  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter ghee, or coconut oil, melted, plus more for greasing the dish
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract gluten- free
  • 3 large eggs beaten
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup chopped dried figs I omitted for my first batch – which is shown in the photos of this post – but they add so much deliciousness in flavor and texture
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch-square glass or ceramic baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the melted fat, vanilla, eggs, honey, and lemon juice until well combined.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the almond flour, cocoa, and baking soda. Add the dry mixture to the wet and stir until well combined. Stir in the figs and pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and cool in the baking dish for 30 minutes.
  5. Dust with a little cocoa powder on top (optional). Cut into squares before serving.
