Dairy Free, Family Friendly, Gluten Free, Simple & Fast, Sugar Free

Project Details

Lazy Daisy cake is a traditional birthday cake in our home. This year for my baby’s 11th birthday I recreated the favorite to be gluten/grain free, dairy free, and free of processed sugar! It was bowl licking good! 
Why I like this: it’s a really quick treat without guilt! The coconut oil, coconut flakes and flour have CLA in them an fatty acid that helps burn fat and retain muscle. Coconut is also a very health fat in general. I normally don’t use the microwave, but for this quick sweet treat I do.
