Alton Brown’s Mooless (Tofu) Chocolate Pie – Yummy!

Posted by in Recipes

Doesn’t this look good?!   I am in love with my husband!  He made this delicious chocolate pie for me.  Can you believe that it is made out of tofu!?  It is the best pie I’ve ever had.  I’m serious.

I will admit this is an indulgence for the price.  I’m sure you can get this cheaper finding deals on ingredients.  The Godiva liqueur was a gift that we have been holding on to.  This was a perfect treat to enjoy it.   I suggest looking for a cheaper liqueur or even adding espresso.  There are so many options you can do to make it so yummy!

The official recipe is HERE thanks to FoodNetwork.

My Ingredients

  • 13 ounces semisweet chocolate chips   $1
  • 1/3 cup Godiva Chocolate liqueur (Yummy!)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pound silken tofu, drained $2.50 (Found this in the produce section at Giant on sale last week.)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 (9-inch) prepared chocolate wafer crust  $2

Total Cost for us:  $5.50 

I’m so impressed for 426 Calories (yikes!) you get 7 grams of protein, 8.8 g monounsaturated fat, 3 g fiber, and very little cholesterol.  Can’t say that about regular chocolate cake or my daily ice cream splurge.  I think this is a keeper!

Here are some of the healthy and not so healthy facts.  Thanks to the Recipe Calculator.
