  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray an large baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add in the vanilla, applesauce, milk, and avocado oil.
  3. Carefully stir in the cherries.
  4. Bake the brownies for 20-25 minutes, until the edges are all cooked and the center looks just slightly underdone. Stick a toothpick into the center of the brownies and it should come out without batter sticking to it.
  5. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing. These brownies store well in the fridge (and tastes great cold) for up to a week, or in the freezer for 6 months.
