Dark Cacao Pumpkin Brownies (grainfree, glutenfree, dairyfree, paleo)

I tend to bake a lot at night if I can’t sleep. And if I am on the Whole 30, and have wild cravings, one of the ways I get rid of them is to bake something, and then not eat it. My family benefits greatly from these habits, waking up often to cookies, donuts, brownies, etc. I happened to have insomnia last night, plus I am on Day 6 of the Whole 30, with a wild chocolate craving, so I baked these yummies- Dark Cacao Pumpkin Brownies! They smelled amazing. And I have yet to have a bite. But the house smelled amazing, so I knew they were good.

My kids got to eat these, because I can’t right now. One of my kids loved them so much he couldn’t stop saying it and the other one yelled, “be quiet so I can just enjoy this moment.”

Did I mention I let them eat them for breakfast? Because I did. Yummy, brownies for breakfast. And the ingredients list is so clean I can feel ok about it, paired with high protein. I think I’ll add this is the arsenal of my breakfast rotation.

Brownies for breakfast? Yes, please!

It’s a good thing.
