Fudgy Chocolate Brownies
Nonstick cooking spray
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon instant coffee
1/3 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 egg whites
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick spray. In a mixing bowl, combine the cocoa, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Mix well.
In a small-quart boiler, bring the water to a boil. Remove from heat and add the coffee; stir to dissolve. In a small bowl, combine the applesauce, vanilla and egg whites. Mix well. Add the coffee mixture and mix well. Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and mix well.
Pour the mixture into the prepared dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edges to loosen. When cooled completely, slice into 2-inch squares and serve.
