How About Them Apples
These brownies are not that high in sugar, low carb and enjoyable. You might want to add 3/4 cup of peanut butter to the batter if you want to make a PB & Chocolate combo brownie. I love putting brownies in the fridge, I find that that makes them taste much better. The original recipe on Desserts with Benefits played up the use of peanut butter a bit more. To each their own!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, spray a 9" brownie pan with cooking spray, and line with parchment paper one way for easy removal later.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar in the raw, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large stand mixer bowl with beater attachment, add the applesauce, egg, almond milk, stevia extract and vanilla. Mix on medium-low speed until combined.
  4. Turn off the mixer and dump in the dry ingredients. Mix on low speed until fully incorporated, then scrape down the sides of the bowl. Increase the mixer speed to high to get rid of any clumps. Once the mixture is smooth, gently fold in the almonds by hand.
  5. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for ~38 minutes, or until the center springs back when tapped (if you want a more "set" brownie and less fudgy texture, bake for ~5 extra minutes). Let cool in the pan, then slice and serve!
