Recipe by Ellen Fitzpatrick
"Not all that bad for you, vegan, and rich as the best fudge torte. These bars keep well and are very moist. Turbinado is unrefined sugar."

1 (12 ounce) package
silken tofu, undrained
2 1/3 cups
instant decaffeinated coffee powder
whole wheat flour
These mocha bars taste GREAT! They are very
fudgie and moist. The only problem I had
with them is they are very hard to cut, because
they stick to the knife and very hard to get
out of the pan. They want to stick to the knife
or spatula. I followed the recipe in using a clean,
wet knife, but that still did not work. It was
very frustrating when I could not get them out of
of the pan.
This is a great tofu recipe! Makes the bars super smooth and rich and soft. I'm more of a cakey person though, I don't tend to like soft things like pudding, or mousse so if you do, this is a must try! :) It is definitely not a rich brownie - there is no cake texture and it's too soft :) The batter did spread out really thin b/c it's so soft like another reviewer said - next time I'll probably bake in a smaller pan or maybe add some baking powder. I think my bf will love this b/c he's the opposite of me and loves soft things! :) And I didn't have safflower oil so I used "I can't believe it's butter" and I used white flour instead of whole wheat and a mixture of light and dark brown sugar in place of the unrefined sugar, and Irish Cream liqueur instead of the instant coffee powder and I added some caramel sauce. I might try again with whole wheat flour that could give it an interesting taste. I might incorporate tofu into my regular brownie recipe :)
Delicious. I didn't have any turbinado sugar, so I used half regular sugar and half Splenda. It tasted great. next time I am going to try it with a higher ratio of Splenda to Sugar. Very rich and moist. I baked this in a 8X8 pan for 40 minutes. It was perfect.
I made this again with all Splenda instead of sugar and it turned out great. This time instead of vanilla, I subbed chocolate Torani syrup. YUM! More chocolately!
I didn't use coffee and they were like rich brownies.
These bars are very rich, but you won't fool anyone into thinking they're a traditional cake or brownie. With that said, they're good in and of themselves... they're like a mixture between pudding and cake. I bet they'd be perfect for an ice cream sandwich (traditional cookies get too hard when they hit the ice cream). I only used 1 3/4 cups sugar, and they were very sweet. I might try reducing the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and reducing the cocoa slightly. Make sure you use good tofu (I used Morinu), because its flavor will come through.
I used this recipe while teaching a
vegetarian cooking class. It was very
easy to demonstrate, relatively healthy,
and tasted absolutely wonderful! Try
this recipe if you like RICH tasting
Delicious, thank you!! Bake in an 8x8 pan instead and you get perfect, rich fudge brownies! (bake them longer too). I tried them with one substitution: instead of the coffee, I used flavored hot cocoa mix - lots of variations possible.
I was surprised at how good this tasted. I halved the recipe and used an 8-in square pan. The batter was spread out pretty thin, about 1/4-in and didn't look presentable, but it was really rich and delicious. I substituted light brown sugar for the turbinado sugar.
