This is not really brownie pie, but can you imagine? Note to self: create a brownie pie. I'm sending brownies to a dearest friend for her birthday. She is somewhat of a brownie connoisseur. And by that I mean she knows how to enjoy a good packaged box of brownies.
I made these at work today, but all the pans in this kitchen are on steroids. The cupcake pans are obscene and the cake pan was too big for my politely portioned brownie batter.
Regardless, in a pie slice shape or in a square, or an awkwardly shaped rectangle thing; the result of cutting brownie pie pieces, the recipe is great- rich, moist and chocolately. Happy birthday, Maddie.

Maddie is on the right, fyi.

1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup raw sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup dark chocolate, in pieces (I do this for a variety of texture)
You can add nuts, if desired

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8 inch square pan... or a round cake pan.
Put melted butter in a bowl and stir in sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Beat in cocoa, flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix in chocolates. Spread batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. The brownies should be soft- they will cook more while cooling and you do not want crunchy brownies...or maybe you do
