Here's a really great recipe from the archives. (Yes, I sent it in
but the original recipe was by Lorraine Brookes.) Anyway, it got lots
of rave reviews at the time and since somebody mentioned a fatfree
brownie mix, I thought that some people might like to bake from
You can also add your favorite extracts (I like almond, others might
like coconut). Also it is possible to make these vegan.

These are so incredibly chocolatey and rich that you won't need icing.
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup unbleached flour
1 to 1 1/2 cups sugar (1 cup works just fine)
2 egg whites ( egg replacer for 2 eggs )
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 Tbsp kahula
1 Tbsp peanut butter
walnuts (Lorraine's recipe called for them, I didn't use them)
Spray 8 x 8 pan w/ Pam. In medium bowl, sift together cocoa, flour,
baking powder & salt. (measure ingredients before sifting)
Combine peanut butter with kahlua warmed in the microwave. It
will be kind of gluey.
In large bowl, mix kahlua/pb with sugar. It will be kind of
crumbly and won't mix entirely.
Wisk in egg [replacer] , applesauce & vanilla.
Combine flour mixture w/ egg mixture. (Add nuts, if using them)
Bake 35-40 minutes @350!
NOTES: I had success with EnerG egg replacer.
Also, this time I replaced 1/4 cup of the flour with
the same amount of the King Arthur White Wheat.
(Didn't want them to be too heavy)
Also worked with decreasing applesauce slightly and using only
1 cup sugar. (Great but not fatfree with walnuts.)
