This recipe is gluten free, dairy free, low in sugar and contains organic ingredients. The edges have the perfect cookie crunch and the middle has a soft and moist cake texture. Plus, the fresh strawberries and dark chocolate chips give it a yummy and unique taste! You can still stay on track with your fitness goals while occasionally indulging in this healthy treat. The powdered sugar is made with 1 tablespoon of stevia and 1 tablespoon of arrowroot starch. Have a great day!😊👍

Recipe: Modified from Julia’s Album

Dry Ingredients:

1 ½ cups brown rice flour
1 ½ tsp gluten/aluminum free baking powder
1/8 tsp sea salt

Wet Ingredients:

3 tbsp organic virgin coconut oil (room temperature)
1 organic cage free egg
½ cup organic coconut palm sugar
½ cup organic unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp organic pure vanilla extract

Add ins:

1/3 cup Enjoy Life’s dark chocolate chips
2 cups organic ripe strawberries (halved, and super ripe for extra sweetness)

Preheat oven to 350°F and line a 9×5 round baking dish with parchment paper (preferably non stick).

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Add wet ingredients into a food processor and blend until you get a light and fluffy texture.

Combine wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated, but do not over mix. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Your batter will be slightly sticky but fluffy.

Pour batter into the baking dish and spread out until all edges of the dish are evenly covered. Top your batter with halved strawberries and transfer into the oven. Bake for 55 minutes.

When ready, take your cookie cake out of the oven and let it cool for about 30 minutes. Top with powdered sugar and devour with a warm glass of egg nog😉
