1 cup coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
½ cup almond flour
½ cup gluten-free flour mix, such as Bob’s Red Mill
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
¾ cup dark chocolate chips, melted
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9”x 9” baking pan with nonstick spray, line with parchment paper and spray again.
In a medium bowl, pour hot water over dates and let sit for 5-10 minutes. Transfer soaked dates to the bowl of a food processor, reserving ¼ cup of hot water. Add instant coffee to water and stir to combine. Add coffee mixture to dates and pulse until it becomes a smooth paste. Add the eggs, vanilla and coconut oil and pulse to combine.
In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, almond flour, gluten-free flour, salt and baking soda. Add half of the flour mixture, pulse to combine, and add remaining flour and melted chocolate.
