This recipe is completely dairy-free and using a secret ingredient as a substitute for butter and eggs – applesauce! It works as an excellent binder and adds extra flavour and moisture to the brownies. Applesauce also has reduced calories and reduced fat compared to dairy ingredients like butter and eggs.
