Since making my mother go paleo I have found myself baking and making more treats then I ever have before. I don't typically eat these snacks or treats because that's what they are, snacks and treats, but for the person transitioning into a new lifestyle I see the need for snacks or sweets more often then not. Anyways, it was my mom's birthday, so I made her this delicious paleo cookie cake and I am just sharing the recipe. Don't let the ingredients list and directions scare you, this was seriously so simple and quick to make. This was also legit an amazing cookie cake. Everyone in my family loved it and my mom forgot it was even paleo. I do have to point out though that there is absolutely no nutritional benefit from this cake and making a paleo treat does not mean it is a healthy treat! It's just a treat that uses paleo friendly ingredients for those with food allergies or those who are cutting out certain foods from their diet. After plugging this recipe into MyFitnessPal, 18 servings yields 19g of Carbs, 22g of Fat, and 4g of Protein per serving, and again that's if you can cut this cookie cake into 18 slices. Did I just convince you not to make this now? I am the worst. To make it a little less caloric and high in fat you can definitely remove one of the fudge layers or just cut the fudge ingredients in half - both layers had a TON of fudge when I dumped it on the cake. Also, you can just make chocolate chip cookies out of the "cake" layer if you want too. There, I convinced you that you can still make this and enjoy it a little more guilt-free! Seriously though this dessert was super delicious!
