What happens when you combine a tired mom solo parenting all weekend, with a teething baby, rule-testing toddler, and an overwhelmingly messy house. Grey hair? Tears? Emotionally-driven texts? Countdowns until bedtime? Well yes, all of that. But more importantly, you get lots of paleo toasted coconut coffee bread shoved in your mouth.
Caffeine takes on a whole new meaning when you become a mom. If I could inject that stuff in my veins, I very likely would. But instead, I add it to anything and everything I consume. Case and point – bread.
I already adore my paleo almond cocoa mocha energy bites, but it was due time for another coffee creation. Did I make this yummy breakfast/dessert bread in the midst of the weekend chaos? Ummm haaaall no! You crazy?! I whipped this beauty up during the week, but thank grrrrawd I did, because it was much, MUCH needed when I least expected it.
“Who bakes during the work week?” you ask. Well, no one. Correction – moms who totally have it together and rock at everything Pinterest and mommying bake during the week. But that’s not me. I made this beauty during the work week to enter in a fun ‘lil contest – and I’d love your vote!
Kohnana Coffee is giving away $1,000 to the winner of their recipe contest using any of their cold brew products. So I thought, “Hmmm I mean, I could use a thousand bucks.
The kids need new clothes, swimming lessons, preschool costs, etc. This mom hasn’t bought new clothes in years, could use a massage, is dreaming of hiring a cleaning lady, and would love to go on a date night.” Hmmm, PRIORITIES.
So should you vote for me out of pity, or because you actually think this recipe is deserving? Honestly, I’ll take either. No shame.

You guys are the best. Oh, and just FYI, we survived the weekend thanks to lots of Thomas the Train, frozen teething rings, and making Instagram stories as my personal therapy.
And because caffeine and chocolate is sort of the perfect pairing, you won’t want to make this without that decadent chocolate spread!
