  • Method: Oven


  • 3 oz dark chocolate
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • Chia egg – 1 Tbsp chia seeds mixed with 3 Tbsp non dairy milk
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup Tigernut flour
  • 1/4 cup arrowroot powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8×8 or 8×10 baking dish.
  2. Mix the chia and milk in a bowl and place in the refrigerator and let soak for a minimum of ten minutes.
  3. Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil over a double boiler.
  4. Sift the cocoa powder, tigernut, arrowroot, baking soda and salt together and set aside.
  5. Remove the chocolate mixture from heat and place the mixture in a large bowl. Mix in the coconut sugar and vanilla in with a hand or stand mixer and then add the chia “egg” mixture and mix.
  6. Add the sifted ingredients and mix until combined. Add in chocolate chips if desired.
  7. Place the mixture in the baking dish. It will be thick and you may need to pack it down some.
  8. Bake for 15-18 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!


  • Do not skip the step of sifting the flours. It is really important for lending a good texture.
  • Also, let them cool completely if you can. They will crumble if cut while too warm. I actually prefer them cold from the refrigerator!
