Raw Chocolate-Fudge Cake [Vegan, Gluten-Free]


  • 1/2 a large, very-ripe banana
  • 2 T (or more!) cocoa powder (10g)
  • 4 T Artisana Coconut Butter, or Homemade Coconut Butter
  • scant 1/16 tsp salt
  • 5 drops pure peppermint extract, or more if desired
  • optional: cacao nibs, fresh mint leaves
  • optional: feel free to sweeten, if needed


  1. Blend all ingredients (except the optional cacao nibs) together in your blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet. Stir in your cacao nibs, if using.
  2. Spread into a container, or onto wax paper. (Side note: this recipe makes a small cake. If you want a normal-sized cake, feel free to double or triple the recipe. It’s so good, you’ll want to do this anyway!)
  3. Refrigerate overnight, or freeze for a few hours. (If you wish to use this recipe as frosting, there’s no need to refrigerate.) The cake will keep in the freezer for weeks. Just be sure to thaw at least 20 minutes prior to eating. Taste before eating, in case you wish to add sweetener.





Katie Higgins writes the vegan blog, Chocolate-Covered Katie, where she creates recipes with three things in mind: Healthy. Vegan. Delicious. Katie refuses to believe that a person must sacrifice yummy food in order to be a healthy vegan. We can have our vegan cake (preferably chocolate) and eat it too! On her blog, Katie aims to show that being a vegan is not restrictive; it’s FUN!

This was sooo good. Totes worth the 30 minutes I spent holding down the button on my cheapo food processor to make coconut butter. I really need to get a better food processor. Thought I\'d never use it but I use it multiple times a week now.

Lovely! but I\'m thinking there\'s something missing in the ingredients... seriously... 1/2 banana is the main ingredient! Small cake for sure but that small??

So, I have been clicking and going from site to site and back in a circle to here. This looks amazing, but where is the actual recipe?

Hi Katie, Cakes looks yummy. Just a question, what can I replace banana with? My son has very strict diet.
