Plant based, raw, nut free lamingtons

To be honest…when I started making these I had full intention of making a healthy variation on a Bounty Bar, but then I completely forgot to add in a step and the chocolate spread into the coconut and sure enough I had something else!

I had no idea what that something else was going to be but as it turned out these taste SO MUCH like LAMINGTONS, in their raw, whole seeds (cause no nuts in this one!) and delicious date and cacao-y form.

PS. I still plan to make a bounty bar but for now…ENJOY!!!!!



Makes 25 pieces

Gluten free : Dairy Free : Vegan : Nut free


1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/4 cup sesame seeds

1/4 cup raw cacao powder

1 cup medjool dates, pitted

No sponge-sponge:

2 cups desiccated coconut

1/4 cup coconut oil

2 tablespoons maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

pinch sea salt


1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

1/3 cup raw cacao powder

3 tablespoons maple

Extra desiccated coconut for sprinkling on top

Place ingredients for base in a food processor and blitz to a crumb, then press into a lined 25x25cm cake tin or dish.

Blend ingredients for sponge in the food processor until it comes together, then press on top of base.

Whisk together ingredients for chocolate in a bowl and pour over the top of the coconut (this was the step where I was meant to do something else to make it a bounty but didn’t!), sprinkle with extra coconut and place in freezer to set for 3-4 hours.

Slice into pieces and serve.

Store in fridge or freezer up to 2 weeks.
