Ok so I'm getting all patriotic over here in NYC and have recreated an allergy/ healthy version of an Aussie classic; THE LAMINGTON. For those who have no idea what a Lamington is, let me enlighten you. It's a cube of vanilla sponge, dipped in chocolate then rolled in coconut and it's insanely delicious but sadly not so good for you. So I didn't get the cube part down pat but it ticks all the nerdy health freak boxes (#paleo #glutenfree #vegan #sugarfree and #dairyfree) making them more or less guilt free!



1/2 cup cashews

1/2 cup vegan vanilla protein

1/4 cup toasted coconut flakes

1.5 tbs mct powder (optional)

1/4 cup almond meal

1 tbs mesquite powder

8 tbs melted coconut oil

1/4 cup desicated coconut + extra for rolling

2 heaped tbs of cacao powder

1/4 cup water


- Whiz the 1/2 cup cashews in a blender for 30 seconds so they are not completely blended

- In a small bowl combine the 2 tbs of cacao with 4 tbs of the melted coconut oil, this should make a smooth chocolatey syrup type consistency. Set this aside this is to coat your balls after they have been made

- In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the remaining dry ingredients.

- Add 4 tbs of coconut oil and half of the water and mix thoroughly. We are aiming for a dry dough like mix, slowly add the rest of the water if needed to achieve this. 

- Rollin' time! Take the mix and roll into balls about 1 & 1/2 inches in diameter as you finish rolling each ball, place in a bowl in the fridge.

- Once all of the balls are rolled it's time to coat these delicious things in the choc. Dip one at a time in the choc then into desiccated coconut. Place on a plate and then into the fridge for the choc to harden.  Store in a sealed container in the fridge and try not to eat them all in one sitting!


Yep I'm back on the bullet desert vibes! This was also a end of the week what's left in my cupboard dessert too. You can definitely make it with a crust, take the ingredients and steps from my Turkish delight cheese cake post. This recipe makes 2 individual serves. So if you need more double it!



1 cup soaked cashews (make sure these are soaked in water for 30min, makes them extra creamy!)

7 dates (3 to be soaked with the cashews)

1 tbs coco oil

1/2  cup apple sauce

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tbs lacuma powder

1 tbs mesquite



FILLING- all ingredients in a bullet blender for a minute, open it up give it a stir. Repeat this process x3 and place in the freezer.


- Chop the remaining 4 dates lengthways

- Place them a saucepan over a low heat with 3 tbs of water

- Allow them to simmer away, as the water disappears add a tbs more until a syrupy delicious sticky date esque topping is formed.

- Take off heat, set aside.


- Take cheesecake mix out of the freezer, try a bit ahhhhh talk about delicious right?!

- Spoon half of the cheesecake mix into a ramekin or glass

- Top this bad boy with 1/2 the date mix, dust with cinnamon, Repeat this X 2

- Place both cheesecakes in the fridge for 30 mins and HOLY YUM!
