Apr 17, 2024

Mmmm…who doesn’t love lamingtons?! Well here’s a healthy twist to the traditional recipe, using delicious nutrient-dense wholefoods!



  • 1 1/3 cups (200g) raw cashews 
  • 150g cacao butter, chopped
  • 2/3 cup (70g) cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup (180g) raw honey
  • 1/2 cup (40g) shredded coconut
  • 1 cup (240) coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons rice malt syrup
  • 1 cup (75g) shredded coconut

Rasperry Chia Jam

  • 1 1/2 cups (225g) frozen raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons warm tap water
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons white chia seeds



  1. Place cashews in a medium bowl; cover with cold water. Stand, covered, for 4 hours or overnight. Drain cashews, rinse under cold water: drain well.
  2. Make raspberry chia jam.
  3. Grease a 20cm x 30cm (8-inch x 12-inch) slice pan; line with baking paper.
  4. Place cacao butter ina small heavy-based saucepan over medium heat; stir until melted. Add cacao powder and half the honey; stir until smooth. Remove from heat; stir through shredded coconut. Spread mixture evenly into pan; freeze for 30 minutes or until set.
  5. Place coconut oil, vanilla and remaining honey in a clean small heavy-based saucepan; stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until melted and combined. Blend coconut oil mixture with soaked cashews, using high-powdered blender if available; this type of blender will produce very smooth consistency. Cool and spread evenly over chilled cocoa layer, using a spatula. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze for 2 hours or until set.
  6. Using hot, dry knife, cut into 4cm (1 1/2-inch) squares. Place 1 teaspoon jam on half of the squares; top with remaining squares to sandwich. Brush tops with rice malt syrup; sprinkle with extra shredded coconut. Transfer to an airtight container; freeze until required.

Raspberry Chia Jam

  1.  Place raspberries in a food processor bowl or blender; stand until thawed. Stir warmed tap water (no hotter than 60°C/140°F) and honey in a small bowl to loosen; add to raspberries.
  2. Blend or process until pureed, transfer to a small bowl; stir in chia seeds. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight until thickened to a jam-like consistency.


  • Store leftover jam in a jar in the fridge for up to 3 days. Store raw lamingtons in an airtight container in the freezer for up 2 weeks.
