  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8 inch square pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the applesauce, white sugar, egg whites and butter until smooth. Mix in the buttermilk, vanilla extract and coffee extract. Combine the cocoa, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder and salt; stir into the sugar mixture just until incorporated. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, but the brownies are still moist. Cool, and cut into squares.

These shouldn't really be called whole grain brownies as there is only 1/4 cup of whole wheat pastry flour in the entire recipe. Made as is, they are good, but light - much like a chocolate cake...

I made a few changes and it turned out great. I omitted the applesauce. I used the entire egg. Olive oil 1/4 cup instead of butter. Creme Fraiche instead of butter milk (I live in France). ...

These really are amazingly delicious. They have a very soft, velvety texture and are more like chocolate cheesecake than a chewy brownie. I didn't have any coffee extract so I just used 1/2 t co...

nice brownies with a sticky and fairly fudgy texture yer let down by there slightly bland taste.

This was actually pretty good and quite easy. I doubled the recipe and did an 11x8 pan so it took a while longer to cook. I also used all whole wheat flour and soy milk rather than butter milk. ...

Good brownie. For a healthier twist I used ground flax seed and water for the egg whites and all whole wheat pastry flour.

I like the idea of making treats and snacks for my family a little healthier, so I tried this recipe. My family loved it! I used chocolate chips but no nuts (some in my family don't like nuts)...

I used oatmeal flour instead of all-purpose flour, and they turned out great. Might want to use the whole egg and use 1/2 cup applesauce, though.

These were fabulous - I think the wheat flour added a great flavor to them, and I felt so virtuous (even though I ate almost the whole pan).
