How To Make Moong Macadamia Lamingtons

Try This Australian Classic with a Twist

You will absolutely love my lamington recipe – made from Moong Beans, Macadamia nuts and Buckwheat Flour that make them taste purely delicious. 

The secret to coating your lamingtons is to lightly spread the Cacao thinly and delicately over the  cake - then lightly dip in your coconut.

Be gentle - make them with love and you'll have the most delicious lamingtons you've ever tasted.
