Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 11x7-baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set aside to bloom.
  3. In a large mixing bowl combine the sugar, brown sugar, coconut oil, warm pecan milk, cocoa powder, salt and vanilla extract. Mix until all of the sugar has dissolved.
