Banana Tofu Bars

Memorial day is just around the corner which means it’s almost time to show those legs and shoulders or (if its hot enough), strip down into a bikini! Whether you’re barbecuing in your backyard, heading out for a picnic at the park, attending a gathering at the beach with hot dogs and coolers, we are all subject to unhealthy snacks and one too many high-calorie beers. Memorial day is the unofficial start of summer so lets kick-off the summer feeling good and without regrets along come Monday evening.

The next couple of recipes I will be featuring this week will be perfect whether hosting or attending a party…and they’ll be so delicious, you won’t even have to tell them that they’re vegan/vegetarian!

Blend the tofu until silkened in the blender and transfer it over to a large bowl.

This recipe made ~10 good sized slices. This could be eaten as a quick, on-the-go breakfast, a delicious after dinner treat, or healthy snack in between meals!

Feel free to be very generous with the powdered sugar, it just makes the bars all the more delicious!

Tofu Banana Bars 

Adapted from Fat Free Vegan

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup silken tofu (regular tofu would work too)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp rum extract
  • 2 large ripe bananas (mashed)
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sweetened flake coconut

For topping:

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • Blend the tofu in a blender until smooth. Remove the mashed tofu into a bowl
  • Add the sugar and whisk until well mixed. Add the vanilla, rum, mashed bananas, and stir until everything is well incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, and salt ). Add the coconut.
  • Pour the tofu/banana mix into the dry ingredients. Mix well but don’t over mix or else the bars will bake to become tough.
  • Pour into well-greased baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes (until toothpicks come out clean)
  • Meanwhile make the powdered sugar/cinnamon topping. Set aside.
  • Remove from the oven. Sprinkle (generously) the mixture of powdered sugar and cinnamon over the bars

  1. I looove it !’ I’m going to make it right away! – I just started being a vegetarian about two months ago and without your recipes, I could not manage it up until now. ^^

  2. This recipe looks amazing! I am going to make it today – just bought some bananas and tofu last night. I do have a question: If I don’t have run extract can I use a little more banana?

      • Yes you may substitute the rum extract for a little bit more vanillam, the flavors will be slightly different but still delicious because the texture is really what makes this dish amazing =)

  3. This is new and looks amazingly delicious. Totally bookmarking this recipe and will make it this weekend!

  7. I just wanted to tell you that i’ve tried this, like 2 weeks ago, and i’m just addicted. xD. It was my first time using tofu and i was blown away, i didn’t think this will be that much good. Thank you for making me try this, now, i’m planning on trying everything else =D.

  8. I made these and they were a little dry so i next time if i add more tofu will they be somewhat the same?

  9. Hi! I love your recipes but I was wondering if it was possible to have calories and nutrition stuff on the things you make? I’m trying to watch my weight and I was just wondering. Thank you.

  10. Hi, I love this recipe and would love to try it out. The thing is that I am doing this for a class where we are discussing about organic food. (We are getting organic ingredients from whole food). But our problem was that we wanted to know if this can be stored. If so, for how long? Thank you!

  11. These were excellent! Like an even better chewier version of banana bread(i added nuts). I just tried you kale cheezy chips too. Love this blog, please keep up the good work! 🙂
