Nut-Free Coco Choc Date Lamington Balls

Nut free choc coconut Lamington balls
Today I’m continuing my series of easy allergy friendly treat recipes that your kids will love.

When I think of Coconut and Chocolate I automatically think, Lamingtons! So I’ve named these Coco Choc Date treats, Lamington Balls, because who doesn’t like a Lamington! If you are in the camp of ‘Lamingtons must have a raspberry jam filling’, go with the optional freeze dried raspberry center.

These freeze really well so you can make a big batch, pop one or two into a lunch box and they’ll defrost by morning tea time. The kids will think they are a treat, so don’t tell them they are healthy.
If you need some allergy friendly party snacks, pop them on a stick to make them look extra fancy.
