Our family has a range of healthy eating requirements, which makes finding recipes for the whole family challenging. However I have just found a fantastic recipe on the back of the Kirkland Signature Almond Flour bag. The recipe is gluten free but with two small tweaks everyone in our home can enjoy this.
I replaced the dairy butter with a Miyokos European Style Cultured Vegan Butter and the egg with a Flax Seed egg replacement. Check your cocoa powder and chocolate chips to ensure they fit your dietary requirements. We used Kirkland Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips and Ghirardellie Premium Baking Cocoa.
Our 3 Piece Mixing Bowl Sets are awesome tools for this bake. If you are looking for a value our 11 Piece Bakeware Set comes with the 3 stainless steel bowls, valued separately $18.99 (regularly for $30.00) plus the stainless steel measuring spoon valued separately for $13.99, which means the 3 stainless steel colanders are a steal at $8.01!
I thought I would mention again my high school Home Economic teachers training of assembling all of the ingredients and equipment before baking. Our equipment list is below the recipe. This combined with reading the recipe throughly before beginning really helps for an efficient, no mistakes bake.
