OMG, this Coconut Caramel Chocolate Cake is not only raw vegan, healthy, and easy to make, it is gluten-free too and just divine! Raw desserts are so much fun to make and in fact, anyone can do it! No baking or added sweetener required. Just rich, moist coconut caramel chocolate goodness with wholesome ingredients.

Change this recipe up to your preferences or what’s available in your kitchen. I like to keep it easy and quick! I used cashew nuts for the crust, but almond nuts or pecan would work too. I can see so much potential in dressing this cake up in terms of flavors and toppings — like adding some orange flavor, for example! Be creative, and you will see endless possibilities. 

It will taste as if a divine entity has landed in your mouth. Take a fork and dig in! 😀

Sending love, always. xx
