This sounds awesome for some sweet wholesomeness. Please, how many serves should this make? Just so I don’t scoff the lot in one go 🙂

I would say it makes a filling two serves. I made this with Juliet on my hip and my 4 and 7 year old with me so I did the jar and then we all ate what was in the bowls therefore giving accurate servings sizes is a bit tricky but I would say 2 or 3 for those whose appetite isn’t as big as mine. x

I always think of you when I whip up Mix and Make recipes. Juliet was on my hip so I didn’t want to be blending. I hope you enjoy it. x

That is so sweet of you! I’m going to give it a go this week, as I’ve finally got some chia seeds. I have a terrible confession to make …I have never had Lamingtons, but I know they’re a coconut/chocolatey cake thingy, so your version will be the nearest I get to it.. and one I think I can justify in having for breakfast…yum yum!

Bianca Slade January 26, 2016 - 1:43 pm

I think it is ok to of never had lamingtons when you don’t live in Oz. I have a raw lamington on the site also but this one is quick, easy and quiet! I hope you enjoy it. x

Eating this right now and it is AMAZING!! It’s Australia Day in America for me, so thank you for a healthy taste of what I miss down under. I will put it in a smaller jar next time as there was not quite enough thickness of the delicious chocolate on top. I will definitely make it again and share with my friends!

Great to hear Debbie!! Thank you!! You could even double the choc 😉

Made Chicken Indienne for main and then followed with the not quite lamington for dessert. The lammington was delicious, filling and a good counterpoint to the curry. Only made one mistake … didn’t realise the recipe was for two. So maybe we ate too much, but who cares when you are eating good food. Thank you again Bianca.

Thank YOU! I am glad you enjoyed it. x

Any suggestions for replacing the maple syrup? These look wonderful.

Nina Vee January 17, 2020 - 4:12 pm

Cass, any syrup would work. They will all change the flavour slightly, so use one you know you like. I’d suggest rice malt syrup, or golden syrup.
