Ingredients

  • ¼ cup applesauce

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 2 egg whites

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • ¼ cup buttermilk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon coffee flavored extract

  • cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup whole wheat pastry flour

  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (Optional)

  • ½ cup chocolate chips (Optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch square pan.

  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the applesauce, white sugar, egg whites and butter until smooth. Mix in the buttermilk, vanilla extract and coffee extract. Combine the cocoa, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the sugar mixture just until incorporated. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.

  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, but the brownies are still moist. Cool, and cut into squares.
