Does anyone have a healthy brownie recipe?

I reward my kindergartners with ';brownie points'; for good behavior. Every other month or two we have a brownie party to celebrate their good work. However, I would like to give them something healthy as a snack and encourage healthy eating.Does anyone have a healthy brownie recipe?
Take your normal recipe and sustitute the oil for apple sauce. It will make a moist and fudgy brownie and cut the fat considerably! Use 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 regular and the kids won't even notice!Chocolate is good for you so you are now set!!Does anyone have a healthy brownie recipe?
