20g coconut oil, melted
Buy Coconut Oil

1 tbsp erythritol natural sweetener or stevia
1/2 tsp sea salt
water

Cream layer -
250g mascarpone
150ml chilled coconut cream, full fat (thick)
1 shot of espresso
1 tsp vanilla bean paste or vanilla powder
2-3 tbsp maple syrup

Cappuccino Slice Method

  1. Place all the crumble ingredients in the food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add more water until you get “crumble” consistency. Then place in the fridge.
  2. Meanwhile, as the base is cooling, prepare the cream layer. Pour coconut cream, mascarpone and the espresso coffee into a bowl. Add maple syrup and mix together until smooth.
  3. Divide the chocolate crumbles into two portions. Put the first layer down, spread the coffee cream on the top and repeat the process again.
  4. Sprinkle crumbles on the top of the cake and spread the cream on it.
  5. Drizzle with a thin layer of raw cacao powder and if you wish you can decorate the top with extra cream.
  6. Place in a fridge at least 3 hours or overnight.

Enjoy!
