Double Chocolate Brownies

Submitted by: IN2FITNESS
Double Chocolate Brownies

Introduction

The best brownies you'll ever eat! The best brownies you'll ever eat!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    4 egg whites
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 teaspoon instant espresso powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
    Butter-flavored cooking spray

Tips

For Valentine's Day, bake in heart-shaped cupcake tins or use a cookie cutter to form them into hearts.


Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 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 it 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. Makes 12 (1 brownie) servings.

    to get heart shape, can use muffin paper, fill it and put a marble on outside, it will indent enough to make a heart. :)

    We LOVE these brownies, I don't suggest subbing Splenda because, as my little guy told me, the brownies with splenda taste like "dirt". So, our first attempt did use the spenda, but every other time I have made them and there have been A LOT of times that I have made them, we use sugar. - 6/5/11

    Ran this recipe through the recipe converter and the nutritionals are definitely off. Per serving: Cal 108.1, sugar 19.2g, carbs 23.5g, sodium 234.9mg and fat 1.6g.

    I substituted Agave Syrup for the sugar to make it low glycemic and they were AWESOME. Definitely will make again. - 1/2/10

    I've been making this recipe of hers for years... LOVE IT! If you like chocolate and cherries try sticking two or three frozen tart cherries into each muffin before baking... delicious! - 11/23/09

    I have made this twice. The second time , I used half splenda and half sugar with dark chocolate cocoa. This cuts the calories more and tastes great! - 3/6/08

    Okay... let me just start off by saying this... brownies are my kryptonite! Now... that being said, these are the BEST "diet" brownies I have ever tasted! I'm glad I can FINALLY sit back and enjoy an old favorite without worrying about the pounds multiplying :D - 8/2/13

  • What if you don't have expresso? Is there something else you could substitute because I don't like coffee or anything that tastes like coffee? - 5/8/14

    HI,

    This looks a really nice recipe, but to pull you up on one thing - Number of Servings: 1 - surely this should read 12 ! ? - 6/21/13

    They did these same brownies on Dr Drew today but used the 24 mini muffin tin instead, so you ended up getting 48 little brownies and they were like 109 cal for 2. I'm going to make them that way, and see how they come out and then I don't have to worry how big I cut them either. - 8/28/12

  • These were great. I think its because it has splenda that's why the calorie count is at 88. - 7/24/11

  • This are ok but remind me of sponge cake. I am hoping that after sitting they will be more like a typical brownie but I really can not complain for the amount of calories. - 11/3/10

    Very good and chocolaty. Made with 2 whole egg, 3 egg whites, substitued splenda for 1 cup sugar, then used brown sugar for the rest. Was very good and extremely light in texture almost like the flourless chocolate cake recipes. I would definately make this one again. - 10/17/10
