Servings 12


  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 6 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp oil any neutral oil
  • cup plant milk I used almond milk
  • ¾ cup sugar whichever you prefer
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½-1 cup dairy free mini chocolate chips I use EnjoyLife


  • Mix together the flax meal and water. Set aside for a few minutes to thicken up
  • In a bowl, combine the oil, plant milk, sugar, and flax mixture. Stir until fully combined,
  • Then, in the same bowl, add in the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  • Once the batter is mixed thoroughly, fold in the chocolate chips. ( I folded in 1/2 cup of the chocolate chips and then added a small handful of chips to the top once inside the baking dish)
  • Pour batter into a greased (or lined) 8x8 baking dish. Sprinkle on additional chocolate chips to the top if you desire!
  • Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes, as ovens can vary, being sure to start checking after the 25 minute mark. Or bake until you can insert a toothpick into the center and it comes out clean (without any wet batter).


**DO NOT OVERBAKE!** The cake will become too dry. Once you can shake the baking pan and there is no jiggle from the batter, you should be relatively good to go!
