1/2 cup flour
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup firm-packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg white
6 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9 inch square baking dish with parchment paper, and be sure you leave plenty of paper sticking out of the dish.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, unsweetened cocoa, salt, and baking soda until well combined; set aside.
In a large heavy saucepan over low heat, melt the unsweetened chocolate and butter together, stirring constantly, until smooth; remove and let cool.
Once cooled, add the brown sugar, egg, egg white, applesauce, and vanilla extract to the saucepan, stirring until nice and smooth, then add the dry ingredients to the saucepan and stir until mixed well.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake in preheated oven for 22 to 25 minutes or until the brownies shrink away from the sides of the baking dish.
Remove the baking dish to a rack and let cool completely before lifting the brownies out using the edges of the parchment paper. Then peel the paper back and cut the brownings into squares to serve.
Makes 12 to 16 small brownies.
