Raw Chocolate Cake
3 c. almonds
5 c. walnuts
2 c. dates
1 tsp. vanilla powder
1 ½ c. cacao powder
2 T. coconut sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Grind the almonds into a fine powder using a food processor. Transfer almond flour to another container. Coarsely grind walnuts. Overprocessing will release too much of the oils and eventually create a butter. Combine all ingredients in food processor, reserving the dates for last. The mixture should start to hold together. If it’s too crumbly still, add a few more dates.

Press the mixture into a 9×13 pan, lightly greased with coconut oil.
Refrigerate until ready to add frosting.

Chocolate Frosting
1 c. dates, soaked for at least an hour
2 avocados
½ c. date soak water
2/3 c. coconut sugar
¼ c. grapefruit juice
½ c. coconut oil
8oz. cacao butter ( ½ c. melted)
½ c. cacao powder
¼ c. carob powder
½ tsp. vanilla powder

Dissolve coconut sugar in grapefruit juice to create a syrup. Place jar of coconut oil in pot of hot water to melt the oil. Chop cacao butter and melt over double boiler. Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Frosting will need to be placed in a refrigerator or freezer until set. This can be done before putting it on the cake, or after.
