    Double Chocolate Brownies

    c unsweetened applesauce
    1 t vanilla extract
    4 egg whites
    1 c sugar
    c unbleached, all-purpose flour
    c unsweetened cocoa powder
    t instant espresso powder
    t baking powder
    t salt
    mini chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
    butter-flavored cooking spray

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 x 8 inch non-stick cake pan with spray.
    In a medium mixing bowl, using a sturdy whisk or spatula, mix the applesauce, vanilla, egg whites and sugar until they are well combined.
    Add the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir the mixture until it is just combined and no lumps remain. Pour into the prepared pan. Sprinkle the chips evenly over the top. Bake the brownies for 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry (a few crumbs are okay).
    Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and allow them to cool 5 minutes. Cut into 12 equal brownies.

    Devin says...
    The addition of the espresso powder makes these brownies richer and more chocolaty tasting without adding calories. Just be sure you buy instant espresso powder.
    These brownies are great for your children's bake sales. No one will ever guess that they are healthier, so you'll be doing everyone a favor.
