It’s not just for stir-fry and smoothies, I slipped tofu into these cookies this weekend for a football party and no one even noticed. Tofu has numerous health benfits as it is great source of iron and protein and low in fat and calories. It takes on the flavor of other ingredients in a recipe which makes it incredibly versatile and is often used in vegan recipes to replace eggs.
I found this recipe for the Chewy Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies at the G Living Network. I’ve never tried tofu in baking so it caught my eye as it seems a little healthier replacing the usual eggs with tofu and calls for whole wheat pastry flour (which I still had on hand from our going local challenge). They turned out great the first time and everyone was surprised to learn there was a secret ingredient.
