  • 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s Coffee Flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 ½ tbsp drippy almond butter + 2 tsp water, mixed together
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 12 oz House Foods Extra Firm Tofu, sliced in thirds into 4 oz portions


  1. Preheat George Foreman Grill or a regular grill. In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients (except tofu). Using your hands, place tofu slices (one at a time) in the bowl and coat with coffee coconut chili mixture. Repeat with each slice until full coated. Let tofu slices marinade in sauce for at least 1 hour. Place tofu slices on your grill of choice and grill for 8 minutes (flipping half way thru if using a regular grill). Remove from grill and serve with extra sauce.
