brownie bites

dairy-free brownies

here's a basic brownie. the girls loooove brownies. for a healthier version, i've been meaning to try substituting the oil with applesauce.

ingredients:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tspn baking powder
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (update: or 1/4 applesauce & 1/4 oil)
  • 1/2 tspn vanilla extract
  • powdered sugar (optional)
directions:
1. heat oven to 350 degrees
2. mix all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
3. pour in all the wet ingredients. mix well.
4. pour into a square 8"x8" pan or mini cupcake pan
5. baking time depends on your pan. 30-35 min for square pan;  20-30 mins for mini cupcakes. i usually just watch it.
6. let cool then dust with powdered sugar or decorate with colored frosting
