Fat-free Low Calorie Chocolate Brownies

Is it possible for a brownie to be "healthy"? Doug and I are trying to eat a little healthier, but we had a "hankering" for some brownies. I came across this recipe here and it turned out pretty good... it met out needs anyway. :) We've just had to exercise a lot of self control in not having too many! :)

Fat-free Low Calorie Chocolate Brownies

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup non-fat dry milk powder
  • 1 egg white, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp powdered sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly coat an 8 x 8 x 2-inch pan with cooking spray; set aside.

In large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, salt, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon; set aside.

In medium bowl, beat the sugar, brown sugar, non-fat dry milk powder, egg white, applesauce and vanilla with a spoon until well combined. Stir wet mixture into dry mixture, mixing just until moistened.
