Cinnamon Apple Tofu Strudels

I have two daughters with completely opposite food preferences. Our oldest has always been a picky eater and likes very simple flavors. She has never shown any interest in dips, sauces or even ketchup. We try to incorporate new flavors in her meals often but are generally met with resistance. Our second daughter, six years younger than her big sister, is very adventurous with food. She will try anything and is very enthusiastic about helping prepare family meals. We embrace their preferences but managing a very busy household also means my primary goal is to have them agree on a meal. As much as I appreciate them both loving breakfast pastries, I also wish I could sneak in some protein when they ask for cinnamon rolls or scones. I can with Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Soft by Morinaga Nutritional Foods, Inc. We don’t eat tofu often, but I’ve been adding it to baking recipes like our new favorite Cinnamon Apple Tofu Strudels and am looking forward to using this protein alternative weekly.
