“With so much chocolate flavor in the brownies and in the frosting, you'd never guess this version is actually healthier than the average brownie!” - by MakeItHealthy
Original recipe yields 16 brownies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8-inch square pan.
- Melt 1/4 cup butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and stir in white sugar, eggs, applesauce, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Beat in 1/3 cup cocoa powder, flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread into prepared pan.
- Bake in preheated oven until brownies are just set in the center, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Combine 3 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, honey, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and confectioner's sugar in a bowl; beat until smooth. Frost brownies while they are still warm.

"These were absolutely delicious! I will make these brownies again!..." See more"
"These brownies are pretty good! I prefer chewy brownies, these are cake like brownies. I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, and did not use the frosting. Instead of using an 8 inch pan I used a muffin pan..." See more, the mix made 9 muffins, baked for 14 minutes."
"These turned out YUMMY! Due to allergies that my daughter has, we made a few substitutions. I used Crystalized Fructose instead of sugar, Shortening instead of Butter, Brown Rice Flour instead of whea..." See moret. For the brownies, I used 1 tsp Maple syrup instead of Vanilla and I replaced the tsp of vanilla with 1/2 tsp Mint extract in the frosting. The frosting was a bit dry when mixing, so I added a small amount of applesauce...worked GREAT!"
