To make the crust :
1. Process the almonds, the dried coconut, the oats and the buckwheat – all separately – in a mixer until finely chopped.
2. Melt the cacao butter/ the coconut oil in a bain-marie.
3. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients until the composition starts to hold together.

5. Set aside while you are preparing the fillings.

To make the chocolate filling:
1. Combine the following ingredients: avocado’s, dates, cacao powder, honey – in a food processor until everything is smooth.
2. In case you want to make a bûche of your roulade – put aside 2-3 TbSp of this chocolate filling. The rest you will be using to make the Nutella filling.

To make the Nutella filling:
1. Process the hazelnuts in a mixer to get a finely flour.
2. Combine the hazelnut flower with the rest of the chocolate filling, the coconut sugar, the carob and the vanilla powders.

The rolling:
Spread the Nutella mixture on the biscuit crust cake, completely covering it. Roll up the cake with parchment paper from short side.

Recipe submitted to Wellness weekend.Bûche crueLa croûte :
1 verre d’amande
1 verre de noix de coco
½ verre de flocons d’avoine
1/2 verre de sarrassin
3 càs de l’eau
4 càs de miel (sirop d’érable, d’agave)
3 càs de beurre de cacao/huile de coco
2 càt de poudre de matcha (thé vert)
1 pincée de poudre de spiruline
1 pincée de sel

La crème au chocolat:
2-3 petits avocats
5 dattes Medjool dénoyautées
1/2 verre de poudre de cacao
1 càs de miel (sirop d’érable, d’agave)

La crème Nutella:
1,5 verre de noisettes
3 càs de sucre de coco
1 càs de poudre de caroube
1 càt de poudre de vanille
+ la crème au chocolat (dont on garde 2-3 cuillères à soupe pour la garniture, si on veut en faire une bûche).

Pour la croûte :
1. Passez séparément au robot culinaire les amandes, les flocons d’avoine, le sarrasin et la noix de coco pour réduire le tout en une farine lisse.
2. Faire fondre le beurre de cacao/l’huile de coco au bain-marie.
3. Dans un grand bol, mélangez tous les ingrédients jusqu’à l’obtention d’une pâte uniforme et qui tienne bien.
4. Déposez le mélange entre deux feuilles de papier de cuisson et rouler la pâte. Mettre de côté.

Pour la crème au chocolat :
1.Melangez les avocats, les dattes, la poudre de cacao et le miel pour obtenir une crème lisse.
2.Si vous voulez en faire une bûche, laissez de côté 2-3 càs de cette même crème. Le reste va être utilisé pour faire la crème Nutella.

Pour la crème Nutella:
1. Mixer les noisettes au robot culinaire jusqu’à l’obtention d’une farine uniforme.
2. Mélanger la farine de noisettes avec le reste de la crème de chocolat, le sucre de coco, la poudre de caroube et la poudre de vanille.

Le montage:
Tartiner le biscuit de crème Nutella. Roulez le biscuit délicatement à l’aide du papier de cuisson. Une fois que votre roulé est fait, placez-le sur une assiette et recouvrez-le de crème au chocolat (vous pouvez vous amuser à dessiner à la fourchette des vagues comme sur une vraie bûche de bois).
