3/4 stick salted butter (6 tbsp)
1/2 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
8 ounces semisweet chocolate
Preheat your oven to 350 F. Grease a 9-inch square pan and line it with parchment paper. In a bowl mix together the flours, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda. In a second bowl combine the sugar, applesauce and egg. Melt together 6 ounces of chocolate and the butter (either in the microwave or using a double-boiler). Combine the chocolate with the sugar mixture. Gradually add in the flour mixture. Pour into the pan and sprinkle the remaining 2 ounces of chocolate on top - I actually used some milk chocolate chips instead. Bake for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
These are perfect with a glass of milk and could be made even better with some peanut butter chips or walnuts sprinkled in!
