  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons (or brown sugar substitute)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
  • 1 cup healthy frosting (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line an 8x8-inch pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the applesauce, almond butter, and maple syrup and whisk together until smooth. Add the coconut sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt and vanilla extract and mix until just combined. Fold through the chocolate chips.
  3. Transfer the batter into the lined pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a skewer comes out mostly clean.
  4. Remove the brownies from the oven and let them cool completely, before adding the optional frosting.


  1. To store: brownies can be stored at room temperature, covered, for up to three days. If you'd like them to keep longer, store them in the refrigerator and they'll keep for at least one week.
  2. To freeze: place the leftovers in a ziplock bag and store them in the freezer for up to six months.
