Instructions
  1. Combine ground chia and water in a bowl. Whisk to combine. Wait at least 10 minutes for consistency to become egg-like.
  2. In a saucepan melt coconut oil, add demerara sugar, and coconut sugar and vanilla. Stir to combine until liquid in texture.
  3. Sift cocoa powder and coconut flour into a large mixing bowl, add baking powder and sea salt and mix to combine. Then pour in liquid mixture. Stir to combine, but don’t over mix. Add semi-sweet dark chocolate chunks and stir again to combine.
  4. Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Line a baking dish with parchment paper and pour brownie mix into dish (I used a 7×7 inch baking dish), smooth with spatula to even. Bake brownies for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the brownie comes out clean. Let cool before cutting.
  5. Cut brownies into squares and top with heaping spoonfuls of strawberry jam.
Recipe Notes

Leftover strawberry jam can also be used to in my Vegan Bircher Bowls with Almond Butter and Jam, or to top on toast with peanut butter. Strawberry jam will last up to 5 days in the fridge.

Brownies will keep in fridge for up to 5 days, but best when fresh. They can also be frozen, thaw for 1-2 hours before serving.
