Yes. You read it correctly- breakfast brownies. I've made these before weekend climbing trips because they're quite densely packed with energy for the day. It took a little experimentation to get these just right.

What you will need:
4 eggs
1 box of brownie mix (I use the Ghirardelli double chocolate)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (dairy milk will probably work fine)
1/3 cup oil (the flavors are strong enough you can use olive oil and you won't notice the flavor)
1 small bag of frozen mixed berries of your preference (I've used just raspberries, a blueberry and strawberry mix, as well as a blueberry, strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry mix. Blackberries are a little weird with the chocolate, the others all work well)
1/2 bag of sweetened shredded
Old fashioned Oats

Preheat oven to 325. Grease glass or metal baking pan. Mix eggs, water, almond milk, and oil in a box. Add brownie mix and most of the coconut (reserve about 1/4 cup). Add oats until desired consistency is reached (likely between 1 and 2 cups). Fold in berries (I slice the strawberries to smaller pieces first, if they are used). Spread on baking pan. Sprinkle reserved coconut and oats on top. Bake until a fork or knife can come out clean from the center, approximately 40-60 minutes.
