Paleo Cookie Cake

Hiya eaters!

I could talk about how terrible the massacre in Connecticut was. I could talk about how unbelievably gut wrenching the idea of someone killing dozens of completely innocent children is. But, I’m not going to.

I’m much more of a fan of doing extra living in times of tragedy.

And luckily, this weekend I got to do lots of living because a bunch of friends rented a lake house for the weekend.

We ate lots of pizza.

Drank far too much.

Lounged in a hot tub.

It was fantastic!

And now I’m detoxing from all the fun by drinking liters of water and eating a massive salad.

Mmmmweekend.

But if you aren’t detoxing from beer Olympics and eating two pizzas in one day or if you’re still looking for some festive living, here’s that paleo (I think) cookie cake recipe I teased you with on Wednesday.

Possibly Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

First, is agave paleo? I’ve got no clue. Second, this can definitely be paleo if you want to splurge on egg protein instead of the more common whey protein. I know GNC has AWESOME egg protein.

Also, this was adapted from this Purely Twins recipe.

1 ½ c almond flour

½ c vanilla protein

½ t salt

2 eggs

3 T agave

½ c coconut oil

½ c apple sauce

1 T vanilla extract

large handful of chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or carob chips

a few shakes of rainbow sprinkles

Mix the dry ingredients in one bowl. Mix the wet ingredients in another bowl. Mix all the ingredients together.

Grease an 8”-9” cake pan and bake in a 350F oven for 20-23 minutes.

Once the cake has cooled slice it up and dig it.

I suggest slicing it into 6 pieces because this cookie cake just happens to be perfectly Zone balanced at 12 total blocks, meaning that you can easily enjoy a 2 block slice.

And if you’re feeling extra festive I suggest mixing a little bit of honey and vanilla with some Greek yogurt to make icing.

Because what’s cookie cake without icing?

So here’s to living a little more in the face of realizing just how lucky we all are to be living.

Your turn, eaters:

What’s your favorite style of cake — cookie, traditional, or ice cream?

What’s your favorite part of the cake — cake or icing?

G’night eaters!

    Agave is totally paleo. If you're ever up $.99 and want to get a helpful app, I have (and use) Paleo Central and it's made by the guy who runs Nerd Fitness. It's awesome!
