Quick and Easy Lamington Jars

Quick and Easy Lamington Jars

Well Gav, here we are again! We have a few Australia Day’s under our belt now! From South Australia, to Queensland, to Western Australia, than New South Wales and finally, back to Victoria where it all began! 

You and your Mum were recently saying how quickly the last twelve months have gone. DISAGREE! Being sick both physically and with worry for nine months ensured that every minute held an hour. I barely recognised myself throughout the pregnancy and those days most certainly lingered on. But then I held my baby and that was instantly forgotten. The months since her birth have been grand!!!  Magical! So very close to perfect.

So thank you, my man, for loving me at my worst. Thanks for surviving another pregnancy and labour and for holding my hand through it all.

But more than that, I want to thank you for my three precious little people, my babies, my world. You have given me them and they have given me everything.


My favourite word, everything that matters.

Loving you always (even at your worst).

    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

    This looks delicious and nutritious…and quiet! Thank you x Take care of your lovely self 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!

        • 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.
