The LAST recipe of 2017! It’s here! And on a Friday too? I must be feeling good!
But honestly, who wouldn’t be after taking a bit of this little number?!
Yep, this beaut of a Paleo Sweet Potato Cookie Cake speaks for itself, but I’ll try to do some verbal justice.
Moist, gooey in the center, chocolatey, buttery, and not too sweet, this cake is absolutely perfect for dessert, a snack, or even breakfast (hey, I wouldn’t put it past me haha!).
Does it get any better? I think not. Plus it’s completely nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and added sugar-free (there are natural sugars that occur in sweet potato, so that’s where you’ll see it!). You know me- I’m always trying to find ways for everyone to enjoy food. Some people, like my boyfriend, can’t have sugar because of chronic Lyme disease, and others are allergic to nuts or gluten.
It’s not about what’s not in the food, but how the food makes you feel, both physically and mentally. I feel better eating this way, but I certainly don’t judge those that want the traditional cookie. There’s nothing wrong with either way.
That being said, I challenge you to try this skillet and find the taste difference between the two because you’ll be hard-pressed to find any notable changes haha!
Give this skillet a whirl and let me know what you think! I’d love to see your creations as well, so tag me with #iyamlove so that I can see J
Happy Last Friday of 2017!
