  1. Line a 30 x 20cm rectangular tin with nonstick baking paper. Put the oats in a food processor and blitz until fine. Add the ground almonds, pitted dates, vanilla extract, 75g cocoa powder and 150ml cold water and blitz again until well combined.
  2. Spoon into the lined tin and press down with the back of a spoon until flat and even. Chill for 10 mins.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt with the remaining cocoa powder in a bowl.
  4. Take the tin out of the fridge and transfer the dough on the baking paper to a work surface. Spread with the chocolate yogurt, leaving a 2cm border around the edge. Use the baking paper to gently roll up the roulade, starting from one of the short ends, taking care not to squeeze out the filling.
  5. Put on a serving plate, seal-side down. Spoon over the melted chocolate, allowing it to drip down the sides, then scatter with the chopped almonds and cranberries. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
