1/2 cup cake flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 egg whites
1 large egg
3/4 cup granulated sugar
6 tbsps unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsps vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
1 tbsp chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable cooking spray and set aside.
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.
Bake until just set and a toothpick in center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
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 a slightly chewier brownie, replace the 1/2 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.
