Does anyone else only want candy canes around this time of year? Funny how you seem to crave certain foods depending on the season.

Yesterday we think we finished all of our holiday shopping.  We did most of it online. Thanks Amazon! We are online shoppers as we are too lazy to get ready and battle the holiday crowds. The only exception we make is for coffee and Wholefoods.

Do you find yourself still running around town shopping? Do you like the holiday crowds? Does it make it feel more like the holidays? It does for us, for some reason, and everyone most people seem to be in a holly jolly mood. Or maybe the holidays stress you out. No worries as you get to bang candy canes in this recipe, which happens to be a great way to relieve stress.

If you’re running  out of ideas for gifts making something edible and homemade is always a win-win. Everyone loves food, so make this impressive and easy cake.

raw chocolate crust

  • 2/3 cup sunflower seed flour (3 oz)
  • 1/2 cup hemp seeds (2 oz)

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, liquid
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • pinch sea salt

Peppermint cream

  • 1/2 cup whole cashews, soaked, rinsed, and drained
  • 1/2 cup coconut butter
  • 5 tablespoons coconut milk (full fat from a can)
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia, liquid
  • 12 teaspoon peppermint extract or 23 drops peppermint essential oil

2 candy canes for topping


To make raw chocolate cake

  1. First make sunflower seed flour. Take sunflowers seeds and grind into flour like texture.
  2. Scoop out 2/3 cups and place into a bowl.
  3. Add in hemp seeds, sea sat, coconut sugar and raw cacao powder.
  4. Stir together.
  5. Add in coconut oil and water until batter comes together.
  6. Press cake into a parchment lined 6 in cake pan.
  7. We like to use springform pan.
  8. Set aside.

Make peppermint cream

  1. Place all ingredients into blender.
  2. Blend until creamy.
  3. Adjust sweetness and peppermint to taste.
  4. Stir in candy canes.
  5. Spread peppermint cream on top of chocolate cake.
  6. Sprinkle with more crushed candy canes if desired.
  7. Best enjoyed at room temperature.
  8. Store in refrigerator for up to 3 -4 days.
  9. Or store in freezer for longer shelf life.


Instead of sunflower seeds you can use any nut or seed you like.

Instead of hemp seeds you can use any nut flour you like.

Instead of cashews you can use almonds or macadamia nuts.

Instead of stevia you can use maple or coconut nectar. Start with 1 tbsp and adjust to taste. Will have to reduce coconut milk.

Mmm this sounds delightful! I second avoiding the mall at all costs right now. Sensory overload for me!
Growing up we were allowed to open 1 gift Christmas Eve and it had to be the one our sibling got us. Now I’m more interested in sleeping in 😉
