Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with coconut oil (you can also line with parchment if you want to be able to easily lift them from pan).
Add almond flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, dates, honey, coconut oil and vanilla to a food processor.
Process until well blended and dates have been finely ground down, about 1 minute.
Add in one egg and pulse about 15 times (or as needed) to blend then repeat with second eggs. Stir in chocolate chips with a rubber spatula.
Spread mixture evenly into prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven until brownies are set (a toothpick will still come out with crumbs), about 20 - 25 minutes.
Let cool about 5 minutes before cutting and serving. Once cool store in an airtight container.
If you want the optional chocolate syrup, in a microwave safe bowl heat 1 Tbsp coconut oil and 1 Tbsp honey in microwave until coconut oil is melted. Stir in cocoa. Let cool slightly for a thicker consistency.
