Applesauce Brownies

When I have a chocolate  craving, but want something a little more healthy (I did say a LITTLE), I make applesauce brownies.   I first found the recipe for these when I was still at home and a bunch of those recipe cards came in the mail (you know the ones - where they want you to complete the set by buying more).  I made them and loved them.  The taste is different than a typical brownie.  Well, over the years I lost my recipe for them.  I searched online and found this recipe . . . which is exactly what I remember!!

7 T. flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 t. salt
2 egg whites
1 large egg
3/4 cup white sugar
8 T. apple sauce (preferably unsweetened)
1 1/2 t. vanilla
1 T. Walnuts (optional)

1.  Combine flour, cocoa, and salt; mix well.
2.  Whisk together egg whites, egg, sugar, applesauce, and vanilla.
3.  Add egg mixture to flour mixture.  Mix until blended, but don't overmix.
4.  Pour into a greased 8 inch pan
5.  Sprinkle with walnuts.
6.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
