Vegan + Raw peanut cake

I just wanted to share this delicious peanut cake with you all. My mother and I made this for our joined birthday party (well to be honest I made it) and it turned out beautifully so I just had to make it again.
So before I change my mind here we go:


100 g walnuts

12 dates (please use fruit, unless you’re into that gory stuff) 

1/2 dl oats  

1/2 dl cocoa 

if necessary 1 tablespoon water 



1 dl peanut butter

1 dl oats  

2 tablespoons agave syrup

3/4 dl water  

1 pinch of sea salt  


Chocolate frosting 

1/2 dl coconut oil  

1 1/2 tablespoons agave syrup 

1/2 dl cocoa 

1 pinch of sea salt 

cocoa and salty, chopped peanuts for decoration


Let’s do it!

  1. Base: Mix walnuts, dates, oats, cocoa and water (if necessary) using a food processor into a smooth batter.
  2. Take your batter and evenly press it out into a form with a detachable edge. (Your form could have any size, it’s really a matter of preference and how thick you want your layers to be. I used a form with a diagonal of 21 cm).
  3. Filling: Again, use a food processor and mix together peanut butter, oats, agave syrup, water and sea salt into a creamy mixture. Be sure to mix everything thoroughly, not leaving a single oat unmixed. Using any tool of your preference, spred the mixture onto the base.
  4. Chocolate frosting: Melt the coconut oil in a small casserole. Then let the oil cool down. Then mix it with agave syrup, cocoa and sea salt. Stir until you have a smooth frosting.
  5. Pour the chocolate frosting over the cake. Make sure it covers the entire cake. Place the cake in the refrigerator, allowing the cake to set.
  6. Garnish the cake with powdered cocoa and chopped peanuts before serving it.
