Sugar Free Quick and Easy Lamington Recipe

These coconut cubes are begging to anyone who is fond of coconut and chocolate to have them! We don’t have to be an Aussie to love life!

Fancy welcoming New Year with a new sweet treat or rather something traditional? Love chocolate and coconut? We certainly do. So here’s one of our favorite low carb dessert we can’t imagine our New Year’s Eve without. Chocolate coconut cubes are kind of traditional in some part of Europe. In Australia they are called Lamingtons and served in the festive season. But we are quite sure it could be a completely new thing for a lot of cake lovers especially this sugar free recipe. As it is with most of our low carb cake recipes it’s even suitable dessert for diabetics given it’s non existent sugar content.
