  1. I recommend using a kitchen scale for this recipe. Also, check the video in the blog post for visual instructions.
  2. Preheat oven to 360°F (180°C) and grease one big ramekin (5 1/2 inches diameter) or 4 small ones (you can also use silicone muffin molds or aluminum muffin molds or mugs).
  3. Process all dry ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  4. Add the wet ingredients and mix again until combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into the ramekin and place the chocolate into the center.
  6. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. If you use small molds the baking time will be approximately 15 minutes.
  7. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the mold. Enjoy!
