Easy Brownie Batter Breakfast Bakejump to recipe
When you wake up in the morning and know that chocolate is on the menu for breakfast, one would tend to be extremely excited about it, amirite? For instance, this Easy Brownie Batter Breakfast Bake just happens to fall into your lap, you eat it up and are like whoa, what just happened. I know I know, let’s all take a moment☝🏻…(moment taken).
I have THE sweetest sweet tooth. Like seriously. And although I don’t eat anything genetically modified or processed, I still like my sweets, even the healthy ones. I mostly use dates or date paste, maple syrup, coconut nectar, or brown rice malt syrup to sweeten things up a bit. I think to myself how on God’s beautiful green earth were things like that missing from my life! I almost shed a tear thinking about the lost times I could have had with something like this bake, but I will not dwell on the past and instead embrace the future because me and this guy (the easy brownie batter breakfast bake) have a lot, and I mean a lot of good times ahead.
Chocolatey Carob Chips 😍
I’m known to add chocolate to everything, well ok maybe not everything, just most things. (wink wink) It’s just a staple for me and kinda helps get me through the day.
Nutrition Tip of the Day:
The original recipe calls for cocoa powder but I used cacao powder because of it’s high antioxidant properties. Cacao is the purest form of chocolate you can consume. It’s essentially raw and not processed like regular chocolate or cocoa powder. Cacao is high in magnesium, calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, potassium, and manganese. The vitamin content is out of this world amaze as it’s rich in vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, C, and E.
Cacao has a higher antioxidant activity level compared to it’s friends, green tea, black tea, and organic red wine. Overtime our bodies are bombarded with free radicals and toxins like heavy metals, lead, mercury, etc. These harmful substances that we live through everyday can lead to other health problems and chronic illnesses. We need powerful antioxidants like cacao to help our bodies fight against these pathogens and keep our immune systems strong and powerful not suppressed and weak. It’s like do I need to give you a reason to eat more healthy chocolate?! I reckon I don’t.
The vegan chocolate chips aside this Easy Brownie Batter Breakfast Bake is packed with all the essentials, healthy carbs, fiber, fats, and plant protein. It’s the perfect balanced breakfast so you can switch things up in the morning and not continuously have the same thing over and over again. But who says this has to remain strictly for breakfast? It can be eaten as a snack, perhaps for lunch, heck even dinner. I love breakfast for dinner, I don’t know about anyone else and I’m also a sucker for carbs after dark.
And no I do not consider this a “cheat meal”. To me a cheat meal is a straight up doughnut or entire pizza that you damn right know isn’t good for you.
