These were unexpected winners. Surprised at how moist (but not gooey) these were without shortening. I mixed the wet ingredients in blender then added this to the dry in the stand mixer. So quick to make. I added 1 tsp cinnamon and substituted dried mixed berries for the nuts. Don't know how I'll keep my mitts off these for the rest of the day.

Awesome! My mom loved the less fatty part. Didn't really rise at all, bitter taste, and not super specific instructions. Still, pretty good!

The recipe is easy to follow and very simple. It has a strong enjoyable coco taste. I used Nestle and I find it be less bitter than other brands. However to avoid over mixing and a light airy texture I added the sugar to the flour mixture not the egg mix. Then I broke the yolk into the applesauce and added the egg whites, just barely mix then add it to the dry ingredients. I also added cinnamon. It is good for an applesauce brownie, however if you prefer a fudge like texture this recipe is not for you. I took a photo but it want upload.

YUM!! I also added 1 tsp cinnamon... next time I will cut that amount in half as the cinnamon flavor really stood out, and I would rather have a stronger chocolate flavor. All in all, very yummy. My picky-pants husband didn't care for them, so more for me!!

My family loved them! I used the two egg method but instead of regular applesauce I used cinnamon. I think that took care of the bitter taste so many were complaining about. Also, I put as many organic products as I could (the applesauce, sugar, and eggs)

Good cake-like consistency, but very bitter. I think it needs more sugar and less cocoa.

Good flavor! I was surprised that I liked the slight applesauce taste to them, didn't think I'd be able to taste that. But unfortunately mine were kinda spongey and rubbery, I think that was just me, I think I under mixed the batter in fear of over mixing it! Nice, healthy, chocolatey brownie :)

We loved this recipe and ended up eating the majority of the brownies still warm from the oven! Instructions not to overmix batter were really helpful to avoid the rubbery texture you sometimes get with applesauce-moistened recipes. We also used two eggs, which worked really well (instead of an egg and two egg whites). Thank you for a tasty yet healthy treat, Jennika!

Used 3/4 cup eggs beaters and 8 tablespoons applesauce, no oil and no nuts. These were very good and chocolaty, almost bitter because they were so chocolaty. The were better the next day and I could taste the applesauce in them a little more. Overall a perfectly acceptable healthy brownie recipe to use instead of the fattening others. Thanks for sharing, will make often!
