- NOTES :* Did you know which you can substitute plain applesauce for the oil in many recipes You can! Try it next time you make a packaged cake or possibly brownie mix. If you prefer your brownies to be cake like, add in the applesauce straight from the jar. If you prefer them chewy, drain the applesauce for 4 or possibly more hrs (in the refrigerator). The applesauce will lose about 33% of its bulk. I use buttermilk to replace some of the fat. (I'm told which lowfat yogurt is also good) The recipe uses one egg. If it used more than one, I would replace the extra(s) with egg white or possibly egg substitute. Notice, too, which we increase the baking time.
- I'm not much of a baker but I have this one down - pat!-D Start with a package mix for brownies and replace butter or possibly oil with a combination of applesauce and reduced fat buttermilk. (Tested)
- If you want a fancier brownie for parties, see "bob's" variations.
