  • 16 original oreos or other vegan cookies of choice
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter or plantbased spread/coconut oil


Optional Toppings



  • Line the bottom and sides of a 7" cake tin with a removable base with some parchment paper.
  • Add the cookies and vegan butter to a food processor and blitz for about 30 seconds until evenly mixed. Press the cookie mixture into the base of the cake tin, and smooth it out with a spatula or flat bottomed glass, making sure it is compact. Set aside in the fridge.


  • First, melt the chocolate over a double boiler (bain-marie).
  • Add all of the ingredients apart from the maple syrup to a high-speed blender or food processor and blend for a couple of minutes until smooth and creamy.
  • Taste the filling and add the maple syrup if you'd like it sweeter and blend again to combine.
  • Transfer the filling into the cake tin using a spatula to smooth it out. To get the swirl effect on top, place the cake tin on top of a turntable, and use your spatula to make a swirl print on the surface of the cake whilst spinning the turntable. Place in the fridge to set for 3-4 hours (or overnight if preferred).
  • Once set, remove the cake from the tin. You can use a blow torch to gently heat the sides of the pan to make it easier for the cake to slide out of the tin.
  • Top with fresh berries and some grated chocolate. To store, place in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
