Jazlyn made this lightly mint flavored yummy chocolate brownies. These brownies are not the gooey chewy kind. They are very moist, a little cakey, and very yummy. If you don't like mint in your brownies, you can omit it for traditional chocolate brownies.
Microwave Mint Chocolate Brownies
2/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp mint extract
1 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
Combine the sugar, applesauce, oil, vanilla, and mint. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, cocoa, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture then stir until thoroughly combined. Spread the mixture evenly into a sprayed 8x8 microwave dish. Microwave for 4-5 minutes or until set and the edges appear dry. Make sure that you don't overcook the brownies because they will dry out. Cool completely before cutting into squares.
* You can omit the mint extract if you want plain chocolate brownies.
My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 12 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.
