- 3/4 cup creamy almond butter ingredients should be just roasted almonds and salt
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 eggs or 2 flax eggs for vegan version
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips plus more for topping
Preheat the oven to 350°F then line an 8x8" baking dish with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla and eggs. Stir together until smooth. Add the coconut sugar and continue to stir until a caramel like consistency is formed.
To the bowl, add the cocoa powder, coconut flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir everything together until a batter forms. Make sure everything is as well combined as possible. You don’t have to worry about over stirring.
Lastly, add the chocolate chips and fold together. Transfer the batter to the lined baking dish. Use a spatula to smooth it out evenly along the edges. Top with a few more chocolate chips, if desired. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before cutting and serving.
