Raw Vegan Fudgy Chocolate Bars

Chewy Raw Vegan Chocolate Bars

These delicious raw vegan chewy chocolate bars were inspired by a raw cake that a friend of my mom used to make when I was younger. But it turns out they’re also remarkably similar (in taste & texture) to Nakd bars. In fact they’re like a more affordable, homemade (and better!) version of the Cocoa Delight flavour.

They’re chocolaty (duh!), chewy but not too sticky – you can easily pack them as a snack, no messy chocolate fingers after. And they happen to be high in protein too (1½ cups of nuts!).

The bars are great at satisfying your sweet tooth & chocolate cravings and are filled with goodness too. Win, win!

Raw Vegan Fudgy Chocolate Bars
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 9
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup cashews
  • ½ cup walnuts (halves)
  • 2 cups chopped dates
  • 1 cup chopped dried figs
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • a few drops vegetable oil
  1. In a high-speed blender blent the almonds, cashews and walnuts until you get a slightly sticky powder. It's fine (even encouraged) so still have a few small nut chunks in the powder for a nicer texture.
  2. Cut the dates and figs into pieces and add them to the nuts. Blend until you have a sticky, dough-like texture.
  3. Now add the cocoa powder and blend again. Be careful and cover the top of the blender to avoid cocoa dust covering the kitchen counters.
  4. Prepare a flat surface with a sheet of non-stick baking paper and roll/spread out the chocolate bar dough using your fingers or a rolling pin. Cover your hands or the rolling pin in a few drops of vegetable oil to avoid them sticking to the dough.
  5. Once you have an even, about 1cm thick layer cut it into bars and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes for the bars to firm.
