  • 5/8 cup almond flour (½ cup + 2 tbsp)
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
  • ¼ cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon kosher salt
  • cup coconut oil (can substitute other oil of choice)
  • 1 tablespoon egg *see notes for small-batch measuring

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a mini cast-iron skillet with coconut oil or prepare a baking sheet with coconut oil, parchment paper, or a silicone mat.

  • Add the coconut oil, egg, and vanilla extract and mix in with a spatula or spoon. It will take a moment to get everything mixed in well and to form a nice dough.

  • Put the dough in your prepared skillet or form 2 large dough balls and place them on your baking sheet. Bake the skillet cookie for 20-22 minutes (if you are making cookies, bake for 11-13 minutes). Once done, allow the cookie to cool for a few minutes before serving. For cookies, allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5-10 minutes so that they can firm up before serving. Enjoy!

  • This cookie recipe is cut down so you are only making enough for a small skillet or 2 large cookies. Because of this you only need a small amount of egg, but I still think it's needed. It makes the cookie chewy and soft, not to mention it helps bind all of the ingredients together. So, to get only 1 tbsp, just crack the egg into a small bowl and whisk for a few seconds. Measure out what you need for the cookie.
