I've cooked for some of the best athletes on the planet (watch my show on amazon and check out how) and one thing I have learned from that is that they LOOOOOOVE anything cake!
So in dedication of all those cake loving athletes, I bring to you the Athletes pie. This baby is gluten free and dairy free and it's made on raw sweet potatoes as the base.
It's the perfect bite for a ride or a run or if you're having the family or some friends over for dinner or coffee... basically there is not an event where the athletes pie won't be a success.
Once baked hide it from your family because it will disappear from the fridge if you are not careful.
And just like with cake - athletes loves sleep - we are starting a community to help you get better sleep, sign up here - https://mailchi.mp/hannahgrant/sleep
