Brownie is a square piece of baked indulgence. Brownies can be made with chocolate or can be plain; with nuts or chocolate chips… the possibilities are endless. 

Brownies are typically enjoyed with  ice cream as a “brownie a la mode”, which starts off with a warm brownie, topped with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup or maple syrup to complete it. Finish it off with a cherry on the top… of course !!! 

These brownies are decadent with 3 layers of chocolate – large chocolate chips, chocolate chip morsels and raw cacao powder. Next they are naturally sweetened by dates. If that was not enough, it is also made with whole wheat flour. It does not have have butter or sugar or eggs. Flaxmeal is added to substitute for eggs and olive oil delivers on the good fat content. So these brownies are not only vegetarian but also vegan 😆

How good can goodness get 😛 

So …. now you understand my title choice – lets eat Brownies for breakfast …. It is practically breakfast food with all those ingredients. When you make these brownies and your kids are asking for seconds and thirds, you don’t have to say no ! When they wake up in the morning and come up and ask – mama can I eat brownies for breakfast… all you say is YES SWEETHEART 😍
