Vegan chocolate hazelnut cake

This vegan chocolate hazelnut cake is just sweet enough, and has a big chocolate flavor with hints of nuts. Coconut oil is the magic ingredient that solidifies the filling when chilled, but still melts in your mouth. It contrasts beautifully with the crispy, nutty crust, and the cocoa filling between. The taste feels like eating a dark chocolate with crunchy nuts, it is simply delicious and at the same time nutritious and healthy.
