Turn on your oven and pre-heat to 180° c. Place the eggplant in a saucepan and cover with water, then simmer until the eggplant is soft (this normally takes 5 minutes). Drain the eggplant and place it back in a pan with dark chocolate and the coconut oil and allow the chocolate to melt. Once the chocolate has melted place the mixture in a blender and mix until smooth. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until fully combined, then add in the eggs and blend.
Place the mixture in a greased loaf tray and bake for 20 to 25 minutes until set. Allow to cool, cut up into 16 pieces and serve. As an optional extra, you can sprinkle coconut over the top before serving.
