You know what’s so great about a skillet cookie? First of all, it’s BIG and cookies are just better when they’re big! Also, it’s way easier to make- there’s none of the spooning out of batter onto a cookie sheet. There’s no waiting on one sheet of cookies to bake to start on yet another sheet to bake. Nope- pour the batter in your oven safe 9-10 inch skillet (it does not have to be an iron skillet), bake and that’s it.

While an iron skillet isn’t a must, it’s just so darn cute isn’t it? This is the perfect dessert to make when having dinner guests… so easy and such a fun presentation. Plus, who doesn’t love huge, soft, chewy, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies? After baking, you can let the cookie cool and cut it into triangular slices (nice and pretty) or just go for it and dig in with your forks… and spoons!

This big chocolate chip cookie bakes up warm with a nutty flavor and soft, chewy texture.... scrumptious to the last crumb!


  • 1 1/4 cup almond meal/flour (I use Bob's Red Mill brand)
  • 3/4 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut (I use Bob's Red Mill brand)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar (brown sugar would also work)
  • 2 teaspoons molasses (optional)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate baking chips (I use Enjoy Life brand)


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9-10 inch oven safe skillet (does not have to be cast iron).
  • Whisk dry ingredients (almond flour to salt) in medium bowl.
  • Stir wet ingredients and sugar (coconut oil to vanilla) together in a large bowl.
  • Add almond flour mixture to wet mixture; stir to combine and then stir in chocolate chips.
  • Spread dough in prepared skillet and bake for 18-20 minutes, until light golden brown.
  • Cookie will be very soft and won't seem cooked enough. Let cool at least 15 minutes before serving. To serve in pieces, rather than spooning the cookie out, cool completely.
  • Enjoy!
