 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Cake flour; sifted
  • 1/2 c Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 lg Egg
  • 3/4 c Granulated sugar
  • 6 tb Unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tb Vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1 tb Chopped walnuts (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with
vegetable cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and salt. Mix well. In a large
bowl, whisk together egg whites, egg, sugar, applesauce, oil, and vanilla.
Stir in flour mixture until just blended; do not overmix. Pour batter into
prepared pan; sprinkle with walnuts.

3. Bake until just set and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean,
about 25 minutes.

4. Place pan on a wire rack and cool for at least 15 minutes. Cut brownies
into squares and place on a serving plate. VARIATION: For slightly chewier
brownies, replace the 1/2 cup of cake flour with 7 tablespoons of
all-purpose flour. Sifting is not necessary. Proceed with the recipe as
directed. Also, instead of walnuts, try sprinkling brownie batter with
chopped pecans or almonds.
