Paleo Pizookie

It’s a Pizza, It’s a Cookie, It’s a Paleo Pizookie!

Paleo Pizookie

No need to adjust your screens. This is a Paleo Pizookie. I know. Let’s have a moment of silence for all the other processed crap gluten filled Pizookies that you will no longer be eating. And…we’re back! Can we get so excited about this now?! So I got these mini cast iron skillets and how cute are they? I want to make everything in them. Seriously like everything. And then when I’m done I want to cuddle with them and tuck them in bed because they are like my little cute babies. I’ll give you a hint, the next item I may or may not be making in these cutie patooties might just be a brownie sundae. Yes. You read correctly. You may be wondering if you are reading the correct blog at this point. I assure you, you are. I told you I had a dirty mind.

So how was your week? I Paleo dessert catered my first wedding! The mission I chose to accept (yes I like to think I’m a secret Paleo agent) was to create a dessert table for 100 guests consisting of mixed Paleo goodies. The bride went over my catering menu (blog) and together we decided on my regular Triple Chocolate Brownies (used vanilla extract instead of mint and a plain dark chocolate bar), Mint Triple Chocolate Brownies, Brown Buttered Snicker-drool-dles, Chocolate Banana Bread Truffles, a “Reese’s” Cheesecake, single serving Chocolate Raspberry Trifles and personal sized Salted Caramel Cheesecakes for the bride and groom. They are big cheesecake fans and big Paleo fans. Dinner was even catered by Pete’s Paleo! The lamb they served was INCREDIBLE! It was so nice to actually go to a wedding, or any place for that matter, and not have to make any special requests or have to navigate around the food, I could just EAT IT ALL! Cue the ‘Hallelujah’ choir music. After the meal I got the opportunity to introduce myself to Pete and let him know what I big fan I was. I told him I catered the Paleo desserts, so please try some, and I also write a blog called ‘Clean Eating with a Dirty Mind.’ He replied, “Oh yeah I’ve heard about it.” And then I proceeded to act incredibly cool and nonchalant even though I was totally freaking out. Thank you for the bravado wine. You are the greatest.

So the wedding was great and the desserts were a huge hit, and I realized how happy it makes me to see people eating and enjoying my food. All in all it took about 10 hours to prepare the food, over two days and two missed dinners, I can’t eat mid cook! Then another hour and a half to plate and arrange everything the day of. The moral of the story? I now look at caterers in a whole new light and will never be catering anything ever again! So don’t ask. Love you! Special shout out to CrossFit Jen Nila (Ja-Nila) for helping me cut, plate, and arrange everything and for sitting through the ceremony (which we almost missed) with sticky hands covered in chocolate. That’s true friendship people. So overall it went extremely well, no major catastrophes except one…my hands were too full carrying stuff at one point and I dropped and shattered my iPhone. Of all days. No worries, I’m one of those schmucks that pays for the insurance so I had a brand new iPhone over-nighted and in my no-longer chocolate covered hands the very next day. Problem solved, crisis averted. So put your phone somewhere safe before you run off to make these Paleo Pizookies. I don’t think insurance covers cookie dough related accidents.

    Paleo Chocolate Chip Pizookie
    *Makes 2 mini skillets, 4-6 servings

    2 cups sifted blanched almond flour
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon sea salt
    1 cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips (soy free, dairy free)
    1 organic cage-free egg
    1/3 cup raw honey (melted)
    1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla Extract

    1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

    2. Grease your mini 6″ cast iron skillets.

    3. In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, baking soda, and salt with a fork.

    4. Add the chocolate chips to the dry mixture and combine.

    5. In a small separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together, honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and egg. You may need to heat the honey and coconut oil in order to liquefy them, remember to heat before you add the egg.

    6. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry until evenly mixed.

    7. Let the dough chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Then fill both skillets evenly with dough. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Garnish with coconut milk ice cream and enjoy!


You have some chocolate on your face. It’s cool, I don’t think anyone noticed. This recipe is fun because you could get really creative with it. You could add macadamia nuts, almonds, walnuts or make half & half Pizookies. Like half chocolate chip, half almond butter cookie. You could also get creative with different coconut milk ice cream flavors. I just used vanilla. Booooring. But I have a blog to run here people, you understand, don’t you? You could even drizzle some chocolate sauce or Paleo Caramel Sauce on top, the possibilities are really endless. It’s your Pizookie, do what you want! Until next week…I’ll be taking a nap.

  9. can I use oat flour instead of wheat ? Thanks so much!

  10. […] 2. Paleo Chocolate Chip Pizookie […]

  11. I just tried to make this and it was so floury, I even tried to add a little coconut milk to make it better but it turned out really dry. any recommendations? thanks!

    • Hmm it could be a few things, you may be using a grainy almond flour which won’t mix as well. I recommend Honeyville brand for the beat results. The other thing is you could be over measuring, try spooning the flour into the mesuring cup instead of scooping it out. Also double check to make sure you added all the ingredients in the right amounts. Im the worst at this! I think I know what the recipe said and then I re-read it and realize I got it all wrong. I hope this helps you troubleshoot!

  12. Can you use cocnut flour instead of almond flour?

  13. So I made these last night and accidentally turned them into brownies. I melted the coconut oil for a little too long, and in turn, it melted the chocolate chips. They were still incredible!

  14. Will Almond meal work instead of Almond flour?

    Would avocado oil work instead of coconut?

  19. Can I make smaller cookies with this recipe? Would they turn out, if I decrease the baking time?

  20. Also, where can I find coconut milk ice cream? That looks amazing!

    • Usually any natural foods store like Sprouts, Whole Foods, or Jimbos carry coconut milk ice cream. I really like the Coconut Bliss brand. Also I have a super simple vanilla ice cream recipe listed in the Cookie Dough ‘Whoa’ Ice Cream Sandwiches. It’s made with coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. It’s really simple. :) Hope that helps!

  23. For the honey and coconut oil, do you measure then melt or melt then measure?

  24. Can you put the almond flour in a Vitamix for a few seconds vs sifting? I have been sifting for about 10 mins! Maybe I need a new sifter?!

    • Haha what kind of almond flour are you using?! You could try breaking it down in the vitamix, just don’t leave it on long enough for the oils to release or it will start to turn into almond butter πŸ˜‰ basically you just want the finest texture possible. For future endeavors I recommend Honeyville almond flour sifted once. πŸ˜‰ good luck!!!

      • I am using Nature’s Eat Blanched Almond Flour. It took forever to get the last 2Tbsp sifted!! I read in a previous comment I should sift the almond flour then measure. I measured and then sifted. So I’ll change for next time. Mine also browned REALLY fast. By 30 mins it was a dark brown and cripsy on the edges. Tasted good though. Perhaps too much flour?!

  25. Can I bake this in something besides cast iron skillet?

  26. I am NOT just paleo by choice but for health reasons. I am a true celiac and severely allergic to dairy, eggs, tapioca starch, soy, shellfish, and peanuts. I am so thankful for the Paleo community because now I don’t feel so alone anymore and get to enjoy my life and food so much more! Thank you all for your delicious recipes! Any suggestions for substutes on how to make the pizza chocolate chip skillet cookie without the egg?

    • Hmm that’s a great question! Have you ever tried the flax egg trick? I never have so I don’t know if it would work, but I might start there? Or is there some sort of egg substitute you can buy at the store? I swear I’ve seen it before!!! Good luck! Sorry about all your allergies :( I didn’t win the genetic lottery either if it makes you feel better! hahaha. :)

  27. can you use coconut flour instead? thanks :)

    How do u feel about someone stealing your pics and exact wording for their own benefit. Contact me if you’d like information on who is… Didn’t know how else to contact you. Plagiarizing drives me crazy!

    Thank you. Great pics by the way!!

    • OH HAILLLL NO! Who stole my stuff! Let’s beat ’em up! Thanks for letting me know! I really appreciate it. I’m so happy you like the pics! They were actually taken with an iPhone. Haha. I got a real camera though to photography my cookbook with, so I’m going to bring it up a notch on the blog too. πŸ˜‰

        Any chance you would directly email me so I can share a screenshot of who’s stealing your pics as their own? I can’t paste it here.

        But seriously your iPhone pics are great can’t wait to see what you can do with a “real” camera.
