Ingredients
  • ¼ c. unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 egg whites (I use two whole eggs instead, which probably ups the calorie count)
  • 1 c. sugar
  • ¼ c. all-purpose flour
  • ½ c. cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp instant espresso powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray (or whatever cooking spray you have on hand)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Spray an 8x8 inch cake pan with spray.
  2. Mix applesauce, vanilla, egg whites (eggs) and sugar until well combined.
  3. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, espresso powder (if using) and salt. Stir in the mixture until just combined with no lumps. Pour into prepared pan.
  4. Sprinkle the chips evenly over the top (I mix my chips into the batter).
  5. Bake for 24 - 26 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out dry.
  6. Nutritional info according to Devin Alexander: Each brownie has: 88 calories, 2 g protein, 19 g carbohydrates, 1 g fat, less than 1 g saturated fat, 0 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 133 mg sodium
Notes
You can double the recipe and cook it in a 9x13 pan. It'll take longer to cook - it took me 7 minutes of additional cooking time, but your time may vary, just make sure to test with a toothpick until it comes out dry.
