  • 1/3 cup coconut oil plus more for brushing on the pan
  • 8 ounce semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp instant coffee *optional but adds a rich flavor
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup walnut coarsely chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush an 8-inch square baking pan with butter and lightly dust with flour or line with parchment paper. Brush parchment with oil or butter or spray oil.
  2. Whisk oil, sugar, and syrup. Whisk in eggs, one at a time.
  3. Sift the cocoa, coffee, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and cocoa together. Fold in flour and remaining chocolate chips.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan; sprinkle the top with walnuts. Bake until a toothpick comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack. To serve, cut into 2-inch
  5. *If you do not have almond flour you can make it in your blender. In a blender take about 1 cup of almonds and whirl until it becomes a flour. Be careful not to allow the blender run to long or it will become an almond butter.
