Grain-Free Chocolate-Chip Cookie Cake

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Who doesn’t like a cookie cake? Growing up, my favorite birthday cake was the cookie cake. Nowadays, I’m not a big fan of all the refined sugar and gluten that goes in them. But that doesn’t mean the party stops here. Hell no!

Today, I make my own party. With this grain free chocolate chip cookie cake.

Ingredients:

Wet ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup creamy nut butter

Dry ingredients:

  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • ¾ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

Add in’s:

  • ½ cup chocolate chunks or chips (I use Lily’s Sugar free)

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. Grease a round 9 inch round baking dish well
  3. Mix together wet ingredients
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix well
  5. Fold in chocolate chunks
  6. Pour into baking dish and bake for 18-20 minutes
  7. Will stay good for 5 days or longer in fridge and freezer

*Note– If you would like to make a larger cookie cake, double this recipe and put in a larger pan. I haven’t personally tried doubling it, so I don’t know the exact baking time it would require. I’d put it in for 20-25 and then keep an eye on it every 5 minutes after that. And remember, this cake will still continue to bake after it’s removed from the oven, so under-baking is always the best and safest method.

Enjoy!
