Friends! It's National Best Friend's Day! I'm deviating from my regular posting schedule to share this extra SPECIAL recipe with you. Strawberry Chocolate Chip Skillet Cake! YUM!!! I know you want to grab a spoon and dive in.
Kelli and I met last year at IDEA, a health and fitness conference. From the moment we met at the airport, we instantly hit it off and were stuck together like glue. We laughed so much that weekend I swear my abs never had such a good workout.
I actually met Kelli before the conference. I had been stalking her blog for years because she always had a wealth of information.
Then one day she contacted me about my amenorrhea so we met for coffee and talked about my complicated hormone history with her. I also recommended my functional doctor who was able to help get her periods back naturally.
Even though we met months prior to the conference, we didn't hit it off until that weekend away.
Since then we've been inseparable and I'm thankful every day to have her in my life. It's hard as a middle-aged, single woman to find good friends.
As friends get married, have children and move away, it's hard to maintain those friendships.
Friends you can depend on whenever you need them are hard to come by which is why you hold onto them whenever you find them, and Kelli is a friend I couldn't imagine my life without!
So let's cheers to best friends by diving into this Strawberry Chocolate Chip Skillet Cake!
This cake is one you can feel good about eating because it's made with wholesome ingredients. Healthier and lighter so it's waist friendly, yet just as good as the real deal!
As you know, I like to keep the sugar content low of my recipes low sugar, and this one falls into that category. The strawberries add natural sweetness and that's enough for me!
