Ingredients

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8" brownie pan with parchment paper both ways.
  • Drain the package of tofu.  Place the tofu block in between paper towels and press on it to remove as much liquid as possible.  Press it hard enough so that it pretty much loses its shape and crumbles into chunks**
  • Add the tofu, applesauce, vanilla extract, butter flavor and stevia extract to a food processor. Puree until smooth. While blending, pour in the melted coconut butter. Puree until smooth.

  • Add the powdered erythritol, oat flour and salt.  Puree until smooth.  Scrape down the sides of the processor and blend one last time.
  • Scoop the entire mixture into the prepared brownie pan and spread it out (it should be like spreading out frosting).  Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4+ hours (or freeze for ~2 hours).
  • Transfer the fudge out of the pan and slice into 36 pieces.
  • Add the sprinkles to a shallow dish, then roll the fudge in to coat.  Serve immediately, or refrigerate covered for up to 5 days, or freeze in a tightly sealed container for up to 1 month.

Recipe Notes

**My block of tofu weighed 390g after draining and pressing.

Since my Raspberry Coconut Fudge was such a hit, I wanted to make a variation of the recipe for you guys.  How about Healthy Cake Batter Fudge?  Oh yes, puh-lease.  A lot of people asked if that recipe could also be made vegan, so I decided to veganize this variation.  I substituted the dairy in the original recipe with tofu (don’t worry, you don’t taste it)!

  1. Im mind blown that these are made with tofu!  So awesome!  Im a die hard fan of anything cake flavored!

  2. Jessica,
    Thank you for creating so many delicious vegan recipes on your blog! As a vegan, it is wonderful to make yummy treats that both myself and my non-vegan family members enjoy. You have helped me show my family that a vegan lifestyle can include delicious food, and for that I am forever grateful! Happy holidays 🙂

    • Awwww thank you so much Alexa!! Your comment brought a huge smile to my face 😀
      I’m definitely trying to make more vegan recipes on the blog. Sadly, I’ve had a ton of recipe failures lately, especially when I make vegan cakes… they’re always so dense. Crossing my fingers for more success in that category!

      PS: I’ll be posting a vegan cookie recipe this Friday 😉
