1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Lightly grease an 8 or 9 inch square baking pan, line with parchment paper and then grease paper as well.
3. In a medium bowl; combine flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
4. Place chocolate chips and coconut oil in a double boiler to melt chocolate. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Stir to blend, remove from heat.
5. Add mashed banana and sugar and espresso powder to melted chocolate mixture.
6. Combine flax meal with almond milk and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in vanilla extract.
7. Combine the milk mixture with the chocolate mixture. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add the wet to the dry. Mix until no dry spots remain. Do not over mix.
8. Fold in nuts and turn batter out into prepared pan.
9. Bake 20-25 minutes or until a pick inserted 2 inches from the side of the pan comes out clean. If inserted in the center it should come out slightly sticky because the middle will still be soft.
10. Cool on wire rack. Turn out onto flat surface; remove parchment paper and cut into 12-16 squares.
