Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Preparation

  1. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

  4. Preheat oven to 350°.
