Ingredients:
For the brownies:
– 1/3 cup tofu
– 1/4 cup strong coffee
– 1/2 cup canola oil
– 1/2 tsp almond extract
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 cup confectioners sugar
– 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
– 1 tbsp cornstarch
– 1/2 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 3/4 – 1 cup vegan chocolate chips

For the ganache topping:
– 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
– 1/3 cup soy milk
– 2 tbsp vegan butter, melted
– 1/4 cup confectioners sugar, sifted

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 inch square pan. Set aside.
2. To make the brownies: In a medium bowl, mash the tofu with your fork until smooth. Add in the coffee, oil, and almond extract and mix until combined. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, confectioners sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and cornstarch. Whisk together to combine. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Add in the chocolate chips and combine.
4. Pour the thick batter into your prepared greased pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool completely before adding any toppings.
5. To make the ganache topping: Microwave your milk for 1 minute or until very hot. Add the milk with your chocolate chips and let it sit for 2 minutes to allow the chocolate to melt. Stir to combine (micowave for another minute if needed). Add in the melted butter and stir. Allow the chocolate to cool down in the fridge for about 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, add in your confectioners sugar and combine. Pour onto your cooled brownies and enjoy!
