Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch square pan. (For V-day, I used a heart-shaped muffin-tin pan, and reduced the baking time by 7 minutes).
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the applesauce, sugar, egg whites, and coconut oil until smooth. Mix in the soymilk and vanilla extract.
  3. Combine the cocoa powder, whole-wheat flour, Stevia, baking powder, and salt in a separate bowl; stir into the sugar mixture just until incorporated, being careful not to over mix.
  4. If adding walnuts or the chocolate chips, fold in now. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Dont overcook, because you want the brownies to remain moist.
  6. Cool, and cut into squares. Enjoy.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of chocolate chips you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. If you cannot find chocolate chips free from milk or other dairy in stores near you, look online.

Cooking Tips

  • It can be tricky to bake with sugar substitutes, since they are so much sweeter than regular sugar (as much as 600 times sweeter, in fact.) For this reason, you definitely cannot substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners 1:1. The other difficulty is making up for the volume you lose when you take out the sugar and replace it with a much smaller quantity of a sugar substitute. Do some research before you end up with some disappointing baked goods.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

  • Don't waste any egg yolks or egg whites left over from separating eggs. Both can be frozen and used later (ice cube trays come in handy here!)
