Ingredients Print Recipe
Use a sturdy whisk or spatula to mix the applesauce, vanilla, egg whites, and sugar in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Add the ?our, cocoa powder, espresso powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined and no lumps remain. Working in batches, ?ll each cup until just barely full. Sprinkle about one-fourth of the chips evenly over the brownies in each of the tins. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry (a few crumbs are okay).
Transfer the tins to a cooling rack and cool for 5 minutes. Use a butter knife to gently lift the brownies from the muf?n tins (if they stick, carefully run the knife around the edge of each cup). Cool on the rack for another 10 minutes. Repeat with the second half of the batter and the remaining chips.
