Hey, beautiful.

Sometimes, it’s simply fun to create baked goods that aren’t super healthy but are made from scratch and whole ingredients. This is one such recipe.

I was inspired to make this peanut butter cookie cake after perusing some food blogs, specifically LiveWellBakeOften. This version has been tweaked to be gluten-free and made from healthier ingredients, such as coconut oil and coconut sugar (both support a healthy metabolism).

I hope that you enjoy this dynamic dessert! I know those I served it to have. 😉

For the frosting…

I recommend you make chocolate frosting or a low-glycemic paleo frosting. All are delicious!
