Notes
Nutritional Calculations are estimated using the brand of ingredients that I used, please adjust according to your specific brands. The nutritional value was calculated based on ¼ c Honey which was perfectly sweet and delicious for my family. For a chocolate chip cookie cake, I have also added one egg which gives it a light and airy cake consistency.... see picture below. Adding an egg will add an additional 0.3 g fat and 0.4 g protein per serving
