Amazingly rich and chewy, you would never know these are low fat. I have people asking me for this recipe whenever I make it. The applesauce is the secret ingredient in these delicious brownies! One suggestion I have to make them fudgier is to use a very high quality cocoa. I usually use Watkins or Epicure Selections and found a big difference from that and the kind you can buy in the store. It makes them a real dark chocolate in the middle and they are rich and chewy! This recipe also doubles well and will fit into a 9x13 pan.
- Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl using a hand mixer. Add egg whites, applesauce and vanilla.
- Mix all other ingredients in a separate smaller bowl and add to the wet ingredients in the large bowl. Do NOT overmix!
- Spray 8x8 dish with PAM and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. ENJOY!
