Sticky Applesauce Brownies

To sum it up, this low fat brownie recipe is a ooey, gooey, sticky, chocolaty treat. I found the original recipe at, but I changed it a bit from the original mainly because I didn't have enough cocoa powder in my cupboard. To compensate for the lack of cocoa powder, I added 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon and 1 Cup of semisweet chocolate chips, and I also used one egg rather than two egg whites. Make sure you allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting into them, otherwise it's too sticky too handle.
