Loaded with chocolate but not too sweet, these barely any fat brownies have the rich fudge taste and texture you desire without all of the fat.


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 oz (1/2 c.) medium-firm tofu OR firm or extra-firm SILKEN tofu
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup water (can be part liqueur of choice, such as Kahlua)
  • 4 teaspoons powdered egg replacer
  • 1 tablespoon coffee (or coffee substitute) granules or espresso powder
  • 2-3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • OPTIONAL: 1/4-1/2 cup chopped nuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In the food processor mix until smooth the sugar, tofu, cocoa, water, egg replacer, coffee granules, vanilla and vinegar. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder and soda. Add the cocoa mixture and mix briefly. Add nuts, if using.
  2. Pour the mixture into a 7 x 11" or 8 x 8" cake pan lined with cooking parchment. Spread evenly. Bake 25 minutes. Cool on a rack in the pan, then cut into bars.


Nutrition facts include 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. If you need a big batch of brownies, triple the recipe and use 1 12.3 oz. box of extra-firm (regular or lite) SILKEN tofu.
