I have not made these brownies in a long time. I thought they were cake brownies since there is a frosting recipe that goes with them. But they turned out dense, decadent and too rich for frosting. I used coconut oil in place of the butter, which gave these brownies a pleasantly subtle coconut taste. The whole pan was gone in just a couple of days!
4 one ounce bars of unsweetened chocolate
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup applesauce
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup GF flour blend (I used this one)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan with cooking spray, set aside.
Melt chocolate and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until chocolate is melted and smooth. Remove from heat and pour into a large mixing bowl. Add the sugar and mix well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour and stir until blended. Spread into the prepared baking pan. Bake 30 - 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack, cut into squares and serve.
