  • ½ c unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1 t ground ginger
  • ½ t ground clove
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • 2 t pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 2 T chia seeds
  • ½ cup almond milk I use unsweetened
  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin
  • 2 c oat flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein to make this dairy free, substitute a soy or other plant-based protein powder
  • ¼ rolled oats
  • ¼ c chopped walnuts
  • cooking spray preferably olive oil


  • Heat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the first 13 ingredients (through pumpkin). Whisk in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and protein powder. Spread in a 13x9 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine the walnuts and oats. Sprinkle the walnut-oat mixture over top of the brownie batter.
  • Bake at 350F for 35 minutes or until set (be sure to check for doneness in the center! - this batter can trick you and look set, but then be raw in the center when you cut it). Yield: 24 bars.
