Whether you cannot, or you simply do not want to use eggs in dessert recipes, these are the right brownies for you. They are so dense and fudgy, with a fantastic, deep dark chocolate flavour, and a lovely dash of sweetness from the white chocolate. They do not have any sugar added, as there is plenty of sugar in the chocolate.
Serve them with some melted chocolate, fresh fruit, or if you want to, with an ice cream of your choice; they will be fantastic whatever you choose as an addition. Make sure you check the ingredients for both types of chocolate, because even some dark chocolates can still contain milk or dairy products.

200 grams dark chocolate
250 grams unsweetened applesauce
30 grams unsweetened cocoa powder
100 grams plain flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
150 grams vegan white chocolate

Place a saucepan on medium heat, and add in the chopped up dark chocolate. Let it melt, then set it aside to cool down slightly. Take a large bowl, sift in the flour and the cocoa powder, then whisk everything really well. You can even sift them together for a second time, if you wish. Add in the applesauce, and vanilla, and whisk everything together again. Once the chocolate has cooled, add it to the batter, and blend well with a whisk. Finally, add in the chopped white chocolate, and fold it through.
Take a square baking pan (20x20 cm), line it with baking parchment, then pour in the batter, and bake them in a preheated oven, at 180˚C (350˚F) for about 15 minutes. Check them with a toothpick even before 15 minutes is up, because if they overbake, they will be dry and very crumbly. Once they are done, let them cool down in the pan for about 10 minutes, then carefully remove them from the pan and let them cool on a wire rack completely. Serve them completely cool or even after chilling in the refrigerator for an hour. Yields 12 servings.
