Yield: 12 Servings
|½ cup||Cake flour; sifted|
|½ cup||Unsweetened cocoa powder|
|2 \N||Egg whites|
|¾ cup||Granulated sugar|
|6 tablespoons||Unsweetened applesauce|
|2 tablespoons||Vegetable oil|
|1½ teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
|1 tablespoon||Chopped walnuts (optional)|
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and salt. Mix well. In a large bowl, whisk together egg whites, egg, sugar, applesauce, oil, and vanilla.
Stir in flour mixture until just blended; do not overmix. Pour batter into prepared pan; sprinkle with walnuts.
3. Bake until just set and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
4. Place pan on a wire rack and cool for at least 15 minutes. Cut brownies into squares and place on a serving plate. VARIATION: For slightly chewier brownies, replace the ½ cup of cake flour with 7 tablespoons of all-purpose flour. Sifting is not necessary. Proceed with the recipe as directed. Also, instead of walnuts, try sprinkling brownie batter with chopped pecans or almonds.
