Low-Fat Vegan Brownies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CookiesCupcakes

Brownies sweetened with applesauce and agave nectar. Also great for diabetics (if Dr. ok's agave as a sweetner).

I am always looking for the perfect low-fat, low-sugar brownie and although this isn't it, it is the closest I have found. Chewy and chocolaty. A little bit "spongy", but not dry like most without fat and sugar. I used as a base for a brownie sundae with low-fat, no sugar added ice cream (not vegan, I know , but a good diabetic friendly dessert). Made for Fall 2009 My 3 Chefs game.
