Vegan Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

This is the cookie cake to end all cookie cakes!  It is SO good you guys!  It is like a giant soft-baked chocolate chip cookie that you can frost, slice up and serve like a piece of cake.   I don’t know if life gets any better than that!  It is everything we all love about chocolate chip cookies in cake form.

I have been trying to master the perfect cookie cake for so long now.  I’ve never been fully satisfied with any cookie cake recipe I’ve ever followed.  They are always too crumbly, hard, thin or just not good!  And this year for the girls’ birthdays they both asked for cookie cakes for their birthday dessert.  Riley’s birthday falls on Passover and she is vegan, hence this grain-free cake was born.

The cake is perfectly studded with chocolate chips throughout.  I reserve some for topping off the cake just before baking once the dough is pressed into the pan.  This helps with the overall presentation.  I also sometimes like to use a combination of mini and regular sized chocolate chips.  It is the best of both worlds and ensures every bite is chocolate chip perfection.
 
If you are staying away from refined sugars you can use these refined sugar-free chocolate gems in place of the chips and skip the frosting.

This is the kind of dessert that makes me feel like a kid again.  It is actually easier (and more impressive) than making cookies since you don’t have to chill the dough or roll the dough into individual cookies.

It is fun and can be decorated however you want! Here I’m showing it with my homemade vegan chocolate frosting (recipe below in recipe card).  It’s incredibly creamy, silky, smooth and rich.  It holds its shape beautifully, so it’s perfect for piping into fancy designs.

Description

This indulgent Vegan Grain-Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake is perfect to make for your next celebration!  It is soft and rich in the center with chewy golden brown edges.  It is naturally sweetened and uses all gluten-free and plant-based ingredients.  You can decorate it with my homemade vegan chocolate frosting if desired.  This recipe is quick and easy to make too!


Scale

Ingredients

For the cookie cake:

  • 3/4 cup raw creamy almond butter
  • 1/3 cup melted unrefined coconut oil
  • 5 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups blanched super fine almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
  • 1 cup mini vegan chocolate chips (Hu gems for refined sugar-free)

For the vegan chocolate frosting (optional):

  • 1/3 cup soy-free, vegan butter (softened not melted)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup organic, all natural powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Splash or two of non-dairy milk (~1 tablespoon of almond milk)

Instructions

For the cookie cake:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Trace the edge of a circular 8-inch baking pan on a piece of parchment paper and cut out the circle.  Grease the baking pan with coconut oil and place the circle-shaped parchment paper at the bottom.  Do not skip this step.
  2. Stir together the ingredients and transfer the cookie dough onto the parchment-lined and greased baking pan.  Press a new sheet of parchment paper against the cookie dough and use the bottom of a glass to flatten into one even layer.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes until edges are just starting to become golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow to fully cool before slicing or frosting (at least one hour).

For the frosting:

  1. Beat softened butter with a hand mixer on low speed until light and fluffy. Then add vanilla and beat again on low speed.
  2. Add powdered sugar and cocoa powder 1/2 cup at a time and continue mixing until creamy. You may want to increase the speed slightly.
  3. Drizzle in a little non-dairy milk if clumpy. I used 1 tablespoon of unsweetened vanilla almond milk but any plant-based milk will work. Mix until smooth and creamy. Place into a piping bag with tip of choice and frost your cookie cake however you want!  Slice and serve!  Store. leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to five days.  After storing, allow the cookie cake to come back to room temperature before enjoying.

Notes

You can reserve a handful of chocolate chips to decorate the raw cookie dough in the pan just before baking.  Once you have pressed the cookie dough into the pan lightly press the extra chocolate chips overtop the dough.  This helps with the presentation of the cake.
