These brownies are for you!

I saw a recipe for No Bake Breakfast Brownies on one of my favorite recipe blogs, The Big Man’s World.  There are many gluten free, paleo recipes on this site, and many are already vegan or can easily be adapted to be vegan. I am none of the above, but I sure do like to try new things. And I have been focused on treats that can be made with few appliances so my College Boy can indulge his cooking creativity in the dorm. These were perfect, but we decided they would be even better with the addition of some fruit and nuts!

Double Berry No Bake Breakfast Brownies
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup nut butter (we used almond)
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup each dried cranberries, dried blueberries and almonds

  1. Combine the dry ingredients.
  2. Melt the almond butter a little in the microwave and combine with dry ingredients, honey and pumpkin. You should have a moist, yet thick dough. If it’s too dry, try a splash of almond milk.
  3. Add the fruit and nuts.
  4. Press into a square baking pan that is lined with parchment paper.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

The verdict? I loved these. My final product didn’t look at all like the picture on The Big Man’s World site. I think perhaps my almond butter was a little on the dry side. May have needed to use something with more oil.  I also didn’t use the exact same recipe. But I will absolutely make these again. They are very filling, very chocolatey, and not too sweet!
