Did you ever have this great intention to make something so decadent and delicious, but then it falls through and you’re left starting over?
Sometimes that happens with keto dessert recipes, but sometimes, it turns out better than that first intention. Such is the case with this recipe I’m sharing today.
As a busy mom, I’m always looking for simple dessert recipes, ones that take little effort in the kitchen but everyone loves and thinks you spent hours.
My orginial plan with this recipe was for the slow cooker. And in fact you could probably still make this in the slow cooker, but it doesn’t come out looking like this pie, more like bars instead.
The cast iron pan really creates that outer cookie crispness around the whole thing and the best part is that perfect gooey center.
After making this recipe twice in the slow cooker and doing some tweaks with the amounts of flour, I opted to try it a third time in a cast-iron skillet and I am so happy I did. Masterpiece right here!
The whole family was won over with the best keto chocolate chip skillet cookie they have ever had!
How to Make a Skillet Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Add your wet ingredients; unsalted butter, cream cheese, sour cream to a stand mixer or large bowl and blend until smooth.
Add the sweetener, vanilla extract, stevia and cream to the mixer and blend until combined.
Taste and adjust sweetener if needed.
Add the remaining dry ingredients to the mixer, except the chocolate chips. Blend until incorporated then stir in the chocolate chips by hand.
Grease a 9 inch cast iron skillet and spread the batter into the skillet.
Bake in a preheated oven for 35- 40 minutes or until a toothpick in center comes out clean and it’s got a nice golden brown color.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20-30minutes before serving.
Perfect Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Perfect outer edges like a cookie would typically have and the center is all soft and is truly a gooey chocolate chip cookie. I mean this is truly perfection!
My entire family and even the picky hubby loved this so much!
Even after a few days on the counter the hubby tried a piece and didn’t even warm it up, (what a shame in my opinion!), but still loved every bite. I think it’s a perfect keto dessert in my opinion!
No lie, this pie stays moist, but it really is awesome reheating a piece in the microwave for 30 seconds and topping with Sugar-Free Whipped Cream and some melted Sugar-Free Chocolate sauce!
Enjoy this sweet treat at room temperature or warm with some Sugar-Free Low Carb Vanilla Ice Cream!
Can I Change the Sweetener?
Yes if you don’t have Swerve, you can sub another low-carb brown sugar sweetener. Monk fruit is another great option.
I do not recommend coconut sugar as that is still a sugar and will spike ones blood sugar.
If you’d like to replace the teaspoon vanilla liquid stevia with another sweetener, please use my Sweetener Ultimate Guide & Conversion chart to help you determine how much to use.
Can I Swap Sesame flour with Almond Flour or Coconut Flour?
One of the most common questions I get on a daily basis is about swapping different keto flours.
Yes, you can easily swap the sesame flour with fine almond flour in this recipe. You can not evenly swap sesame flour with coconut flour as you would need to use much less and increase all liquids, including eggs.
I’ve made this twice using sesame seeds instead of the sesame flour and I must say the flour is better. The seeds while you can grind them in a blender, don’t provide a smooth texture as using the flour.
Nutritional information below does not include any toppings like the sugar free chocolate syrup or low carb ice cream. The nutritional data will also change if you are swapping the almond flour with almond flour.

- UPDATE NOVEMBER 2018: I recalculated the nutrition because I found that Sukrin has a fantastic sesame flour which contains 15 grams of fiber and only 6 carbs per 100 grams, making that one the best choice for using sesame flour over other brands.
