Brownies for Breakfast!

 Yes, I had brownies for breakfast almost this entire week! And they were pretty good. I made them with carrot puree and soaked walnuts. Add some Trader Joe's mint chocolate caps and -- ya! Good combo.

 The recipe is pretty simple:

-1/3 cup mint chocolates
-1 cup carrot puree
-1/2 cup date sugar
-1/4 cup applesauce (I use unsweetened)
-1/4 cup cocoa powder
-2 tsp vanilla extract
-2 Tbsp canola oil
-3/4 cup oat flour
-1 tsp baking powder
-2/3 cup chopped walnuts (soaked for at least a couple of hours)
-pinch salt

Preheat the oven to 350F. Melt the mint chocolates and in a large bowl combine with carrot puree, sugar, cocoa, oil, vanilla and applesauce. Mix till it looks creamy. Stir in oat flour, baking powder, walnuts and salt. Pour into a greased 8x8 pan and bake for 35-40min. Cool and cut into squares.

Dig in!
