Add the eggs, cocoa, coconut sugar, expresso and vanilla. Melt half the chocolate chips and add to the food processor. Process until smooth. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and sea salt.

Add to the food processor and pulse until just incorporated. Stir in the remaining chocolate chips. Pour into the prepared pan.

Sprinkle cacao nibs on top. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool before cutting.
