2 dozen (serving size: 1 brownie)

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

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

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.

Yummy brownies, but very chocolatey and sugary; you could easily decrease the 2 and 1/2 cups sugar. So much chocolate you really lose the distinction between the two types of baking chips.
