    1      (2 1/2-oz) j  baby-food prunes
      1/3  cup           buttermilk
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
      1/2  cup           mini chocolate chips
      1/4  cup           toasted chopped almonds
                         Chocolate Drizzle
    1      tablespoon    mini chocolate chips -- melted
 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat an 8x8-inch 
 baking pan with nonstick vegetable-oil spray.
 To make the macaroon topping: Mix the cream cheese, sugar, 
 egg white, flour, and coconut extract until smooth. Stir in the 
 flaked coconut. Set aside.
 To make the brownies: In a large bowl, combine the whole-wheat 
 flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking powder.
 In a medium bowl, beat the egg whites until foamy; add the 
 baby-food prunes, buttermilk, and vanilla. Add the egg white
 mixture to the flour mixture and mix until blended. Stir in the 
 chocolate chips and almonds. Spread the batter in the prepared 
 baking pan.
 Spread the macaroon topping over the brownie batter. Bake 
 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool, in the pan, on a wire rack. Drizzle 
 with the melted chocolate chips. (Decorative tip: Swirl a toothpick 
 through the melted chips after drizzling them on the brownies.)
