Paleo Raspberry Lamingtons!
Tom and I were on the boat out to snorkel in the Whitsundays and they handed out Lamingtons to everyone for a snack, loser over here with all the intolerances couldn’t have one otherwise it would of pretty well ruined my whole day with the preservatives, shit tins of sugar, crappy quality gluten, food colouring you know all the BAD things that my gut HATES!
I thought it’s about bloody time I enjoyed some lamingtons again because I deserve them so I whipped up these little gems just in time for Australia Day and dear god they are heaven.
They are gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and nut free - and they aren’t made of air! Look if they were egg free they probably would of needed to be made out of air and maybe some raspberries.
Anyway… they are real easy, real basic ingredients and real bloody good. So enjoy.
I am sure they freeze well but haven’t gotten that far yet as Tom sits down to the whole batch in one sitting. Thank god they are made with coconut flour not almond meal or we would need to remortgage the house… am I right? I also have a lamington bliss ball recipe you can make if you want because everything is fun in a ball form!
