Prep time 10 minutes



  • 100 g almond flour
  • 75 g oats
  • 75 g toasted hazelnuts
  • 80 g pitted dates (about 6-7 dates)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Chocolate filling

  • 300 g chocolate (I used a combo of 200g dark and 100g white)
  • 1.5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 handful toasted hazelnuts (as a crunchy topping)


  1. Add the hazelnuts, oats and almond flour to the processor. Blend until you get a fine flour (or coarse, if you prefer it that way).

  2. Add the dates and coconut oil. Blend again until the flour starts to stick. Use your hands to mix if needed.

  3. Line a small rectangular baking tray (20x15cm) with baking paper. Press the base dough usings your fingers to create an even base of about 3-4mm thick.

  4. Melt the chocolate in the microwave. Add the coconut oil, mix well using a spoon. Pour over the base.

  5. Roughly chop the hazelnuts, sprinkle over the chocolate. Put in the fridge for 20-30 mins and enjoy!


Slicing without breaking the chocolate

Leave the tray outside the fridge for the chocolate to thaw, 15-20 mins before slicing.

Making it into a cake

You can use a circular tin instead of a rectangular one, and slice it into triangles.

Healthy version

  • Use sugar-free chocolate, or
  • Skip the chocolate filling altogether and, instead, add cocoa powder along with your favourite activated seeds to the base dough (activates = soaked in water for 8-12 hours).
