Vegan Pumpkin Chocolate Brownies

Needless to say am an chocoholic person and never stopped munching them whenever i feel down,happy or else tired, yep i cant survive without chocolates..Coming to this vegan brownies, i simply used silken tofu,pumpkin puree with chocolate chunks for making this fudge like brownies, they were quite addictive, truly tastes marvellous and absolutely irresistible...Its been a long i used tofu in my baking, both tofu and pumpkin puree works out terribly together and this combo rocks for making this kind of brownies, we simply enjoyed them having with a cup of coffee for our breakfast, i dont even have words to express how tasty these brownies were when i tasted them still they were warm..



1/2 cup  Whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2cup Cornflour
1cup All-purpose flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2tsp Baking soda
3/4cup Sugar
1/2tsp Cinnamon powder
1/2 cup Pumpkin purée
1/2cup Silken tofu
3tbsp Canola oil
2tsp Pure vanilla extract
1cup Chocolate chips
Few walnuts

Preheat oven to 350°F,grease a square baking pan with enough oil...

In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon powder and walnuts..meanwhile take the chocolate chips with some water and cook in microwave oven in high for 4-5minutes, whisk well and make a thick chocolate sauce..

Whisk pumpkin purée, silken tofu, oil, already prepared chocolate sauce and vanilla until combined, gradually add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix, pour the batter into prepared pan.

Bake for 23 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let it cool completely and enjoy without any guilt..

That's brilliant. I am always looking for new recipes using silken tofu, especially sweet recipes. Does the pumpkin puree make much difference to the flavour? You can't get it here, so I am wondering if I could use some mashed sweet potato instead or something else. What do you think?
