  • 1 can (540 mL) chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup crushed candy canes
  • 1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease loaf pan with coconut oil.

  2. Add everything but candy canes and chocolate chips to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth. If mixture is too thick, add plant-based milk, 1 tbsp at a time, until it blends.

  3. Fold in chocolate chips.

  4. Bake at 350 F for 25 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean (may have to cook longer if added plant-based milk). Top with crushed candy cane and enjoy!
