  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. In a small saucepan, over a low heat, melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil. Remove from heat and set aside.

  3. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut sugar and eggs until the mixture streams down in even ribbons from the whisk rather than in a big clump.
