In a small bowl, blend the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside. Melt the baking squares. Cool to room temperature. Wash tofu under running water, then thoroughly whip it in your mixer until creamy. At low speed add the oil, melted chocolate, vanilla extract, applesauce and raw sugar. Mix until the raw sugar is somewhat dissolved, then add the peanut butter and honey. Mix for another minute until well blended. Add the cocoa/flour mixture. Blend thoroughly, about 2 minutes. Fold in the tropical source chips and the nuts. For added raspberry flavor, swirl the raspberry jam mixture into the dough by dropping mounded tablespoons on top of the dough and run a knife through it to blend. Pour mixture into a well oiled 8" square pan and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees. Allow the pan to cool before cutting. Yields 16 2-inch brownies.
There are three infallible ways of pleasing an author, and the three form a
rising scale of compliment: 1, to tell him you have read one of his books; 2,
to tell him you have read all of his books; 3, to ask him to let you read the
manuscript of his forthcoming book. No. 1 admits you to his respect; No. 2
admits you to his admiration; No. 3 carries you clear into his heart.
-- Mark Twain, "Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar"
