Ingredients

  • Dry Stuff:

  • 4

    ounces protein (I used vanilla soy, but go crazy. This is about 1 Cup.)

  • 2 1/4

    ounces oat bran (1/2 Cup)

  • 3/4

    ounces wheat germ (1/4 Cup)

  • 1

    ounce rolled oats (1/4 Cup)

  • 1/2

    Teaspoon kosher salt

  • Wet Batter:

  • 12.5

    ounces silken or soft tofu. An average container is 15 ounces, which is a bit much.

  • 2

    large eggs

  • 2/3

    Cup almond butter (you could use peanut butter to save some $)

  • 1/2

    Cup Orange Juice, or apple juice

  • 2 3/4

    ounces whole wheat flour (1/2 Cup)

  • Other stuff:

  • 3

    ounces golden raisins

  • 3

    ounces dried cherries

  • 5

    ounces dried cranberries

  • 4

    ounces semi-sweet chocolate (optional)

Directions

To start, let’s mix up our dried fruits just to get that out of the way. Also, now would be a good time to preheat your oven to 350. Then mix together the dry ingredients listed above. This recipe is very easy once you have all your stuff together. Next we need to make the wet batter. To start, whisk your tofu until it is light and a bit fluffy. Then add all of your wet stuff. Finally, add your flour to the mix. Whisk well to combine. Next, incorporate your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients. Do about 1/3 of your dry at a time. You will need to switch to a fork to combine it all. It’s okay if it is a bit clumpy. Finally, stir in your fruit. I used raisins, cranberries, and cherries. Alton likes blueberries. Totally experiment here. You could try adding some nuts, or chocolate or tons of other stuff. Dump this batter in a 9 X 13 baking dish. It will be pretty thick. I lined mine with parchment paper which I highly recommend. I also sprayed my parchment paper with nonstick spray which I also recommend. If you don’t use the parchment paper, definitely use the spray. Ready for the heat. Bake this at 350 for 35-40 minutes. The dish will set up nicely.
