  1. This looks delicious! Could I sub any other type of oil for the coconut oil? Like olive? 🙂

  3. Hi Kristy, we would recommend using grass fed butter instead or ghee. That would be tasty we think! Let us know how you go. e + c ps. sooooo delish!

  4. I’m loving all these recipes, but is there anything I can substitute for coconut flour?

  6. Tried making this tonight. Followed the receipie exactly as written. Seemed like the cake mixture was way too oily. Even after cooking it came out with the consistency of set gelatin.
    Is there a mistake the receipe above? Has anyone else tried this receipe with success?

  7. Hi Shell, Oh no! It is quite a moist cake, from the coconut oil. We have seen some pictures come through from our Instagram followers with great results. Did you let is cool before taking out of the pan? We will cook again in the next couple weeks and triple check the recipe 🙂 Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate it!!! We want to make sure our recipe works for everyone! e + c

  8. My kids love your peppermint bites, they’ve been a big hit in the lunchboxes this week. Is there a nut free substitute for the cashews? Our school is nut free and I’ve love to make this for the kids to take along for Harmony Day. Thanks! Otherwise I might try your paleo choccie as a topping instead.

  9. Hi Holly! So glad to hear your kids love the peppermint bites! So do we 😉 Hmm, the cashews make the frosting super creamy but you could use coconut instead! We also think your idea of using our choccie recipe is a good one! e + c
