Yup, you read it right, these delicious, affordable, easy to make, brownies are not only gluten-free and dairy-free, but they’re fat-free too. And they taste good. What low fat diet is complete without fat free brownies? Certainly not mine! With this recipe you can have your brownies and eat them too. Pretty cool huh? I’ve used GLAD flour in this recipe to replace all-purpose wheat flour. It works flawlessly! My whole family approves of this recipe and they are the first to say Yuck! to fat-free goodies. Four paws up and happy faces all around!
This recipe is adapted from one in the book Secrets of Fat-Free Baking by the amazing Sandra Woodruff. If you do eat gluten then you can replace the GLAD flour with all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour and the recipe will still turn out fine.
Fat Free, Gluten Free, Dairy Free Fudge Brownies
- 1-1/2 cups GLAD all-purpose gluten free flour
- 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup applesauce
- 2/3 cup egg whites or liquid egg substitute
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium bowl combine the flour, cocoa, sugar and salt. Add the applesauce, egg whites and vanilla. Beat smooth. Batter will be thick.
Coat an 8 by 12-inch or 9 by 13-inch pan with no-stick spray. Turn the brownie batter into the pan. Spread smooth. Bake at 325° for 25 to 30 minutes. The edges will be firm and the center will be mostly firm, but still a little soft.
Allow to cool for at least 20-minutes. Cut into 24 pieces (4 x 6). Serve with pride.
