Peanut Butter Brownie Bites

These are AWESOME!!! I got the recipe from the 
Biggest Loser Dessert cookbook, but adapted it a bit.

Have you heard of Coconut Sugar?  We just discovered it, 
and it is such a great substitute to refined sugar.  We found 
Coconut Sugar at Good Earth, but it was kind of pricey.  It was
$8 for 12oz.  So we'll keep a look out for somewhere cheaper.

2 Tbsp whole grain oat flour (we just put regular oats in the magic bullet)
2 Tbsp whole wheat pastry flour (can be found at winco)
1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 egg whites
1 C coconut sugar (found at Good Earth)
2 Tbsp Unsweetened Applesauce (we used steamed apples and pureed them)
2 Tbsp Canola Oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C peanut butter (Adams would be the healthiest choice)

Preheat oven to 350° Mist 24-cup mini muffin pan with cooking spray.

Add flours to bowl of food processor fitted with chopping blade and process 2 minutes. Sift flours, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in mixing bowl.

Mix egg whites, sugar, applesauce, oil, vanilla extract and peanut butter in large bowl. Add flour mixture and stir until just combined and no lumps remain. Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds full. 

Bake 10-12 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in brownie comes out dry. Cool on rack for 5 minutes.

Serving 24
