Notes

  • Vegetarian and vegan
  • If you don’t have flax seeds on hand, use your favorite egg replacer, such as Vegg or Ener-G
  • Chocolate lovers, feel free to double or triple chocolate chunks
  • Not interested in breaking chocolate into chunks? No problem! Use Enjoy Life (or other vegan brand) of chocolate chips instead
