PREHEAT oven to 325F. Line an 8 × 8-in. baking dish with overhanging parchment (about 1 in. on each side). Whisk almonds with flour, baking powder, spices and salt in a medium bowl.
COMBINE bittersweet chocolate and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium, stirring halfway through, until almost melted, 2 to 3 min. Stir until smooth. Or melt in a saucepan set over medium.
WHISK eggs and yolk with brown sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in chocolate mixture until smooth. Whisk in flour mixture. Scrape into prepared dish. Smooth top. Scatter chocolate chips overtop.
BAKE in centre of oven until a cake tester inserted into centre of brownie comes out with a few crumbs clinging to it, 40 to 42 min. Transfer pan to a rack to cool completely.
WHISK molasses with icing sugar and 2 tsp hot water in a small bowl. Drizzle over brownie. Refrigerate until brownie is firm, about 1 hour. Cut into 24 squares. Keep brownies wrapped in foil and refrigerated up to 1 week.
