Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup Organic unsweetened applesauce
  • ¾ cup Organic white sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup soymilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ½ tsp. Stevia
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
  • ½ cup Organic chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8×8 inch square pan. (For V-day, I used a heart-shaped muffin-tin pan, and reduced the baking time by 7 minutes).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the applesauce, sugar, egg whites, and coconut oil until smooth. Mix in the soymilk and vanilla extract.
  3. Combine the cocoa powder, whole-wheat flour, Stevia, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into the sugar mixture just until incorporated, being careful not to over mix.
  4. If adding walnuts or the chocolate chips, fold in now. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Don’t overcook, because you want the brownies to remain moist.
  6. Cool, and cut into squares. Enjoy.
