Ahhh this chocolate and peanut butter raw cake is such a mess and I absolutely love it!! It is so rich in flavor and tastes super indulgent and yummy, but is made with all healthy ingredients! I brought this when I went to visit my friend Laura and it was definitely approved! She is my favorite person to serve my little creations for as she is always so enthusiastic and pretty much loves everything I put in front of her. Haha I always feel like it is a little nerve-racking to serve a new and not yet properly tested recipe to people, because I feel like it might be awkward for them if it isn’t good and I’m always worried whether they’d tell me or not. I don’t even know why I feel that way because most of my friends and family are like myself quite blunt and honest when it comes to these kinds of things ;) Stupid anxiety.

Do you guys have a favorite recipe tester? I mostly serve my creations to my little sister since we’re living together, but she is still a bit skeptical when it comes to healthy food and recipes (though she has gotten so much better), so I feel like she is never too impressed no matter what I make for her – haha yes she is such a joy to cook for ;)

Ingredients
– 2 large/4 small servings

1/4 cup walnuts

Peanut butter layer:
1/2 cup cashews, soaked

Chocolate and peanut butter raw cake healthy vegan

Chocolate layer:
1/2 cup cashews, soaked
1 tablespoon pure maple sirup, agave or akacia honey
3 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla powder
2 dates
1-2 tablespoons almond milk
A pinch of sea salt

I topped mine with melted dark chocolate (70% cacao), peanut butter and chopped dark chocolate.

I made this as a little mini cake, since I have the absolute tiniest freezer, but you can very easily just add up the ingredients and make a bigger version :)

Directions:

  1. Start by soaking the cashews in water for at least 3 hours or even overnight.
  2. Make the base by adding the walnuts and dates to a food processor and pulse until you have a cohesive, sticky mixture. Press down the base mixture in a springform cake tin (mine is about 9 cm. in diameter) lined with baking paper and make sure it is pressed down tight and evenly.
  3. To make the peanut butter layer simply add all the ingredients to a food processor – adjust the amount of peanut butter to your taste – and pulse until completely smooth, this usually takes 3-5 minutes.
  4. Pour the peanut butter layer on top of the base and set it aside, if you want the peanut butter and chocolate layer to be completely separated, then place it in the freezer for a while before adding the next layer. I just set it aside and added the chocolate layer right away.
  5. To make the chocolate layer simply add all the ingredients to a food processor and pulse until completely smooth, this usually takes 3-5 minutes.
  6. Pour the chocolate layer onto of the peanut butter layer and place it in the freezer for at least a couple of hours until it is frozen and have firmed up.
  7. Take it out of the freezer for about 20-30 minutes before serving and decorate it if you like. I topped mine with melted dark chocolate (70 % cacao), peanut butter and chopped dark chocolate, it added a little crunch and extra yumminess, enjoy!

As you might have noticed raw mini cakes are my newest obsession (check out this version with passion fruit) and I don’t think I am going to get over it anytime soon, haha I am already planning the next flavors I want to experiment with – if you have any wishes for flavor combos, then please share in the comment section, I would love to hear your thoughts! :)

      Tusind tak, det er jeg rigtigt glad for at høre! Mine opskrifter er altid på engelsk (pånær dem jeg laver for Costume), men du kan prøve med google translate eller lignende? Det plejer at fungere nogenlunde :)
