When you need that chocolate fix, these little low-fat brownies should hit the spot. Although not as dense as full-fat brownies, they're still full of chocolatey goodness, with no odd aftertaste, which some low-fat brownies seem to have. These are perfect for kids' lunchboxes or as an after-school treat.
We suggest cutting the end result into 16 squares for a modestly sized brownie, but one reviewer felt this yielded too small a brownie. Feel free to cut into 9 or 12 squares instead if you would like larger portions.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray an 8-inch by 8-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
Whisk flour, cocoa, baking powder, sugar and salt in a small bowl.
In a medium bowl, combine oil, applesauce, vanilla, egg and egg whites.
Gradually stir in dry ingredients to wet ingredients until well combined.
Pour into baking pan and bake for 20 minutes, until sides pull away from the edge of the pan.
Cool in pan and cut into 16 squares.
