Microwave Mint Chip Blondies
1/2 cup plain applesauce
2/3 cup sugar (turbinado or organic white)
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon peppermint extract
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 tablespoons Ghiradelli White Mocha Cocoa powder (I prefer and don't know of another)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate
Mix wet ingredients in medium-sized bowl. Measure out dry ingredients and add to wet. Add chocolate chunks and incorporate. Pour mixture into greased small microwaveable dish.
Microwave for 4-5 minutes. If you want to make nicely cut pieces, allow to cool.
