The old Lamington. Its so freaking delicious!

But, if you get hungover from wheat like I do, sometimes its not worth it.

SO! Why not create something that replaces the little urge for a lamington, whenever that may come about !

I make these and take this with me to a café to have a cuppa with, or just a quick snack to have on hand in the fridge!

Try this recipe, its so easy 🙂

Ingredients:

For the balls:

2 cups of blanched almond meal

1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean powder

1 cup of soaked dates (strained)

2 tablespoons of coconut flour

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1/3 cup of maple syrup

For the Chocolate coating:

1 cup of melted cacao butter

1 pinch vanilla bean powder

1 pinch Celtic salt

3-4 tablespoons with RAW cacao powder

1/4 cup of maple syrup

Method:

Place all ingredients from the ‘balls’ list into your blender or food processor expect for the soaked (and strained) dates. Turn on medium speed and make sure all ingredients have been blended together thoroughly. You may need to scrape down the sides of the blender at some point. Now add in your soaked dates and blend further on medium speed until you achieve a wet, sticky consistency.

Remove from jug and roll into desired size balls, I use a tablespoon as a measure. Place on a lined tray and pop into the freezer while you make your chocolate.

Chocolate:-

Using a double boiler melt down your 1 cup of cacao butter. Then add in remaining chocolate ingredients and whisk out any lumps with a fork or whisk.

Remove your balls from the freezer and dip into the raw chocolate and place back onto the lined tray. Sprinkle the Lamington Blissful bites with shredded coconut then place back into the freezer to set your chocolate.

Await half an hour before removing the lamington bites, place into an air tight container and store in the refrigerator.

I get all my wholefood ingredients from The Source Bulk Foods, North Ward Townsville. Grab what you need and the right quantities and your set to go!

Enjoy!
