Chocolate Chip Cookies with Hidden Tofu

By  | Last Updated:  

We love to eat cookies! Chocolate chip cookies have got to rank as one of the world’s favorite cookies—it’s one of our family favorites anyway. Unfortunately there are no wise words that say “A cookie a day keeps the doctor away”! Of course, there is evidence that a merry heart does good, like a medicine…and I always feel quite merry when I’m eating a cookie…therefore, I am convinced that eating a cookie is good for you, especially if you are quite regular about it!

Truthfully, this year I have been mindful of making healthier choices, even when I bake. This recipe has a hidden benefit: tofu. You can’t taste the tofu in these cookies but it adds some protein. Tofu benefits also include iron, calcium and the minerals manganese, selenium and phosphorus, as well as a few other goodies. So, if you’re trying to be smart about your indulgences, this version can soothe the conscience as it pleases the palate.

You might say these cookies are just what the doctor ordered. You might…

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Hidden Tofu

  • Author:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup silken/soft tofu
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegan-friendly chocolate chips (Ghiradelli)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Stir dry ingredients together and set aside.
  3. Blend tofu in a blender, food processor, or with a mixer until smooth and light. In a separate bowl, whip coconut oil and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Whip in the tofu, and then slowly add the flour mixture.
  4. Add the chocolate chips to your level of preference and stir with a spoon or spatula.
  5. Portion out with a cookie scoop onto a prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake 10 minutes until cookies flatten out and seem set. They will seem semi-uncooked in the center, but they will set up as they cool on a cooling rack.
