Preparation time: 10 minutes
Baking time: 25 minutes

Chewy chocolate brownies

Vegetable cooking spray
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1 whole egg
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 tablespoons oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8-inch square baking pan with vegetable cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and salt. Mix well. In a separate large bowl, whisk together egg whites, egg, sugar, applesauce, oil, and vanilla. Stir in the flour mixture until just blended; do not overmix. Pour batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle walnuts on top. Bake for 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the brownies on a wire rack for at least 15 minutes. Cut into 12 rectangles.
