Low carb Lamingtons
It was Australia day this week so I wanted to make something Ozzie for the family and decided on lamingtons. However, I didn’t want to make a sugar laden unhealthy treat for my little darlings so I had to get creative! The end result was fantastic and you would never know that they were low in carbohydrates, high in fiber and nutritious !
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 eggs + 3 egg whites
2 tbsp Yacon syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup Yacon syrup
3 tbs melted coconut oil
1 cup of shredded unsweetened coconut

3. Pour the the coconut oil into the eggs while whisking.

Putting it all together
