DIRECTIONS

  1. Drain tofu: wrap block of tofu in paper towels and let drain for 10-15 minutes.
  2. While tofu is draining, combine cinnamon and Lakanto in mixing bowl to make the cinnamon-sugar topping.
  3. When tofu is done draining, cut into uniform sticks (as pictured), and sprinkle with 1/4 of the cinnamon-sugar topping.
  4. Spray frypan with cooking spray and heat on low heat. Place tofu in pan.
  5. Flip tofu every 3-4 minutes for about 30 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Sprinkle tofu with 1/4 of the cinnamon-sugar topping after each flip until you've used all of the topping.
  6. When the tofu is finished, prepare chocolate syrup.
  7. Heat coconut oil in microwave for 30 seconds (until it liquifies).
  8. Add cacao powder and Lakanto Syrup to the coconut oil and mix thoroughly.
  9. Drizzle chocolate syrup on top of the tofu sticks and enjoy!
