Raw Tiramisu [Vegan, Gluten-Free]




9 squares

Cook Time



For the Crust:

  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed coffee

For the Ladyfingers:

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 tablespoons cold-pressed coffee
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon cacao powder

For the Cream:

  • 2 cups cashews, pre-soaked
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1-2 cups water

For the Topping:

  • Cacao powder


  1. To make the crust, blend the walnuts into flour in a blender. Add dates and coffee and blend well. Press evenly into the bottom of an 8 by 4-inch baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  2. To make the ladyfingers, blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth. Form a cookie layer in the pan and put into freezer.
  3. To make the cream, blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth and thick, adding water as needed. Spread half this mixture onto your crust, then place your lady fingers cookie on top of the cream. Spread on the rest of the cream and set in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours to harden.
  4. Use a small fine mesh strainer and put some cacao powder in it, to sprinkle evenly across the top of the tiramisu.
  5. Cut into squares and serve.

This recipe is not "raw", because the recipe calls for Maple Syrup. Maple syrup is not a "raw" food!

Here is why...

For a food to be considered "raw", some experts state it can not be heated up past 104°F - 120°F. Maple Syrup is boiled at around 219°F when it is being processed!
