Raw Cacao Tofu Brownies

by Amie on February 16, 2010

Even though Valentine’s Day is over, I’ve been busy in my kitchn’ testing raw cacao recipes…this weekend I created gluten-free and dairy-free tofu-rific brownies…they were fabulous to say the least.  I loved the combination of buckwheat flour and pumpkin puree…these special treats have the perfect touch of sweetness complimented by flax n’ chia seeds as well as a pistachio crunch.


Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/3 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (canned pumpkin)
  • 3/4 cup stevia or raw sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. flax and chia seeds

Wet Ingredients

Optional Garnish

  • 2 Tbsp. raw pistachios, shelled


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray an 8 x 8 inch pan with nonstick baking spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients by hand; set aside.
  • Using a food processor, combine all wet ingredients; process until it forms a smooth consistency.  Slowly add dry ingredients and pulse until well moistened.
  • Transfer mixture into baking pan; sprinkle with optional garnished pistachios.
  • Bake for 20-23 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Set aside for 20 minutes to cool.  Remove from pan, serve and enjoy!

I have yet to try the chia seeds. I am seeing so many more recipes using them though. These sound great. Now is they would just do a white chocolate cacao bliss LOL

Perfectly done, at a glance you wouldn’t think there’s a pumpkin ingredients in it. and what’s good about it, is the fact that it’s a healthy food so you wouldn’t feel a guilt when eating it.

These look really good. Would I be able substitute the Organic Raw Cacao Bliss Coconut Butter with plain Coconut Butter and Cacao? I can’t find the Organic Raw Cacao Bliss Coconut Butter anywhere convenient.

Thanks; you can try. Not sure if that will work but let me know if it does Simone! You can get the cacao bliss online through my Amazon store!
