  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup ghee (or grass-fed butter)
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate, chopped (around 1-1.5 bars)
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 2 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cassava flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. In a small saucepan, heat coconut oil, maple syrup, and ghee on very low heat until completely melted, stirring constantly. Add in cacao powder + chocolate chunks and heat on low for 2-3 minutes, leaving some chunks unmelted for the batter.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

  4. Whisk in eggs & vanilla and then stir in cassava flour, sea salt and baking soda. Be sure NOT to over-stir!!

  5. Line an 8x8 baking pan/dish with parchment paper and pour batter over the top, spreading out evenly.

  6. Feel free to toss a few more pieces of chocolate over the top.

  7. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until it passes the toothpick test...but always better to take out sooner than later ;)

  8. Let cool completely before slicing into. Enjoy!
