Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Spray an 8- by 8-inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, espresso powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside

In a heavy, medium saucepan, combine the bittersweet chocolate and the oil; cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is completely melted, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Stir in the applesauce, sugars, corn syrup, and vanilla; beat until smooth, about 1 minute. Add the egg whites and continue beating until the sugar is dissolved, 1 minute more. Add the reserved flour mixture and stir gently until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Spread evenly in the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out nearly clean, with a few fudgy crumbs, about 15 to 20 minutes. Cool completely on a rack before cutting.
