Vegan Chocolate Rolls

This is a traditional Hungarian pastry, the original name, "Kakaós csiga" would mean Cocoa Snail, getting its name of the shape which resembles the shape of a shell. Made this time with healthy, and only vegan ingredients. If you like chocolate, then this pastry will become one of your favorites, I promise!

- 100 gsm coconut butter
- 400 gsm flour (I used 200 gsm wholegrain spelt and 200 gsm white spelt)
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 50 gsm xylitol
- 150 gsm soy yogurt
- 150 ml rice milk

2. Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, xylitol, salt, then add the melted and slightly warm coconut butter, the yogurt and the milk. Work them together, knead for a while, until the dough becomes consistent and easy to work with, as we want to roll…
