Materials

Batter

  • 1 ⅓ cups Arrowhead Mills Organic Spelt Flour
  • ½ cup salted butter one stick at room temperature
  • ½ cup coconut sugar packed
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Filling

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter room temperature
  • ½ cup coconut sugar packed
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • cup cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 cups pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 ½ cups chocolate chips
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

Crust

  • In a large bowl, cream butter and coconut sugar. Add in maple syrup and vanilla extract. Beat until the batter is light and fluffy. Add 1 egg and beat until incorporated.⁠
  • Add in spelt flour, baking soda and kosher salt. The mixture will be slightly sticky. If it’s too much, you can add 1-4 tablespoons of flour.⁠
  • Pour mixture into a parchment-lined 9×13 baking dish. Bake in a 350° F oven for 10-12 minutes or until the top becomes lightly golden. Set aside.⁠

Filling

  • In another bowl, cream butter and coconut sugar. Add maple syrup, vanilla extract and cocoa powder. Beat until light and fluffy. Add 2 eggs and beat until combined. Fold in pecans and chocolate chips. ⁠
  • Pour filling over the crust that’s still sitting in the baking dish. Bake for 2-25 minutes. The final mixture will be slightly jiggly. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before enjoying!⁠
