Raw & Vegan Chocolate Cherry Dessert


  • 1 cup of raw oats/oat flour (I used whole jumbo oats)
  • 5 or more soft dates (soak them in warm water if they are tough)
  • 2-3 tsp. or more of carob/cocoa powder
  • Water/coconut water
  • Optional: cinnamon, vanilla powder/extract etc.

Middle Layer:
  • Fresh pitted sweet cherries  (or other fruit of your choice)

Top Layer (chocolate cashew sauce):
  • 1 cup of soaked cashews/3-4 heaped tbsp. of cashew butter
  • Cocoa powder 
  • Sweetener of your choice (dates, maple syrup, raw honey)
  • Water/coconut water

1. Place oats into a food processor and pulse.

2. Add dates and carob powder while pulsing, if that's possible.

3. Gradually add water until it will form a ball and all the ingredients will combine together. 

4. Place the mixture into a form lined with parchment paper or into small cups as I did it.

5. Place cut in half cherries on the crust.

6. Into a blender place soaked cashews/cashew butter, cocoa powder, sweetener and a little bit of water. You don't have to add water if you want to make an icing, but you will have to add more cashews instead. Add as much cocoa powder and sweetener as you want.

7. Pour the cashew chocolate sauce on top and place the form/cups into a fridge until the sauce harden, or you can eat straight away.
