Tofu Blueberry Bars

Tofu, Tofu, is finally coming together! I am starting to understand how to use it and how many different ways you can incorporate it into recipes. I have (successfully) used it to replace ricotta cheese. I have used it to create "eggs" for a breakfast sandwich. I made a crust less pumpkin pie with it. And today  I made these yummy, healthy blueberry bars.

10 ounces silken (soft) tofu
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup of water
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 pan.
Blend applesauce, honey, tofu, water and vanilla until smooth (food processor or blender).
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour and baking powder.
Pour wet ingredients into a mixing bowl Mix in dry ingredients and blend until mixed. Then fold in one cup blueberries.
Pour into 9x13 pan and bake for 25 minutes.
Cool and cut into squares.
