Directions

Makes 16 (2") brownies

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 8 inch square pan with olive oil. Set aside.

Place the honey in a large glass measuring cup, Microwave on high power until the honey is runny and just bubbling, 45 to 60 seconds. Add the cocoa and stir with a fork until well combined. Let cool to room temperature.

In a small bowl, place the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Whisk until well combined.

In a large bowl, combine the applesauce, oil, egg, and vanilla. Whisk together until well blended. Add the honey-cocoa mixture and whisk until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the liquid mixture and stir until no traces of flour remain. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake until the surface looks dry around the edges of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it, about 25 min. Do not overbake. Place the plan on a cooling rack and let cool completely before slicing into 16 squares. (Store the brownies in an airtight container at room temp for up to 3 days.)

    I truly enjoyed this recipe. I could easily make these over the others any day. It was moist and chocolately like described. The Nutrition Facts have the sodium content wrong. The measurements are sound. The site is screwed up. Even Jillian's recipe dictates that the sodium is only 63.6mg HTH others - 3/17/11

    I love these brownies. I make them with agave instead of honey and they rock. - 6/1/11

  • I really like these brownies. The original recipe in the MYM Cookbook includes 1/4 tsp. salt. These are a cakey, rather than fudgey, brownie but they are a very satisfying snack for under 100 calories. - 10/1/13

    I don`t see salt at all in the recipe....?? I don`t thinkI will try these, they sound like they would be gummy what with baking with honey and olive oil - 12/19/12

  • They were ok, but the serving size super tiny, More like 1 inch by 1 inch, not 2X2. Pretty sweet, but the honey taste lingered after baking. - 4/22/12

  • If you look at the nurtitional breakdown it shows that per serving it is .02 cups which would mean the recipe uses a third a cup of salt. I'm pretty sure that is not what you are suppose to use. I'm guessing a third teaspoon or a third tablespoon.

    First of all, how can the recipe say when to add the salt, but not tell you how much and then have 1,802.5 mg of sodium? Secondly, this had to be the most disgusting thing I ever TRIED to eat! I threw the whole thing in the garbage. - 8/25/10

    I take that back...I'm an idiot. Though I am curious as to why the sodium content is so high.... - 7/20/10
