  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons dried lavender flowers
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted cashews
  • Powdered sugar (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter and maple syrup, and melt in microwave or in a saucepan on the stove, then stir in chocolate chips until melted. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
  2. Add eggs and sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla. Stir in flour, cocoa, salt and lavender, blending well. Mix in cashews.
