I was craving something sweet and chocolately, and I found a few boxes of brownie mix under a chair in a bag. I don't consider it "real" baking since it's from a box, but it was there and I was desperate. I was also short on butter, and wanted to make the recipe healthier (1/20 of the end result is 170 calories!) so I searched for a good substitute and found you can use applesauce. Of course, I saw this fact on the box after searching online... but oh well, it came out pretty good, even sweeter and fruitier. You just use 1/3 cup of applesauce instead of butter and one less egg. And for portion control, I scooped the batter into a mini cupcake pan.
