This chickpea chocolate no-bake cake is a great alternative to a classic chocolate cake. It's gluten-free, vegan, extra chocolaty, full of protein, and fiber. And it tastes amazing!
Cuisine Gluten-free, Vegan



  • 50 g roasted almonds
  • 50 g roasted hazelnuts
  • 60 g dates previously soaked in water for a minimum 1 hour
  • 1 level tablespoon raw cacao powder
  • date syrup if needed, for extra sweetness


  • 200 g chickpeas cooked and peeled
  • 200 g dates previously soaked for 2-3 hours
  • 100 g coconut cream the thickened coconut cream from a can of full-fat coconut milk
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 100 g roasted hazelnuts ground

Chocolate topping



  • Line the base of two mini 10 or 11 cm springform cake tins with baking paper.
  • Place almonds and hazelnuts in a food processor and process until they are finely ground. Add drained dates and cacao powder and process until the mixture sticks together. Adjust sweetness by adding date syrup if necessary.
  • Divide the mixture between two cake tins and press down firmly to form the base. Refrigerate while you make the filling.


  • Melt coconut cream and chocolate over low heat in a medium pot. Set aside.
  • Drain dates and place them in the blender. Add chickpeas, melted coconut cream, and chocolate, and blend until you get a thick cream.
  • Add ground hazelnuts and process again until well combined. Adjust sweetness if necessary.
  • Spread the chocolate cream on top of the crusts. Place the cakes in the fridge, best overnight.

Chocolate topping

  • Melt chocolate over low heat in a medium pot. Stir until smooth. Let it cool down a bit.
  • Add coconut cream, melted chocolate and agave to the blender and blend shortly until smooth.
  • Using a teaspoon, carefully spread chocolate topping over the cakes. Put the cakes in the fridge for half an hour to allow the topping to firm up.
  • Top with berries.


Always chill your coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight, being sure not to shake or tip the can to encourage separation of the cream and liquid.
