Yummy Tofu Brownies-Yes! They are actually GOOD!

for vegans, vegetarians or just people who want to try it!

Hi fellow Hubbers! I was taking a break from studying for exams. I have finished 2 exams and am very happy that they are over with. I have one last exam on Tuesday and then I graduate! Woohoo! Please pray/hope that I do well on this exam. This is the crucial one.

Anyway, I was thinking that I could give you all a nice tasty vegetarian (I'm not sure if it is vegan due because I am not entirely sure all of the ingredients contained in the boxed brownie mix; you will have to buy a vegan brownie mix and then try this out) brownie preparation. This preparation of brownies substitutes tofu for the egg. I hope this works well for you. I find this preparation a more moist like cake preparation compared to the egg-based brownie mix.

Ingredients:

1) Boxed brownie mix (I like Duncan Hines or Pillsbury)- you can get any kind because it works well for any type of brownie preparation (like fudge or milk chocolate or even dark chocolate).

2) Blender (Indians know this as a mixie), or hand beater

3) 1 package of extra firm tofu

4) 2 tablespoons of applesauce- to substitute for oil (if you are trying to be healthy and want to try this)

Preparation:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. You can substitute non stick pan spray for butter to coat your baking dish.

Follow the directions on the box as you would for the egg preparation on the box. If you wish, you can substitute the applesauce for the oil. Before you normally would add eggs, strain the tofu so that there is no water in it. Then add to your brownie mixture. Blend or beat until smooth with no lumps.

Then pour mixture into baking pan. Put into oven and bake for about 10 minutes more than what the box says. From experience, I have noticed that the brownies do not bake thoroughly at the time that is specified with tofu, and I think that is because of the moistness of the tofu.

Once the brownies have baked, let cool for about 15-20 minutes before cutting. Serve and enjoy! Based upon the size of the baking dish you use, the brownies can serve up to 10 people.

Please let me know how they turn out. Every time I make them, they turn out great and are actually less sweet than with the egg. Happy baking! As always, comments, thoughts and ideas are welcomed!

      Hi Sarah.

      Yes, I use the entire package of tofu. It tends to mix in pretty well. Sometimes there are lumps that you can wisk away. Good luck and I hope you enjoy them!
