Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Stir water and flaxseed meal together in a small bowl. Let stand until thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Pulse chocolate and baking soda together in a food processor until finely ground. Add flaxseed mixture, dates, coconut oil, honey, and vanilla extract. Pulse together until combined. Stir in pecans.

  • Pour batter into an 8x8-inch baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is dry and edges have started to pull away from the pan, about 36 minutes. Let cool. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top for a little extra sweetness.

Cook's Notes:

Since I used egg substitute for these I was able to taste the batter and add more honey or dates for sweetness.

Substitute walnuts for the pecans if desired.
