Raw Lamingtons

Happy Australia Day lovelies! I got inspired to make something Australian, so I made these raw lamingtons Saturday night for the Sunday Markets. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how these would turn out, because I don’t have the experience of sugar and butter laden original ones! However, I was told these taste like the “real” thing. My man reckons these are better than the original Lamingtons and his absolute new favorite of all my raw treats so far! Needless to say, I was proud of myself 😀  So, I thought I’d share the recipe with you all. If you have never tried Lamingtons in your life give these bad boys a go! These raw lamingtons are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, raw and refined sugar-free. Actually, these are almost fructose-free too, apart from berries used in the jam.

Lamingtons

Directions

  1. Blend all the cake filling ingredients in a food processor. Add coconut cream until smooth and wet consistency. You want the filling to be nice and moist.
  2. Take the half out and spread over a small cake tin. Save the other half of the filling for later.
  3. Blend all the ingredients for Chia Jam. Spread the jam evenly over the top of cake filling. Pop the cake tin in the freezer to set for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the freezer and carefully add the remaining cake filling on top. Pop back in the freezer for about an hour.
  5. Melt coconut oil if needed and mix all the chocolate ingredients. Remove the cake from the freezer and cut into square pieces. One by one coat the pieces in chocolate and roll in the coconut. Refrigerate Lamingtons until set. Enjoy!
