This is a recipe for my favorite high fiber, macro friendly brownies. These brownies use all whole food ingredients and are wonderful!
Cut skinless Macintosh apples into wedges. Place in a covered pot with cinnamon and water. Boil for 10 minutes until the apples are soft (they are practically mashed).
Mash with a fork or potato masher. Set aside and allow to cool.
Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
Combine butter and raw honey. Heat in the microwave on low until melted (not more than a minute). Set aside and allow to cool.
When cool, mix in cocoa powder until smooth.
Add cooled applesauce and the remaining wet ingredients and set aside.
Coat an 8X8 baking pan with non-stick spray.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Place into the prepared 8x8 pan (coated with spray) and cook for 15 minutes - or until a toothpick comes out clean.
When cool, cut into 16 bars.
You can store them covered for a few days, or in the freezer indefinitely. I take one out of the freezer and allow it to sit out or microwave.
