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 (optional)
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
    Butter-flavored cooking spray

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8×8 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 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.

Note: Espresso powder adds NO coffee flavor to the brownies

    I used two whole eggs instead off egg whites. I used a little less than 1/2 tsp of instant coffee and baked 22 mins. They came out perfect. Very chocolately and fudgy in texture. - 10/9/09

    So good! If you leave out the chocolate chips, the calories do go down to 89 calories per serving based on 12 servings per batch. You won't even miss the chips, these are so gooey and chocolatey on their own that one will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth! - 9/16/08

    I have tried EVERY diet brownie recipe there is (black bean, pumpkin & box mix, etc.) and this one is by far the BEST! These taste wonderful and you get a decent sized piece, so rich that one will do. YUMMMMM! - 6/26/08

    YUM! I used Truvia for half the sugar and pumpkin puree instead of the applesauce. I also omitted the choc chips - didn't feel they were needed and they are plenty chocolatey and rich. Next time will replace all the sugar with Truvia. Right now-they came to 59 cals each. Thanks for the recipe! - 11/17/08

    Fantastic! I used Splenda Baking Blends instead of sugar (1/2 cup) and left out the espresso... for an extra special treat, use Andes choc mint bits instead of choc chips on top (same calories!). For extra smooth brownies, add 1 Tbsp unwhipped whipping cream. (87 calories per brownie!!) - 10/24/08

    First time I made them, I used Splenda, but followed the rest of the recipe. They were dry and very bitter. I tried again using sugar, 1/2 the cocoa, and more applesauce, and they are delicious! Hard to believe they are so lo cal! - 7/15/08

    These were great and will make again for sure. I used half sugar and half splenda. I also placed a 8- half tbsp's of red. fat pb on batter in pan, then sprinkled w/ chips. The brownies were very moist and chocolatey. Did not taste chalky or low cal, low fat. I also used whole wheat flour. Delicious - 6/24/09

    I was amazed at how good these actually were. I was skeptical to say the least, but they surely surprised me. I would make them again, without hesitation. - 6/9/08

  • I had high hopes for these guys because of the overall rating. I feel like it's lacking something, but I can't out my finger on it.....maybe it's ingredients that are bad for you ;) Oh well, I'm new to this healthy eating. I will eat them, but I'm not sure I will make again - 10/9/13

  • I liked that they had a nice brownie-like texture, but I used Special Dark unsweetened cocoa powder and I think that might have been why they didn't seem very fudgy or chocolatey to me. I'll try them again with regular unsweetened cocoa powder and see if they turn out better for me. - 2/8/13

  • 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

  • 5 out of 5! My kids 13, 11 and 4 and I loved these brownies. I used 2 eggs like Beverly did and used cinnamon flavored applesauce & I added 1/4 cup of crushed flaxseeds! Awesome brownies will definitely make over and over! - 7/22/12

  • These were delicious! So fudgy just like a good brownie should be! Nobody new they were low calorie either. I didn't use the espresso powder,chocolate chips or salt and they turned out beautiful, thankyou so much for sharing this recipe! I added in some nuts for extra crunch!

  • Tastes great! Wouldn't think it was diet!I made it using half splenda and didn't add choco chips- didn't miss it at all!I did however make 9 servings from the batch instead of 12- made brownies 77 calories each and a nicer portion size. Brownie was very cake-like. - 6/27/12
