  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 eggs

  • 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.
