Paleo Chia Flaxseed Brownie Cakes

I made this cake for my husband's birthday. Partly, because he doesn't like to eat anything with gluten in it and partly because I had all of the ingredients at home. Majority of the ingredients were bought in bulk with the exception of the semi-sweet chocolate chips.  I like the Enjoy Life chips and bought a few bags of it a few months back. He has also been adding chia and flax seeds to his peanut butter so I wanted to add those as well. I found dates, flax and chia seeds in bulk at our local Wholefoods.
