Fudgy Brownies

Try as I might, I just can't make "healthy" brownies.  But, in an attempt to use better ingredients, I cut back on the oil and used apple sauce, whole wheat pastry flour, and evaporated cane juice sugar.  All still processed, don't get me wrong.  These brownies are very rich and moist, so they don't need frosting.  Be careful!  If you eat more than one at a time, you may go into a sugar coma.  Who says you need milk and eggs to make crazy good brownies?
Fudgy Goodness
1 cup organic, unbleached flour
1 cup organic whole wheat pastry flour
1 cup organic evaporated cane juice sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (I used Ghirardelli)
1 cup water or coffee
1/2 cup safflower or canola oil
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce/or 1 mashed banana
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. almond extract (optional)
vegan chocolate chips (optional)

Preheat oven to 350F.  In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oil and sugar.  Add the other wet ingredients and mix.  In a second bowl, sift all the dry ingredients together.    Combine the mixtures and stir well.   Spray or oil a 13x9 pan.  Bake 25-30 minutes.  Allow to cool 20 minutes before serving.
