Fudgy Black Forest Applesauce Brownies


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground coffee beans
  • 1 cup Our Family Garden, Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 2 cups frozen dark cherries (divided)
  • 16 tablespoons Greek Yogurt


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Melt butter in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Mix well until chips have melted. Set aside.

In a medium bowl mix sugar, cocoa powder, flour and ground coffee beans. Stir into chocolate mixture.

Add applesauce and beaten eggs.

Chop one cup of cherries into quarters and add to brownie batter. Pour into a greased 9 1/2 ” X 7 ” baking tray. If tray is slightly smaller, brownies will be thicker.

Bake on lower shelf of oven for approx. 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into center of brownies comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

When ready to serve, cut into 16 squares and top each with yogurt and remaining cherries.
