Raw Chocolate Cake [Vegan]

If you enjoy recipes like this, we highly recommend downloading the Food Monster App, it's available for both Android and iPhone and has free and paid versions. The app is loaded with thousands of allergy-friendly & vegan recipes/cooking tips, has hundreds of search filters and features like bookmarking, meal plans and more! The app shows you how having diet/health/food preferences can be full of delicious abundance rather than restrictions!

My recipe uses a different crust, a combination of walnuts and dried figs I personally find irresistibly delicious. And the filling is with twisted proportions, which also compliments it better. I bought a raw vegan organic chocolate this week, which turned out a bit of a disaster, so I incorporated it in the cream. The store bough chocolate can be easily substituted with cacao butter and powder, but if you do have a chocolate at home you find uneatable, just throw it in there…

Sprinkle it with raw cacao powder right before serving and you’ll have it. The best raw chocolate cake ever!

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Raw Vegan Vegan


For the Raw Chocolate Cake Crust:

  • 1 cup raw walnuts
  • 1 cup dried figs
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

For the Raw Chocolate Cake Cream:

  • 1 cup soaked cashews
  • 1/3 cup spring water
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 melted raw vegan chocolate bar
  • 1/3 to 1 cup maple syrup, agave nectar, or date paste


To Make the Raw Chocolate Cake Crust:

1. Blend everything together using the S blade for 1 minute.
2. Spread evenly on the bottom of a cake form.
3. Keep in the fridge while making the filling.

To Make the Raw Chocolate Cake Cream:

1. Soak the cashews for 1-2 hours. Throw the soaking water and wash them with cold water.
2. Blend the cashews, the spring water and the sweetener until nice and smooth.
3. Melt the coconut oil and the chocolate using hot water bath.
4. Add them to the blended cashews and blend again.
5. Taste your cream, if it’s too sweet – add a little bit of cacao powder, if it’s too bitter – add more sweetener.

7. Store the cake in the fridge and eat moderately.

Kristina, when I click on the link you post, right when it opens on my cell phones browser which is an android phone, it starts to download the virus. I have no way of stopping it, even if I try to shut off the power. The browser is just the standard Internet browser on all androids!! I can't remember what the file is called. The file downloads right on to my phone. I have deleted it 3 times now and since have been scared to open your links!

Hi Kristina - not going to try again. Installed a program to disinfect. A computer programmer had a look when I tried the 3rd time and confirmed my cell had the virus. Can't remember the actual words. Something like Your phone detected a virus. It then re directed me to another site. Can't remember what it was something love....

Hi Michelle! Is there a screenshot you (or your friend) can take of it & send to [email protected] so that we can see where the link takes her, along with a description of what happens when the link is clicked? As there should be no virus.
