15 Decadent Raw Vegan (No-Bake) Dessert Recipes


In addition to being incredibly tasty, raw (no-bake) desserts can also be some of the healthiest and most planet-friendly options. Here are some reasons why we love raw desserts:

Raw desserts often feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. They get their sweetness from dried fruit, raw agave nectar, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial sweeteners here! They are no-bake! Great for the warmth of spring or summer, and also for energy conservation, you can avoid cranking up the oven to 350 when making a raw dessert. Most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan!

Are you ready to try a raw dessert yet? Here’s a collection of our favorite recipes. 

1. Raw Carrot Cake Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting 

Raw Cupcakes

These Raw Carrot Cake Cupcakes are the perfect single serving dessert in a cup. They are perfect for portion control as oppose to a whole carrot cake. Plus, these goodies are raw vegan! What’s not to love about them?

2. Raw Mini Chocolate Cream Cakes

Our Raw Mini Chocolate Cream Cakes are not only healthy and easy to make, they are raw and gluten free too! Plus perfect individual serving! Plus this recipe can be easily changed to your taste preference. We used pecans in the crust, but any nut would work.  For the filling, we used cashews as they provide the best cream. But macadamia nuts would be okay.  We reduced the amount of sugar in these chocolate cream cakes, so adjust to your liking.

3. Raw Double Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake

Recipe: Raw Double Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake

Raw chocolate, or better known in the raw food world as “raw cacao” is an amazing source of magnesium (great for helping you relax), as well as an astounding way to gobble up antioxidants. And, it contains phenylethylamine (PEA) — this is what our brains secrete when we fall in love. Ooooh! No wonder we love these Raw Double Chocolate Cherry Cheesecakes so much!

4. Raw Carrot-Orange Cupcakes

Recipe: Raw Carrot-Orange Cupcakes

You will love these cute, delicious, smooth and creamy Raw Carrot-Orange Cupcakes! This recipe uses walnuts instead of cashews and the texture is perfect when they are frozen!

5. Raw Caramel Apple Pie

6. Raw Chocolate Fudge Cake

8. Raw Walnut Coffee Cake with a Brownie Base

The beauty of vegan baking and raw cake-making is that you can totally reinvent classic dishes.

The brownie base of this Raw Walnut Coffee Cake is a cheeky wink to all the chocolate lovers out there: it makes this cake even more indulgent!

11. Raw Carrot Cake with Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting
