Lowfat Brownies

1/2 C. unsweetened apple sauce
1 C. sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 C flour
1/3 C cocoa
1/4 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 C nuts (optional)

Blend apple sauce, sugar and vanilla in bowl. Add eggs, and mix well. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Blend into egg mixture and stir in nuts. Spread in a greased 9 inch square pan. Bake at 359* for 20-25 min. Double recipe for a 13 x 9 pan.

Variation--You can also use 1/2 butter and 1/2 apple sauce for a somewhat lower fat brownie, that still has the great taste of butter.
Variation 2--Try cinnamon apple sauce for a different taste.
