½ cup raw oat groats (ground to powder in a coffee grinder)
1 cup almonds (ground in a coffee grinder)
2 Medjool dates (whole)
8 dried dates (whole)
½ tablespoon raw carob powder
½ tablespoon cacao powder
1 teaspoon spirulina
½ tablespoon purple corn extract (powder form)
1 tablespoon mesquite meal
1½ tablespoons coconut oil
2 cups young coconut meat (approximately from 2 coconuts)
1 avocado (small/medium)
1½ cups raw cacao butter (melted)
2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
1 tablespoon lacuma powder
½ cup agave nectar
½ cup cacao powder
¼ cup raisins (or to taste)
1 pinch of sea salt
CHOCOLATE LAYER TOPPING
1 cup cacao butter (grated)
2 tablespoons cacao nibs (ground a little but still chunky)
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1. After grinding the nuts and oats, blend the crust ingredients until they form a nice sticky consistency.
2. Push it into a pie dish lined with clingfilm (saran wrap), just in case it didn't come out!
3. In the food processor, blend all the main ingredients and again adjust to your taste. Process for quite a while if you want it smooth. I kept resting the machine then going again.
4. Pour over the crust and level it out.
CHOCOLATE LAYER TOPPING
5. Melt the last bit of cacao butter, mix in the semi-ground nibs, and powder, and pour over the cake. Spread out so it covers it evenly.
6. Let harden in the freezer.
It was my birthday last week and I really wanted to make a raw cake.
So after lots of trawling through recipes, I thought I’d make one up! Looks like lots but really easy!
As with a lot of recipes, this is mainly estimated and I would advise you to taste it as you go along. Believe me, I did.:0)
You might decide to add the different powders or leave them out. I’m sure it’ll be lovely either way but I like them!
30 minutes later (as long as I could wait), Mmmm, very much a mousse like torte rather than a cake, but yum yum yummy.
It was still a little squidgy in the pic so is back in the fridge now.
