10 Minute Brownies
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup unbleached flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup finely-chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a 6 x 9 inch baking pan and set aside.
To a large bowl, add the applesauce, sugar and vanilla. Blend well. Stir in the chocolate mixture. Whip and blend well. Add the flour, baking powder and walnuts, and mix just to combine. Spoon the batter into the baking pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Be careful not to overbake the brownies or they will be dry. Let cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in a covered, airtight container in the refrigerator.
These will keep for a week or so. From Student's Go Vegan Cookbook by Carole Raymond.
