- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or 175 degrees Celsius. Prepare a baking dish and grease. You can use a spray on grease to cover the whole area of the baking dish.
- Put saucepan over low heat and mix the cocoa powder and virgin coconut oil until it melts. This may take about 5 minutes. Just make sure the coconut oil has melted and bring it off the heat. Let it cool down and set aside.
- Prepare the eggs, beat all at once. Add in the sugar, salt and vanilla extract and stir into a bowl. Once done, add in the cocoa powder and coconut oil mixture. Mix and stir for a few minutes, making sure that there are no visible lumps in the batter.
- Once batter is thoroughly mixed, pour mix in the baking dish, spread evenly and add the chocolate chip toppings as desired.
- Once toppings are added and the batter is already in that baking dish, place it in the preheated oven. Place a toothpick in the center. Let it bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. Once you see the inserted toothpick pop out from the center of the baking dish, then you are good to go.
- To serve, let it cool down. Slice the whole pastry into small square pieces. This can be served warm from the oven or cold from the chiller as desired. Enjoy!
