  • 6 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 1 ½ cups of dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 1 ⅓ cups of gluten-free flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • teaspoon of xanthan gum
  • 3 heaping teaspoons of cocoa powder
  • 1 ⅓ cups of light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 cup of unsweetened dairy-free milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Using the double boiling method, melt your chocolate. If you’re unsure of how to do this, it’s easy! Place 1 cup of your dairy-free dark chocolate in a heat-safe bowl. Place this bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure that the bowl doesn’t come into contact with the water. As the chocolate melts, stir it, allowing it to melt evenly.
  • While the chocolate is melting, sieve your flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, and cocoa powder into a large bowl.
  • Once finished sieving, stir in the brown sugar and the salt.
  • Make a well in the center of the mixed ingredients, and add 5 tablespoons of melted coconut oil, dairy-free milk, vanilla extract, and melted chocolate. Stir until combined.
  • Break apart the remaining ½ cup of chocolate, and stir it into the mixture.
  • Grease an 8”x8” pan with the remaining tablespoon of coconut oil. Pour the cake batter into the pan, spreading it evenly to cover the edges.
  • Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes, until it is springy to the touch, or a toothpick comes out mostly clean.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan before cutting into evenly sized squares and serving!
