Preheat oven to 180ºC. Grease a baking pan.

Grind the flax seeds, you can use a suribachi or a hand blender.

In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: oats, almonds, chia and flax seeds and the salt.

In a small bowl, mix the wet ingredients: milk, rice syrup and oil.

Add the wet ingredients to the large bowl and mix well.

Now, divide the batter into two separate bowls and add the cocoa powder to one of them and the coconut to the other one.

Grease lightly a baking dish with some sunflower oil.

Place the cocoa mixture on the dish and then add  the coconut batter smoothly over it. Each layer should be about 1 cm high.
