Ingredients

Cookie Cake

Frosting (double if you prefer a lot of frosting)

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened (Earth Balance for dairy-free)
  • 1 tablespoon half + half (full fat coconut milk for dairy-free)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Swerve Confectioner Sugar Replacement 
  • 2.5 tablespoons cocoa powder (Droste Cocoa for richer color and flavor)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, guar gum, gelatin and baking soda. Add Swerve Brown Sugar and whisk vigorously until evenly incorporated. (I use my hands to break up any lumps.)
  2. Add melted butter, vanilla extract, molasses and egg. Combine by hand until a sticky dough forms. Add chocolate chips and work them into the dough evenly. Form dough into a ball.
  3. Place your ball of dough onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Press dough out into a circular shape, about 7-8 inches in diameter using your hands to cup the sides to make the circle nice and tidy.
  4. Place in a preheated oven and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then rotate the pan 180 degrees and bake an additional 6 minutes.
  5. Remove and place cookie sheet on top of oven to cool. The cookie will still be soft in the middle at this point, it will firm up to the perfect texture during the cooling process-you will want the middle moist and a touch gooey. You can choose to eat it warm, just make sure to let it cool 20 minutes first (it will still be plenty warm) then carefully and quickly lift the cookie cake up by gripping the sides of the parchment paper and then set it down on a cake stand, large plate or serving board.
  6. While you’re waiting for the cookie to cool, go ahead and whip up your frosting. Place softened butter, half + half and vanilla in a medium to large mixing bowl. Whisk Swerve Confectioner, cocoa powder and salt over top. Blend with hand mixer on medium, then switch to high until frosting is smooth and creamy. (Add a touch more milk for a thinner/creamier frosting, or more Swerve for a thicker frosting).
  7. Pipe frosting around the edges of the cake or a dollop on each slice. Cut, serve and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight tupperware-like container.
