Every once in a while I like to surprise my kids and serve them something different for breakfast. The other morning I had fun serving them these. I had to laugh–I thought their eyes were going to bug out of heads. My five year old looked at the plate and said “but where’s breakfast? We can eat these now?!” So apparently I always serve them things and then laugh wickedly and say “but you can’t eat that yummy thing now. Bahahaha!”
Um. Ok. I’ve been watching too many things about evil queens lately. Anyway…These are great as a dessert too but I think they make a pretty fun breakfast treat every now and then.
Served with bacon of course.
-3 pastured eggs
-1/2 cup melted coconut oil
-10 dates, pitted
-1/4 cup chia seeds
– 1 cup blanched almond flour
-3 heaping tsp raw cacao
-dash sea salt
Blend the first four ingredients in your food processor or blender to make a paste. Make sure the dates get blended well. They should be paste-y not chunky. Transfer to a mixing bowl and stir in the last ingredients.
I used a meatballer to make them into small “bite sized” brownies. Bake at 325 for about 12-15 minutes. These are tastiest if they are just slightly underdone when you remove them from the oven. After they cool they will
be moist and chewy. Mmmm.
Update: You can also use coconut flour in these. I used 1/3 cup added an extra egg and also added about 1/4 cup more of coconut oil.
