Ingredients

  • 1/4 c almond butter
  • 1/2 c coconut sugar
  • 1/3 c pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 c + 2 T melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 flax eggs (2 T ground flax + 6 T water, stir, let sit till gelatinous)
  • 1/4 c + 2 T paleo baking flour (I use an almond/oat blend)
  • 1/2 c vegan chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F, then line a 9″ round pie dish (you can also use an 8×8 square baking pan, but I like the pizza pie shape, personally).
  2. Combine almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and coconut sugar until all combined.
  3. Add cocoa powder in 3 installments, mixing each time until shiny, then mix in vanilla and salt.
  4. Add flax eggs and finally flour, then fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Bake about 30 minutes, then slice and slowly savor every little bite!
