How to Make a Keto Cookie Skillet

Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and lightly grease an oven-proof skillet. It doesn’t have to be cast iron, but it does need to  be oven safe.

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the almond flour, salt, and baking soda.

TIP: For a little something extra, you can also swap out 3/4 cup of the almond flour for unsweetened shredded coconut.

Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, cream your softened butter. Mix in the sweetener, egg, and vanilla extract. Next, add your bowl of dry ingredients and mix until you have a thick batter.

Allow it to cool at least 15 minutes before serving. It will continue to firm up as it cools so if cutting to serve in pieces allow it to cool completely.

Bake for 25 minutes, until the cookie starts to turn a gorgeous light golden brown.

NOTE: The cookie will be very soft when removed from the oven. It will seem like it isn’t cooked all the way through, but it really is! Allow the cookie to set for 10-15 minutes to firm up…then dig in!!

What are the best low carb toppings for a keto cookie cake?

This cookie taste amazing on its own, but if you want to take things to the next level, try one of these keto-friendly toppings:

  • Sugar free chocolate syrup
  • Homemade whipped cream — cream itself is high fat and low in carbs, so if you whip up your own using a touch of sugar substitute, you’ve got keto-friendly whipped cream!
  • Keto ice cream — You can find quite the variety in stores these days!
