oil free pecan & espresso brownies

This brownie is processed sugar free, oil free and vegan. Drum roll for the secret ingredient . . . Silken tofu! Before you scrunch up your face I promise it doesn't taste anything like tofu. Trust me it really works beautifully, the silken tofu acts as the butter and egg replacement and you would never know the difference.
