The athletes pie

Updated: Apr 13

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 -
