  • I highly recommend Scharffen Berger Bittersweet Chocolate. It's the best!
  • Do NOT use baking powder in this recipe. ONLY use baking soda.
  • I used fine sea salt when testing this recipe, but feel free to use any salt you have on hand.
  • I recommend using Bob's Red Mill Super Fine Almond Flour.
