  • 1 block of extra firm tofu
  • 1.5 c gluten-free crackers
  • ½ c maple syrup
  • oil for frying


  • Using your tofu press, press the tofu.
  • While tofu is pressing, put your crackers into a baggie. Use a rolling pin or your hands to smash/crush the crackers into small crumbs.
  • Keep crumbs in the baggie. In a shallow bowl, add the maple syrup.
  • Remove tofu from press, cut into bite size pieces.
  • Place tofu in maple syrup. Let marinate for 15 minutes.
  • Gently spoon tofu bites into baggie with crumbs. Gently turn baggie to help coat the tofu bites with crumbs.
  • When crumbs are well covered, stop and warm your skillet over medium heat.
  • Add 1 T of oil to start. Gently fry the tofu bites on each side until golden brown.
  • Serve immediately. ENJOY! :)
