  • 1 egg
  • ¼ c salted butter, melted
  • ½ c peanut butter
  • ¼ c brown sugar
  • ¼ c maple syrup
  • 1 c almond flour
  • 1 T milk of choice
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt plus more for top if desired
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk egg to beat.
  • Add in maple, butter, vanilla, and milk and whisk. Add brown sugar and whisk.
  • Stir in peanut butter to combine.
  • In another bowl, combine, almond flour, baking soda, and sea salt and stir.
  • Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Pour dough into an 8" cast iron skillet coated with desired oil to season.
  • Sprinkle extra sea salt over the dough.
  • Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until edges begin to brown and cookie is cooked through. (I like mine to be a bit gooey still so I can eat it with a spoon, 18 minutes please!)
  • Allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes before eating. (Ha, like that is gonna happen...)


  • Almond flour, even the finest can still be a slight bit gritty. The cookie my have a bit of that texture that comes through. Still tastes AMAZING if you ask me.
  • I use natural creamy peanut butter--the kind you have to stir. I recommend it in any recipe. It's much thinner and easy to stir. I find the store brand I get is a great price and does the job well. I use Kroger brand a lot! Crazy Richard's is my other FAVORITE.
  • I bake mine 18-20 minutes so it still has a gooey center. If that is not for you, cook it closer to 22 minutes or so.
