1/2 cup firmly packed light or dark brown sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large egg whites (can substitute apple sauce?)
3/4 cup oat flour or all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350*, coat 8×8 pan with cooking spray
Melt the cocolate in double boiler or carefully in pan
Combine melted chocolate, vegetable purees, sugar, coca powder, margarine and vanilla.  Whisk until smooth and creamy 1-2 minutes
Whisk in egg whites.  Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt.

Let cool completely before eating, otherwise there might be a noticeable spinach taste.
Apparently these are only 133 calories per brownie (no idea what size a brownie is) .
