An easy recipe for super-moist and fudgy chocolate fudge vegan brownies, using tofu as an egg replacer, which is also what keeps them super moist! They will surely help you get your fix when you're craving chocolate, too. Great for school lunches, afternoon snacks for the kids (and adults too), or for dessert to end the dinner meal on a sweet note, these brownies are great to keep on hand.
As a vegan recipe, these brownies are dairy-free, egg-free, and cholesterol-free, and with maple syrup instead of sugar, they're also refined-sugar-free, which is great for vegans who want to avoid refined sugar.
3/4 cup silken soft tofu
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup cocoa powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, optional
Gather the ingredients.
Pre-heat oven to 350 F and lightly grease a baking pan.
In a blender or food processor, process the silken tofu, water, maple syrup, cocoa, oil, and vanilla until smooth.
In a large bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients—flour, sugar, baking powder and salt—, except the nuts.
Combine the dry ingredient mixture with the wet ingredients, stirring well to combine. Gently fold in the walnuts.
Pour the batter into the baking pan and bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow brownies to cool completely before cutting into 16 squares.
- If there are any nut-allergy sensitive people, or you plain just don't want them, feel free to omit the walnuts. The cooking time will remain the same with or without the nuts.
- You can substitute chopped pecans or peanuts for the walnuts also.
How to Store
Brownies can be kept in an air-tight container at room temperature for about one week. Place parchment or wax paper in between the layers to keep the brownies from sticking together.
To store your brownies longer, you can freeze them. Slice them up and then individually wrap them in plastic wrap and place them in a zip-top freezer bag. They've now become an easy grab-n-go snack. You can microwave them (so they're warm!), or if you can wait, thaw them overnight at room temperature. If they last in the freezer this long, they will keep for up to 3 months frozen.
