Paleo and Vegan Skillet Cookie

Posted Friday, 1 September 2017   |   716 views   |   Family & Home   |   Comments (0) Cooked in a skillet (or frying pan for those of us in the UK), this ultimate cookie is gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, milk-free, vegan AND paleo. That makes it practically guilt-free too... right? Best eaten fresh out of the oven with a spoon, it's just what we're craving for Bake Off's biscuit week.

Gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, paleo and vegan cookie. Original recipe by Georgina Young (www.greensofthestoneage.com)

Serves 4 | Prep 10 mins | Cook 20-25 mins | Calories 567 (per serving)


·  chia egg mix – 1 tbsp chia seeds (milled) mixed with 3 tbsp water

·  75g (2¾oz) ground almonds

·  150g (1¾oz) pitted Medjool dates, pitted

·  60g (2oz) coconut flour

·  60g (2oz) tapioca flour

·  60ml (2fl oz) coconut oil

·  2 tbsp coconut milk powder (optional)

·  1 tbsp maca powder (optional)

·  1 tbsp lucuma powder (optional)

·  1 tsp vanilla extract

·  1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

·  a pinch of fine Himalayan pink salt

·  a generous handful of cacao butter wafers, chopped into chips 

1. Combine the chia seeds with 3 tbsp water. Stir thoroughly, then set aside.

2. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4.

3. Combine all the remaining ingredients, except the wafers, in a food processor.

4. Add the chia egg. Pulse a few times, before processing until the dough comes together into a smooth ball. Remove your dough and knead in the wafers.

5. Lightly grease a 25cm (10in) cast iron pan with a little coconut oil, then press the dough in with the palm of your hand until evenly distributed.

6. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden brown and firm to the touch. A toothpick should come out clean.

7. Leave to cool for 5 minutes before serving.
