DIRECTIONS:

Pre-heat oven 350 degrees and spray 8 inch square pan with olive oil and set aside.

Place honey in a large glass measuring cup. Microwave on high power for about 60 seconds. Dont want honey to be bubbling. Add cocoa powder and stir until ingredients well combined. Set aside. Let cool at room temperature.

Next in a small bowl, place flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and whisk until ingredients well combined. Now in a large bowl, combine applesauce, oil, egg and vanilla. Whisk together until smooth. Add the flour mixture to the liquid and stir/whisk until completely combined with no traces of flour. Place mix ingredients into baking pan and place into oven. Cook for about 20-25 minutes. When done insert toothpick making sure that brownie is moist and cooked.

*For garnish I warmed up some frozen berries and added agave for taste..Then drizzled over brownie..DELISH!!

Slice and enjoy…Store brownie in fridge in container for about 3 days. Even though I know it wont last that long 🙂
