Rachels Amazing Brownies

What you need: 

1/4 cup firm tofu
1/4 cup nondairy milk (I use soy)
2 tablespoons fruit jam
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup raw sugar (or brown sugar, if preferred)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
nuts and/or chocolate chips, if desired

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Oil and flour a pan. Puree the tofu and milk until smooth; pour mix into bowl.
2. Add the other liquid ingredients, mix, then add the dry ones and mix again.
3. Add chocolate and nuts, if using. Pour batter (and smooth it around, because it should be quite thick) into prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes.
I take my brownies out of the oven a little early so they are extra moist--you may prefer yours fully baked, but its an idea at least.
Voila! Just see if you can keep any around for longer than 24 hours!
Source of recipe: I had a few days to experiment with brownie recipes and this is what I came up with. If you are ever making brownies for non-vegan friends, this is the recipe to use (I've already had it non-vegan approved and have been commissioned to make more!) For brownies, they are also very healthy.

this is a great recipe!  i had to make a few amendments - i didn't use the fruit jam or oil - i used applesauce instead and i added a little more tofu because i read someone's came out crumbly....i also used carob instead of cocoa powder - my daughter and i loved these!  they are by far the best we've had.  i plan on making them again soon for her to take to daycare. ;)


great brownies ::)  thank you

super idea...w coating pan with coco powder


These brownies were awesome!!! I added chocolate chips and walnuts. Baked them in the toaster oven and they turned out great. Next time I will definitely make two batches. I'm thinking about also adding flax seeds. Oh, I used organic unsweetened applesauce instead of jam. Thanks, guys. By the way this website kicks butt!!!! :) :) :)


Any ideas on what size pan to use?
