Brownies

Brownies

An office favorite at the Physicians Committee, these brownies are moist and delicious—and nobody will guess that they are low-fat or vegan!

Makes 28 brownies

Ingredients

1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup grain-based coffee substitute granules (optional)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 12.3-ounce package firm or extra-firm silken tofu
1/2 cup fortified soy or rice milk
1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
vegetable oil spray

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Stir flour, sugar, cocoa, coffee substitute granules (if using), baking soda, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.

Purée tofu in a food processor or blender until completely smooth, then blend in nondairy milk, vinegar, and vanilla.

Add tofu mixture to dry ingredients and stir just enough to mix. Spread batter into a vegetable oil sprayed or nonstick 9"×13" baking dish. Bake until top springs back when pressed lightly in the center, about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan 10 minutes.
