Despite years of knowing this and doing it countless times over, I still think it’s absolutely crazy that you can use a nut butter as a base for baked goods instead of flour and they actually turn out! Blows my mind every time.

This time was no exception either and while I knew this paleo salted chocolate chip skillet cookie would turn out, I still sat there like a little kid in front of the oven door with my fingers crossed hoping it would bake up ok.

This paleo salted chocolate chip cookie skillet is as simple as 6 ingredients. Just mix and bake off for a decadent, gooey and chocolaty paleo dessert.

My willpower has been pretty on point over the last few months when it comes to eating things I shouldn’t be. Well, this recipe ruined me. The second pictures were done, that slice you see in the last picture below couldn’t get in my face fast enough. And then there was another small forkful, and another…and maybe another 5 minutes later after trying to walk away from it.

The only thing that saved me from face planting into the skillet itself was wrapping it up and promptly bringing it to the gym where it was attacked like people hadn’t eaten in a week and fought over for who got to take home the leftovers.

Words really won’t do this one justice. It’s decadent and chocolaty with crispy edges and a seriously gooey center. The sea salt on top makes each bite pop with that perfect salty sweet goodness and using cashew butter instead of another nut butter gives it an almost cake batter like undertone. I LOVE cashew butter for that and literally never walk out of Trader Joe’s with less than 3 jars of it at a time. Running out would honestly make me cry.

This Paleo salted chocolate chip cookie skillet is decadent, gooey, chocolatey and the perfect grain free dessert.

Make this. Eat this. Fall in love.

How do you think it would work to substitute the coconut sugar with granular stevia?

Honestly not sure. I don't tend to bake with stevia but if you do and know the ratio for subbing it into recipes instead of using "real" sugar, I'd give it a shot.

I want to make this for my sons birthday but only have a 10 inch skillet. What do you think about me doubling it?? If so, I'm curious about the cook time.

If you do it in a 10 inch, you might want to bake a few minutes less as it will be spread out thinner. I wouldn't double it unless you have a much larger skillet, even still, probably best to make 2 skillets rather than 1.

Looks amazing.

No offense, but coconut sugar isn't paleo or Keto.

I never said it was keto and it is paleo it's just not whole 30.

As soon as I'm done my Whole30 I am making this!!! Do you make your own cashew butter or buy it?

I usually buy it at Trader Joe's, it's so cheap there it doesn't make sense not to!
