Ultradecadent Double-Chip Brownies

Ultradecadent Double-Chip Brownies

The only fat comes from egg yolks and baking chips. Using drained applesauce instead of oil or butter produces a surprisingly rich, moist brownie.

  • Yield: 2 dozen (serving size: 1 brownie)


  • 1 1/4 cups applesauce
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 none large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 none large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate minichips
  • 1/2 cup vanilla-flavored baking chips (such as Ghirardelli)
  • none Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350°.

Spoon applesauce into a fine sieve over a bowl; let stand 15 minutes. Discard liquid. Scrape drained applesauce into a large bowl. Add the sugar, vanilla, eggs, and egg whites; stir well.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, cocoa, and salt, stirring well with a whisk. Add to applesauce mixture; stir just until moist. Fold in chips.

Spoon the batter into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray, and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
