Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet 

Ingredients:

1 large egg + 1 egg yolk

2/3 cup coconut oil or soft butter 

1/2 - 2/3 cup organic coconut sugar

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 3/4 cups almond flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 cup chopped dark chocolate/chips (I use a combination)

Optional topping- vegan ice cream 

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 180C/350F.

Grease two 6.5-inch skillets (or one 9–10-inch skillet).

Whisk together coconut oil and coconut sugar.

Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg-yolk until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, salt, and baking soda.

Add this mixture to the wet ingredients and mix well. Make sure there are no clumps.

Add in the chocolate chunks and transfer cookie dough into the skillet(s).

Sprinkle additional chocolate chips on top. 

Bake for around 15 minutes or until edges are golden and center set.

Sprinkle with sea salt. 

Cool and enjoy with your favorite vegan ice cream!
