Triple Chocolate Italian Cheesecake (not GAPS legal…sorry!!)

by Brenda on

If you’re on the GAPS diet, you will hate me for this recipe. I found it in my stack of made-up recipes from “way back when” and I just couldn’t throw it away. I have to post it, to put it out there for somebody who will be searching the internet for a recipe like this….

Did you know that I once created over 30 recipes for the Pilsbury Bake Off Contest? Yup. I was going to win a million dollars. Ha! :) (If I would have continued down that path, I would have spent all of that $ on doctor’s bills to treat the chronic diseases I was creating in myself!)……Not to make you feel guilty if you’re here for the cheesecake and not for a healthy-eating-schpeel. ;) But really, check out the rest of my site and read Gut and Psychology Syndrome, and learn how to change your health. My life is entirely different than it was when I was eating these kinds of foods….but, if you really want to make a tasty cheesecake (that cannot possibly be altered to fit the GAPS diet…Sorry, friends), here it is!
