Ingredients

  • Low fat cooking spray
  • 75g (2 3/4oz) self raising flour
  • 50g (1 3/4oz) unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 175g (6oz) caster sugar
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
  • 2 tbsp sunflour oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 15g (1/2oz) chopped walnuts

Method

  • Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180oc/fan oven 160oc. Spray a 20cm (8 inch) square non stick baking pan with the low fat cooking spray.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder and salt, stirring together to mix.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the egg, egg whites, sugar, apple sauce, oil and vanilla essence.

  • Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture, stirring until just blended. Take care not to over mix, or the brownies will not rise.

  • Transfer the cake mixture to the baking pan and sprinkle with the walnuts.

  • Bake in the centre of the oven until just set- about 25 mins. A toothpick or skewer inserted in the centre of the cake should come out clean.

  • Cool in the tin for 15 mins, then cut into 12 rectangles.
