1/3 cup pure maple syrup or honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray an 8×8 inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a food processor or blender, add all ingredients except chocolate chips and process until the batter is smooth.
Fold in 1/3 cup of chocolate chips.
Spread batter evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean and the edges are a tiny bit brown. The batter may look underdone, but you don’t want them to dry out!
