  2. In a separate bowl, add the almond flour, cocoa powder, coconut flour, baking soda and salt and stir. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and with a whisk mix thoroughly and then stir in the chocolate chips.

  3. Equally divide the batter among the 12 tins and place in the oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick is inserted in the middle and comes out clean. Store in an airtight container for up to 5-6 days.
