      Here in my little corner of the globe, commercial applesauce is unavailable, so I used 1/3 C corn oil instead. I've recieved rave reveiws from my friends at work.

      I used extra-firm (non-silken) tofu because it had been sitting in the fridge for a while and I needed to use it up, so that may have been the problem, and as suggested in another review, I used 1/3 cup oil since I had no applesauce. They turned out nearly inedible. I am hoping to pass them out at a local nursing home because they won't be able to remember who brought them in and thusly whom to curse. Way dry, lumps of clay that gave me a tummy-ache

      I make these all the time. They do tend to have the texture that others are speaking of because they have very little to no fat. This is acceptable for the Ornish prevention diet depending on your evaluated status btw but NOT for the heart reversal. If you are on the heart reversal no oil is allowed period. If you are heart reversal and thinking of trying this please check your Ornish Heart reversal book or his web site on WebMD.
