Guilt-Free Fudgy Brownies

Recipe by  

"The only thing better than the taste is the fact that they are FAT FREE! They're a snap to make and the results are fantastic. I'm a health nut, always on a quest to create healthier treats, and these brownies taste as good, if not better, than the 'real thing.' Serve warm with fat-free frozen yogurt or top with fat-free whipped topping for a scrumptious chocolate dessert."

Original recipe makes 16 brownies Change Servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment.
  2. Stir flour, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, sugar, and baking powder together in a bowl. Whisk milk, applesauce, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl; pour into flour mixture and stir with a fork until just combined into a batter. Spread the batter into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Whisk brown sugar, remaining 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and hot water together in a bowl until the sugar and cocoa dissolve; pour over the batter in the baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 40 minutes; cool brownies slightly in pan before cutting to serve.

Okay so I was a little Leary on trying this based in the reviews, but really wanting something sweet that I could eat with no eggs I gave it a try. My husband and I liked it very much. What I did different was doubled the recipe. And then yes it was soupy until I turned it over onto a cookie sheet then the bottom because a great topping for the brownies. Knowing this now I will make them again. I think that part was left off the original recipe.

There was way too much liquid! I poured on the brown sugar, cocoa and water and it didnt dissolve. Itboiled the brownies! Poured out about1/2 cup of liquid after itbaked!

The brownie part never baked, after leaving in an extra 5 minutes. Next time I will spray the pan, and line it. The topping seem to run under the parchment paper. I use it as a pudding cake; cut the top into squares and spoon the liquid batter over the top.
