  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8x8" brownie pan with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the sorghum flour, oat flour, erythritol, baking powder, turmeric, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the applesauce, lemon juice, melted coconut oil, lemon zest, and stevia extract.  Dump the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk together.  Whisk vigorously to get rid of any clumps.
  • Scoop the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out.  Tap the pan on the counter a few times to make sure it's level.  Bake for 30 minutes, or until the surface springs back when tapped.  Let cool completely before slicing.
