Mocha Chocolate Chunk Cookie Bars

Mocha Chocolate Chunk Brownies
Cut them small you will want to, my family refused to have such limits on their portions.  I divided the first batch into 16 pieces.  The second batch was cut into 12.  They much preferred the larger brownies.  These were deemed blog worthy by both family and non-vegan friends.  :)  Definitely, try it with the vegan chocolate chunks not mini chips. I have made it both ways and the chunks were unanimously deemed better.

1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
1/4 Cup Spelt Flour
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Canola Oil
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
1 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chunks
1/2 Cup Hot Coffee mixed with 2 Tablespoons Golden Flax Seed Meal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Place baking parchment in a 9 inch square baking pan.

Combine flax mixture with vanilla and oil in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl whisk together cocoa powder, flours, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

Stir sugars into wet ingredients.  Mix until smooth.

Sift dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Stir until well combined. Stir in chocolate chunks.

Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 22-23 minutes.

Let cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes before using parchment to lift brownies onto counter.

Cut into individual servings and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
