Gluten Free Hazelnut Torte with Chocolate Creme

This Gluten Free Hazelnut Torte is so divine. It’s hard to believe it’s healthy. I made it last night for dessert and it was perfect. I’ve stuck to a basic list of ingredients: hazelnuts, eggs, cacao, coconut sugar, nut milk and vanilla, however, this recipe could be easily taken to the next level by adding rum-soaked raisins (think Christmas dessert), or a cup of frozen raspberries too – yum!

Note – for the chocolate creme to maintain a whipped-cream consistency, the coconut oil MUST be soft – like butter. If it’s rock solid, the warm it ever so slightly and if its melted, then cool it until the desired consistency is achieved.
