What could be more indulgent than three unique desserts combined into one tempting treat? A chewy chocolate chip cookie crust is layered with fluffy dark chocolate mousse, then finished with a creamy layer of strawberry whipped cream.

Each layer of this cookie lasagna has only a handful of ingredients. The cookie layer is made from a base of gluten-free almond flour to mimic traditional cookie dough.

For the simple mousse layer, you’ll only need raw cacao powder with ultra-rich coconut cream and stevia. Tip: You can use the mousse as a pie filling, a frosting in place of buttercream, or simply eaten as a treat by itself. Similarly, the strawberry whip layer can be used to fill Paleo pies, pastries, and cake too.

Begin by pressing the cookie dough into the bottom of an 8×8 inch baking pan. Bake until the edges are golden brown, then allow it to cool completely before spreading the chocolate mousse layer on top to prevent melting. Refrigerate to set while preparing the strawberry whip. In a food processor, blend strawberries, coconut cream and stevia until smooth, then add chopped strawberries and pulse just long enough to combine without breaking down the chunks. Smooth the strawberry layer on top and chill 30 minutes longer to set. Slice into squares and serve. It’s perfect for warm weather entertaining!
