Definitely our favourite Aussie  recipe, especially for celebrating the Australia Day Long Weekend!   It’s a healthy twist on this aussie classic.  Gluten free, nut & dairy free, delicious and nutritious.  My 8 year old, Chloe, favourite part, (apart from devouring) is covering the little cakes in chocolate & rolling in the coconut.  Great fun – Enjoy!
