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 a few reasons we think raw desserts are a a great choice!

  1. Raw desserts often feature a short list of whole, unprocessed ingredients like nuts, seeds and dried fruit.
  2. They get their sweetness from dried fruit, raw agave nectar, and other natural sweeteners. No refined or artificial sweeteners here!
  3. 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.
  4. Most raw desserts are gluten-free and vegan!

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


1. Raw, Vegan Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

2. Raw Mini Chocolate Cream Cakes

Our 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 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

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!

4. Raw Carrot-Orange Cupcakes

You will love these cute, delicious, smooth and creamy raw cupcakes! This recipe uses walnuts instead of cashews and the texture is perfect when they are frozen!

5. Raw Caramel Apple Pie

This is a raw apple pie, but it’s just as filling and comforting as any cooked version and would be suitable for any  festivities of the season.

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. That way, you get to enjoy two versions: the more traditional, familiar recipe, and the new, tantalizing recipe. The brownie base 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

We all love(d) the classic dessert version of carrot cake, but we’re not crazy about the processed ingredients like white sugar, refined flour, pasteurized butter and cream cheese. We decided to remake this baby with healthy whole foods! Consider it DONE.

I need help. So I convinced a friend to go vegan and raw but due to a serious health condition she cannot have nuts or seeds because she only has 1/2 her colon. Does any one know of any recipes I can share with her. She also has a immune issue that would really benifit from plant based diet.
