Recipe Ingredients for Lower calorie brownies

2/3 cup honey
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup Whole Wheat Flour

1 large egg
3/4 teaspoon vanilla

Recipe Directions for Lower calorie brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Spray an eight inch square pan with oil, set aside.

  2. Microwave honey on high until it's runny and just bubbly, about 45 seconds. Add cocoa powder and mix well with fork. Let cool to room temperature.

  3. In a small bowl, place flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.

  4. Combine applesauce, oil, egg and vanilla. Whisk together until well blended. Add honey-cocoa mixture and whisk until smooth. Add flour mixture and stir until no traces of flour remain.

  5. Pour batter into pan.

  6. Bake until the surface around the edges look dry, and a toothpick inserted in the middles comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it, about 25 minutes. Do not overbake. Let cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
