Start by preparing the oat cups. Finely grind the oats and nuts. Add the protein, cinnamon, honey and coconut oil. Mix everything thoroughly, it should form a solid mixture. If it seems too dry, add 1-2 tablespoons of water. The dough should not be crumbly or too sticky. Divide the resulting mixture into 8 equal pieces. Place each of them in a separate silicone muffin tin and using moistened fingers, press the batter into the bottom and up the edges to form cups. Place them in an oven preheated to 170 °C and bake until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Bring the solid part of the coconut milk to a boil and pour it boiling into a bowl with chocolate pieces. Let the mixture stand for a minute and then stir thoroughly. Let the baked cups cool completely. Place a hazelnut in each cup and pour the prepared chocolate cream over it.
Let the cups set in the fridge for a few hours and then serve.
