Vegan Lamington Balls Recipe

Vegan Lamington Balls

Lamington Balls

These healthy lamington balls take just a few minutes to make in the food processor and with just a few simple ingredients. It's a plant-based take on the Aussie classic! 

I was inspired on our walk by all of the beautiful pink native flowers to make the lamington variety, so it is a healthy version of the iconic Aussie cake! Great to have on hand for a healthy treat.

Traditional lamingtons are made from vanilla sponge or butter cake containing eggs, butter and dairy milk. Therefore the classic lamington is not vegan-friendly.

This healthy lamington recipe below is a great dairy free, egg free and gluten free alternative!


  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • ⅓ cup desiccated coconut
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ cup whole raspberries, fresh or frozen.
  • 1 Bar Vegan Chocolate


  1. Place the cashews and desiccated coconut into a food processor and pulse until cashews are grounded and mixed with the coconut.
  2. Add the coconut oil and maple syrup to the mixture and blend until combined, stop and push down the sides with a spoon as required.
  3. Using a heaped teaspoon, roll the mixture into balls and place on a large plate.
  4. Once all the mixture has been used, place the balls in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  5. After 30 minutes, its time to melt the chocolate. To do this, place the chocolate pieces into a small microwave safe bowl and microwave for 20-30s, until completely melted.
  6. Coat the balls in chocolate, and then roll into desiccated coconut one at a time.
  7. Once complete, place them in the refrigerator to set and enjoy!

You can store lamington bites in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. Rediscover your childhood favs reimagined with our signature plant-based twist.

We served our lamington balls on coconut plates. They look terrific and taste great too!
