Fudgy Cocoa Brownies
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tblsp unsalted butter
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 egg whites
3/4 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with foil, allowing the foil to extend over the rim of the pan by 2 inches. Spray with nonstick spray.
Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl; set aside. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan set over low heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Whisk in the cocoa and vanilla; let stand 5 minutes. Add the granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, and egg whites to the cocoa mixture; whisk until blended. Stir in the flour mixture until blended. Stir in the walnuts.
Scrape the batter into the baking pan and spread evenly. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs clinging, 20 -25 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan on a rack. Lift from the pan using the foil as handles; cut into 16 squares.
