Looking for raw chocolate cake recipes? We love this raw cacao recipe from Sally O'Neill.

What remains is a nutritionally-dense, and delicious, raw powder.


  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup raw cacao powder
  • ½ cup rice malt syrup
  • 9 free-range eggs
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp Himalayan sea salt


  • 1 avocado
  • 2 tbsp granulated stevia or rice malt syrup
  • 4 tbsp raw cacao powder

Garnish (optional)

  • ¼ cup coconut flakes
  • ¼ cup smashed fresh raspberries
  • 2 tsp dried red fruits or red tea blend
  • 1 tbsp crushed nuts

Preheat oven to 160°C. Whisk together coconut oil, raw cacao powder and rice malt syrup, and allow to cool. Using a hand-held mixer, beat eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy (approximately two minutes). Add cooled chocolate mix and beat again until combined. In a large bowl add dry ingredients, mix well, then add wet ingredients. Mix together and pour into a lined 20cm cake tin.

Bake for one hour, or until a skewer removes cleanly. Meanwhile, blend together frosting ingredients until smooth. Top the cake, then garnish as desired.
