Brownies Made Healthier
1. In a large bowl whisk together 1 large egg, 1 large egg white, 1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar, 3/4 cup frozen cooked winter squash, thawed, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Add 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, 1/3 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips; mix until well combined.
2. Pour batter into an 8-inch square pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees F. until brownies spring back to the touch, 23 to 25 minutes.
3. Cool, then dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
