Healthy Gluten-free Lamingtons


5 organic eggs
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup melted organic butter
1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
2 tsp vanilla bean paste or essence
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup almond meal
1 Tbsp baking powder (gluten-free)
Chia Jam filling:
2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
2 heap Tbsp chia seeds
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp honey
Chocolate coating:
280g dark chocolate
1/4 cup coconut milk
Desiccated unsweetened coconut


Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 160*c. Grease a square cake tin and line it with baking paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl beat eggs until they are light and fluffy.
  3. Mix in coconut milk, butter, honey and vanilla essence.
  4. Add coconut and almond flour and then mix until combined. Don't over mix or you will have heavy laminations.
  5. Pour your mixture into the cake tin and then bake for 35 minutes, or until a knife comes out cleanly from the centre.
  6. While your cake is cooking make the chia jam. Blend all jam ingredients in your food processor and then pour into a small saucepan over a medium heat. Keep stirring your jam for around 8 minutes until it becomes thick. Pour into a glass jar and put in the fridge.
  7. Allow your cake to cool then cut into 16 medium squares.
  8. Spread jam on 8 squares and then top with another square of cake.
  9. In a saucepan over medium heat add your coconut cream. When it starts to boil turn down the heat and add your chocolate. Keep stirring until it becomes smooth.
  10. Pour desiccated coconut on a plate.
  11. Dip the sides of your lamingtons in chocolate then put on a tray with baking paper. Spread other sides with chocolate once it is on the tray. This bit can be a bit tricky and messy. Once they are covered in coconut they will be easier to handle.
  12. Sprinkle tops and sides with coconut. Then pick up lamingtons and dip them into coconut on the plate, to coat them fully.
  13. Place lamingtons in the fridge until they are ready to eat.

TEA PAIRING: These super tasty lamingtons pair perfectly with a cup of Bodhi Organic Masala Chai or Black BeauTEA.
