Chocolate Cake (raw & vegan)
Snacks & Sweet Things

This chocolate cake is not only super quick to prepare, as it is not baked, but is also very healthy. The avocado and nuts provide you with healthy fats and keep you full for a long time. The cake can also be stored in the freezer for a long time and can be taken out whenever you feel like it.

Duration 30 minutes
Ingredients for 8 pieces
For the base:
  • soak 100g dates in water
  • 40g (ground) almonds
  • 40g (ground) hazelnuts
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa (20g)
  • 1 pinch of salt
For the filling:
  • 2 small avocados (here: 180g net weight, i.e. without seeds & skin)
  • 2 frozen bananas (here: 180g net weight)¹

Toppings optional:
  • 10g almond slivers
  • 10g chopped hazelnuts

Preparation
  1. soak dates in warm water for 10 minutes, drain
  2. if you use whole nuts, you must first grind them finely in a mixer
  3. mix all the ingredients in a mixer to a smooth mixture
  4. line a small springform pan² with baking paper, spread the mixture evenly with a spoon and press flat
  5. keep the springform pan in the freezer while the filling is being prepared
  6. warm coconut oil briefly and carefully in the microwave or a pot until it becomes liquid
  7. mix all filling ingredients in a mixer to a smooth mass
  8. take the springform pan out of the freezer, spread the filling on the cooled base with a spoon
  9. decorate with toppings of your choice before serving
  10. either enjoy the cake immediately or let it set in the freezer for a while³
Remarks
¹ ¹ Slice the bananas without their skin at least 4 hours before preparation and freeze them in a bread tin. If you do not want bananas, you can use the same amount of avocado instead.
² I used a springform pan with Ø 16cm. For a bigger springform pan you have to double the amount, better triple it.
³ Fully frozen, the cake will keep for several weeks, but you should always allow it to defrost a little before serving.
