- Preheat oven to 350F/180. Line a 9-inch loaf pan with non-stick parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the oat flour, almond flour, coconut sugar, superfood hot chocolate, cocoa powder, baking powder and baking soda. Stir with a whisk until uniform.
- Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the water, melted coconut oil, lemon juice and vanilla. Stir until uniform and lump-free.
