  • 2 flax eggs: 2 tablespoons ground flax mixed with 5 tablespoons water, mixture needs to sit for 15 minutes
  • 2/3 cup (4oz/115g) sugar (coconut or brown)
  • 1/2 cup (2oz/57g) almond flour
  • 1/3 cup (1 1/3oz/37g) cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (3oz/85g) bittersweet chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup (2 1/2oz/71g) creamy unsalted almond butter
  • 1/4 cup (1oz/28g) coconut oil (or vegetable oil)
  • 1/4 cup (1oz/28g) maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (2oz/57g) chocolate, roughly chopped
  1. First, prepare the flax eggs by combining the ground flax with water. Allow sitting for 15 mins while preparing the rest of the batter.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and line an 8x8 inch square pan with parchment paper.

  3. In a large bowl combine the sugar, almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt, set aside.

  4. In a medium, microwave-safe bowl, melt the chopped chocolate. Once melted add in the almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla and stir.

  5. Allow to cool slightly then add in the flax eggs and whisk until evenly combined.

  6. Whisk the dry mixture into the wet until just combined (be careful not to over mix). Then fold in the chopped chocolate.
  7. Transfer the batter to the lined baking pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until just set in the center. Take care not to over bake or they won't be as fudgy on the inside.

  8. Allow cooling completely to room temp before cutting into squares. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or freeze and thaw for another time.

Recipe Notes

* If you wish to make a paleo version with eggs, use 1 egg plus one egg-yolk at room temp and follow the same directions
