- Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- Lightly grease a 12-inch-by-17 1/2-inch jelly-roll pan and set aside.
- Heat the oil in large pan on low heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the marijuana and cook, stirring frequently, for 30 to 35 minutes, or until brown. Remove from the heat and let cool.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, soy milk, and vanilla.
- In a separate bowl, sift together the flours, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Strain the marijuana oil through a strainer or colander and add to the dry mixture, making sure that the marijuana remains in the strainer or colander.
- Mix in the other wet ingredients, followed by the chocolate chips and nuts, if desired.
- Pour the batter into the pan and smooth out the top with a moistened spatula.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until surface cracks appear.
