfect to kick off the early fall season!

  10. Paula @ Vintage Kitchen says

    This are just amazing, can´t keep my eyes off them! And no flour! It´s so great that you put together the Chocolate Party, thanks for welcoming me!

  11. says

    You have all sorts of wonderful things going on here! First, the rich chocolate brownie with godiva chocolate looks amazing and I love that there’s no flour for a gluten-free friendly treat. Also I find flourless brownies to be so full of flavor that they’re much more satisfying than the ones with flour. AND I’ve never tried a brownie with apples in it – this sounds and looks great! Very lovely recipe!

  12. Megan says

    I just found your recipe through Closet Cooking’s Pinterest board and I am so excited that I did! My hubs and I have been living gluten-free (completely) for a few months now and I have been SOOO craving a good brownie! But that’s difficult to find and still stay gluten-free. I am so excited to try this recipe!! Thank you so much for sharing it :) And I love the idea of a chocolate party!

    Stopping by to say hello from Megz Messy Mealz :)

  13. Lisa says

    Yikes, why did I keep thinking chocolate and fruit?? So sorry about that! This time I’ll remember..chocolate + pumpkin lol
