  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a small saucepan, add lentils and 1 cup water. Bring to a boil; cover. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, until lentils are tender and most of the liquid is gone.
  3. In a small bowl, add dates; cover with boiling water. Let sit for 5 minutes, then drain.
  4. In a food processor or high-speed blender, add oats, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Pulse until a fine flour forms.
  5. Add drained dates, lentils, applesauce, milk, almond butter, and vanilla; process until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. In a 12-inch cast iron skillet, pour batter. Smooth the top so that it is even. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips, if desired.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm.
