MAKES 12 BARS
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs, slightly beaten
¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup coconut flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon freshly ground sea salt
3 ounces of your favorite dark chocolate bar, coarsely chopped
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray an 8×8 inch baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a large bowl, whisk together coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, eggs, and almond milk. In a separate medium bowl whisk together coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined and batter is smooth. Fold in chopped chocolate, reserved a few tablespoons for sprinkling on top if desired.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and knife comes out with a few crumbs attached. The batter may look like it’s not all the way cooked but it will be. Do not over bake or your bars will be super dried out! Cool bars on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then cut into 12 squares.
