This Paleo Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie is the ultimate gooey dessert! This gluten free and refined sugar free skillet cookie is a healthier alternative to the classic Pizookie. Use big chocolate chunks to make it extra chocolatey!Ooey…gooey…doughy…with big, melted chunks of dark chocolate. Those are the words I like to hear when we’re talking about gooey chocolate chip skillet cookies, don’t you?

The biggest perk of a skillet cookie is the increased ratio of gooey insides to the crispy, golden outside. When you dig into the center of a skillet cookie with your spoon and get a perfect mix of melted chocolate, barely cooked doughy center, and crispy edges, there isn’t really anything better.

Use big chocolate chunks to make it extra chocolatey!Unless, of course, you add a scoop of vanilla ice cream right on top (preferably while the cookie is still warm). The total and utter deliciousness of the whole combination is probably why Pizookie’s have become such a popular thing.

But, uh, Pizookie’s (and most of it’s skillet cookie sisters) aren’t exactly diet-friendly. So, in the name of Paleo sweets, I took matters into my own hands and converted my Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe into a skillet cookie worthy of your strongest chocolate cookie craving. And it totally worked, because this Paleo-friendly skillet cookie rocks.

Use big chocolate chunks to make it extra chocolatey!It may or may not have served as my lunch, afternoon snack, and dessert the day it was made (#noshame) – it’s that good. And it also made me realize that when people ask me how I don’t eat all my stuff and I tell them that I normally just “taste” my treats…I’m lying 😳 because I totally devoured this thing.

I just couldn’t help myself! It’s rich and crispy thanks to the coconut oil and egg yolk. It’s lightly sweetened with coconut sugar and of course, the big dark chocolate chunks. Those chocolate chunks are key for the ultimate treat! If you want to make sure you keep this skillet cookie 100% refined sugar free, make your own Paleo-friendly chocolate chunks.

Use big chocolate chunks to make it extra chocolatey!I go nuts for everything sprinkled with a bit of flaky sea salt, and this cookie is no exception. The salt is such a perfect foil to the crispy edges and rich chocolate. I tossed a big pinch of flaky sea salt right on top of the unbaked dough, but I know salty/sweet is a personal thing, so skip it if you’re not crazy for it like I am.

This recipe makes a modestly sized 5-inch skillet cookie – it’s enough to feed 2-4 people for dessert I’d say, depending on how hungry you are! Of course, you could also double the recipe and bake it in a larger skillet for a group of people, but be sure to adjust up the baking time if you do that.

Err on the side of under-baking for this one, and you’ll be rewarded with the gooiest skillet cookie you ever did see. Get baking, and enjoy!

    I tried to make it with coconut flour… worst mistake ever! Horrible! Turned out so crumbly/chalky… it was like I was doing the cinnamon challenge, I actually choked!

    • Hi Emily. Sorry that happened to you! Unfortunately, coconut flour doesn’t perform similarly to any other flour because it’s WAY more absorbent. It requires a much smaller amount be used and way more liquid than almond flour. I wouldn’t recommend using coconut flour in any recipes except ones specifically designed for it.

  22. Looks amazing. Might be perfect for my husband’s birthday! How do you measure a skillet? I have a little one. When I measure the bottom, it’s a little more than 5″ in diameter, but on top (from edge to edge) it’s more like 7″

    • Hi Amy – the top is usually used as the diameter, but I’ve found they’re not always exact. A pan your size sounds similar to the one I have, so it should work just fine for this recipe. Hope your husband loves it for his bday! :)

  23. It was SOOOO delicious! Been on paleoish diets for years and this is the dessert I will happily make for non-paleo friends. Everyone will love it.

  24. OKAAAAYYY So I just made this for the very first time and it is quite possibly the best thing I’ve ever had. Better than any pizookie or cookie I’ve ever had actually. I was skeptical at first because…hello. paleo. BUT UM- THIS IS INCREDIBLE. INCREDIBLE. Thank you very much.

  25. This was so amazingly good! Thank you for sharing! Next time I’m doubling the recipe :-) !!
