World’s best Tofu brownies- Vegan Brownies

 This year may be the last when my kids may say Ok for the idea of Santa. One already says, Santa seems everywhere anyway taking pics for money( a common sight at the malls) and the other saying that perhaps due to the economic crisis. As they deliberate through these giant ideas of economic situations, job opportunities which seem larger than their heads, I realise it is the last time perhaps Santa may get cookies and milk.

So now that we were discussing Santa, they were so against feeding Santa cookies. The reason, it is so boring. So we have decided that Santa needs to eat a bit healthier too. But yes, we are keeping it sweet and better we have tofu brownies.

Brownies are the ever pleasing baked treats you always want to hang on to. The idea of swapping the regular ingredients for tofu was purely a need for keeping the protein levels high as it was the preferred snack box addition too. The deep dark chewy dark chocolate tofu brownies have always been a hit.

 Make these tofu brownies with nuts, swirl in the peanut butter or top it with crushed candy cane it always comes perfect. This brownie gets better cos it is eggless with whole wheat flour. Pick up vegan-friendly good cocoa and you have a perfect treat..dont miss to leave some for Santa.

Bookmarking! I too agree I need proteins in our diet and hence I will try any sneaky method of adding proteins in the form of eggs, paneer, tofu. Waiting for Kiddo to come back will make it and with ice cream, she will love it. (I hope cannot predict her now).
