These chocolate applesauce brownies are so good and easy to make. Serve them with coffee as dessert or have one with milk anytime for a snack. They are wonderful with a scoop of ice cream and great to make hot fudge cakes. I am always looking for something to do with one cup of applesauce I have left in the refrigerator and this is a way to use it up.
Chocolate Applesauce Brownies Ingredients Needed:
White granulated sugar
Chopped nuts, pecans or walnuts, (optional)
We love these brownies because the applesauce make them very moist. You can top these with powdered sugar or leave it off. These are made in an 9X9 so it doesn’t make a huge pan of brownies. Perfect for a small occasion! Sometimes you just want a smaller dessert.

Chocolate Applesauce Brownies
These brownies are really good and simple to make.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup 100% cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 stick or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup white granulated sugar
- 1 cup applesauce
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts pecans or walnuts, (optional)
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl melt the butter and chocolate chips together in the microwave or on top of the stove. I do mine in the microwave and it takes about one minute.
Remove and stir the butter and chips till smooth, then add the applesauce, vanilla and combine with the flour mixture. Stir in the eggs and nuts. Spray a 9 x 9 baking dish. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes until center tests done.
