You can’t have a blondie for breakfast….yeah you can! This is a really moist and delicious breakfast treat or snack that if full of protein, fiber and omegas. Sweetened with maple syrup and some applesauce (which also acts as the egg), this is a brownie to start the day off with. I offered some additional tips to decrease the processed ingredients GF/Vegan baking encourages using. Play around with it. They are great at room temp or rap them and throw them in the freezer. Enjoy!
Sad news- Dropped my camera this morning and now it won’t work. Sorry, no photo today. 🙁
1 cup brown rice flour (Next time I am going to replace 1/4 c of this with almond flour to see how it works. This will decrease the processed carbs and increase fiber.)
1/4 cup almond meal (Trader Joe’s)
1 cup GF Oats
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 tsp xanthum (Optional. This is one of the GF ingredients that is hard for the body to digest. I used a tiny bit to help bind the product. It prevents crumbling. I will omit next time I make them to see.)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 Tbl chia seeds ground
1/2 c applesauce
1/2 cup real maple syrup
1/4 cup organic coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon bourbon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/3 cup walnuts (or whatever nut or seeds you like)
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips, optional (or sub dried fruit, nuts, coconut, seeds)
1) Mix the dry. Mix the wet. Mix them all together. Pour into a 9×9 greased pan.
2) Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. It would get really golden. The edges will pull away from the sides and when you touch the brownies, they will spring back.
