This cake so decadent that it’s hard to believe that it’s raw and healthy.
Last week when I was experimenting with new raw food recipes I came up with this recipe. A raw chocolate cake – the best I have made so far. It has a rich, sweet flavor and it is so soft it almost melts in your mouth. I invited some friends over and we ate it all! Most of them had never tried raw food before and they couldn’t believe this was made by purely healthy ingredients. It was so good.

0,5 cup shredded coconut
