6 tbls. butter, melted
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips – divided
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8 inch pie plate generously with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
In a medium bowl blend together the flours, cocoa, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
In a large bowl add the brown sugar, applesauce and egg and blend together using a wire whisk – takes all of 10 seconds.
In a small bowl 1 cup of chocolate chips and the melted butter. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water and stir just until the chips are melted.
Stir the chocolate mixture into the bowl with the sugar mixture using the whisk. Add in the flour mixture stirring just into well blended.
Pour into the prepared pie plate and top with the remaining chocolate chips -I used a spatula and gently pressed them into the batter.
Bake in preheated oven 40 minutes or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. My pie was done in 35 minutes.
