Chocolate tofu brownies
First of all, we have to talk about the texture of these brownies, which isn’t unlike cake. It might be because they don’t contain a lot of butter, which also makes them healthier.
They’re especially light and delicious when they’re warm, since the chocolate chips scattered in the recipe melt in your mouth. I recommend microwaving them for a few seconds before digging in.
I also want to reassure you that you can’t taste the tofu at all. You’ll be able to get your family to eat tofu on the sly.
