These are DIVINE! I love making my own instant mixes, and since I’m in the mood for brownies more often than I’m in the mood to cook, I made several batches of this at once for easy baking later. And homemade just tastes better with all real ingredients and none of the overly processed junk like “partially hydrogenated” oils and artificial flavors.
I modified the original recipe and cut out 1,080 calories! Still not low calorie, but a huge improvement.
Here’s the lowdown on the calories:
20 servings per mix = 190 calories per serving (using bread flour and no nuts)
FUDGE BROWNIE RECIPE
(Store dry mix in jars or zip lock bags)
Mix in bowl:
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
2 Tbl light corn syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup nuts (optional)
Bake in greased 9×13 pan at 350* for 30 minutes (until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean)
If you want a more cake like brownie, just add another egg for a little more cake like, and 2 eggs if you want it even more so.
