♥ Skinny Double Chocolate 'Brownies' ♥

Recipe Note: If you choose to not use truvia, just double the sugar to 1 full cup sugar.


1/2 (4 oz) cup natural applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
4 packets truvia
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
Bakers Joy


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch cake pan with Baker's Joy.

In a medium mixing bowl, using a sturdy whisk or spatula, mix the applesauce, vanilla, egg whites, sugar, and truvia together.

Add the flour, wheat germ, cocoa powder, espresso powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder. Stir the mixture until it is just combined and no lumps remain. Pour it into the prepared pan.

Bake for 12 minutes at 350 degrees. Quickly remove from oven and sprinkle with the mini chocolate chips and then return to oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes more, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry, a few crumbs are ok.

Transfer the pan to a cooling rack and allow them to cool 5 minutes. Cut into 9 equal brownies.
