I’m the kind of person who could eat cake for breakfast. It’s most definitely not what my body wants — I feel best after a couple hard boiled eggs or a bowl of oatmeal with almond butter — but my mind and sweet tooth say otherwise.
The day after thanksgiving and the day after my birthday are two of my favorite days, the former because I get to eat leftover pumpkin pie first thing in the morning and the latter because of breakfast birthday cake. It’s all about balance, right?
While balance dictates that for 95% of the year, I should most definitely not have sugary cake or pie for breakfast, this recipe is for when I wanna eat something sweet for breakfast (or dessert) and nourish my body at the same time.
It’s a soft and gooey chocolate brownie filled with oats, cocoa powder, almond flour, coconut flour, and just a touch of maple syrup. Since oats and coconut flour already have a natural sweetness to them, sometimes I leave out the maple syrup. It makes finding a pocket of melty chocolate chip all the better.
I’ve cooked this recipe for friends, and have heard nothing but rave reviews (plus astonishment that from start to finish it only takes 2 minutes to cook). Try it out, and let me know what you think!
