Here’s the bounty cake recipe

Bounty cake


  • Base:
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup walnuts
  • 1 cup dates, soaked
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (not melted)
  • 2 tbsp desiccated coconut
  • Filling:
  • 2 cups desiccated coconut
  • 1 cup tinned coconut milk (make sure no chemicals added, I like Biona or Coconut Merchant)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil ( not melted)
  • Optional: 1 tbsp raw date syrup
  • Chocolate layer:
  • 1 bar raw chocolate (size depends on how thick you want to have the chocolate layer)
  • 3 tbsp tinned coconut milk


  1. Start by soaking your dates in hot water for approximately 15 min.
  2. In the meantime gear up your food processor and pop in the nuts and process . I like it a bit chunky, but the texture is up to you.
  3. Next add dates, coconut oil and desiccated coconut and combine until you get a chunky, sticky dough.
  4. Get your round cake mould and transfer all the mixture to it pressing down firmly. Place in the freezer to set and harden
  5. Next up is the coconut filling. Place all the ingredients in a pot and gently heat up. DON’T cook it, just warm it up so the coconut oil melts nicely. Once melted pour the coconut into the cake mould on the date and nut mixture and make sure to press it down well so that it all sticks together.
  6. Place in the freezer for a couple of hours until it has firmed up
  7. Last but definitively not the least, is the chocolate layer made by melting raw chocolate with a bit of coconut milk. Once melted, let it cool down for a couple of minutes and then spread it all over the cake.
  8. Let it set for 15 mins in the fridge and devour!


All that is left is to close your eyes and take a piece and float away on a bounty scented cloud….

As with all my recipes, this is a treat, so eat with moderation and do not scoff all the cake by yourself!

Much love,

    I made this last night, and it tastes delicious… But the coconut layer is really crumbly and doesn’t hold together very well, is there anything I could add next time to make it more moist? Thanks

      Hello Joanne, did you use tinned coconut milk? If crumbly I would add more milk to help to stick together or touch of honey Hedi xxx

    Hello Hedi! I found this recipe off Pinterest and thought it’d be perfect for my family Christmas party, seeing as everyone has different tastes and lifestyles but they’d all appreciate this. I only ran into one problem.. this calls for tree nuts as a base/crust, which my brother is highly allergic to and if I tried to use graham crackers as a substitute, my sister couldn’t eat this delicious looking dish since she is gluten intolerant.. would you recommend any other way to possibly make this appropriate for everyone? Thank you in advance 🙂

      Hello Tegan, thank you for lovely comment. How about seeds? Is your brother allergic to seeds? You could use them instead. That way your sister could eat it too because seeds are gluten – free. Do you think this could work? Or how about gluten- free oatcakes? Hedi xxx

        Thank you so much for replying! Seeds would work perfect, I didn’t even think of them.. I imagine sesame seeds are the best route. Here’s to hoping!

    I am so glad you made this post! I tried this out for the first time last weekend for a BBQ (only vegan there, and EVERYONE loves cake but were on a diet!). I done this recipe but without the desiccated coconut 🙁 only because I couldn’t find any in my local shop.
    ERMMMMERRRGAARRRDDDDDD – I was in awe when eating this, and everyone at the BBQ were put off the fact it was vegan… rest assured though, they all tried it AND LOVED IT!!! Even the ones on diets tried it (because lets face it, it isn’t really that naughty!!!

      Awwww Lucy, your comment made my day! Thanks so much and I am thrilled that they loved it!! Vegan all the way 🙂 xxxx

    I made this! It’s really good, I used normal coconut milk instead of tinned one and it came up a bit crumbly but still.. It’s a great sweet having to be on the fodmap diet with all this restrictions!
    I was wondering if there is some substitute for dates as for me it’s recommended to avoid this.
    I’m on a fodmap diet, also gluten free and dairy free.
    Thank you for posting this recipe!

      Hello Mia, try raisins, figs or prunes, they all should work. So happy you enjoyed it. Hedi xxx

    Hello! So excited to make this for a family late holiday party tomorrow….Can you tell me what RAW chocolate might be??? is that like baking chocolate? (probably not vegan.) do i need to get this at the health food store?

    • Hedi Hearts
      January 7, 2017 at 8:04 pm (1 year ago)

      Raw chocolate is the best and vegan, but you can use any dark chocolate lovely, just watch the sugar content. Hedi xxx
