For the Cupcakes

Directions: Preheat oven to 350F. In a food processor, purée tofu, vanilla and oil until smooth. Once combined, add dry ingredients and pulse a few times.

With a spatula, scrape sides and bottom of food processor. Pulse a few times more. In a cupcake pan lined with wrappers, scoop in batter and bake for 20 min. or until done.
