I’ve made these bad boys a couple times, making variations as I go. The first time I made them I used oil instead of applesauce and white flour, and they were rock hard within a few days. I also used extra-firm silken tofu. A few days ago I used the ingredients below, and they were fantastic. They were chewy and moist, oh so delicious, and they didn’t get hard! I’ll definitely keep this recipe in my good books.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup vegan “butter”
1/4 cup soft/medium silken tofu
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
chocolate chips (as many as you want)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Combine the sugars, applesauce, and vegan butter in a food mixer and cream for 5 minutes. Puree the tofu and vanilla until smooth, and add to cream mixture. Mix well. Sift the flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl, and then add chocolate chips. Mould dough into balls and put on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 15-25 minutes.
