These brownies are so incredibly moist and rich but they still have little to no fat. Whenever I make them at my house, they're usually gone within a day or two. They can be cooked in almost any metal pan as long as the batter doesn't go any higher than 2/3s of the way up the sides but I usually use a 9 x 13 pan.They're great alone but taste even better reheated in the microwave for a few seconds with a dollop of whipped cream on the side.
- 1 cup applesauce
- 1 cup cocoa
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs (or 8 egg whites, I usually do two normal eggs and 3 or 4 egg whites)
- 4 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 cup marshmallows, nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit ect
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease pan or spray with pam.
- Combine applesauce and cocoa until smooth.
- Add sugar and beat until smooth.
- Add eggs gradually, making sure each one is thoroughly mixed inches.
- Add vanilla, flour and salt and mix until moist.
- Add any additions (nuts, fruit, marshmallows, spices ect.).
- Pour into baking pan and bake for 20-30 minutes depending on your oven. Try the toothpick trick at the 20 minute mark and if it comes up with only a few crumbs, the brownies are finished.
I thought these brownies were way too rich, i cup of cocoa seems like way too much, I would do more like 1/2 cupe
Delicious! I subbed all the sugar by 2 2 1/2 tsp of stevia powder, mixed into the flour (I used whole wheat). Used the cinnamon an paprika with dark chocolate chips. I'd never used paprika in a brownie recipe before... it adds an interesting dimension!!! Thanks for sharing :)
