Super decadent, ooey, gooey Caramel Chocolate Chip Deep Dish Cookies are the ultimate dessert.  There isn’t anything better than this ultra-delicious warm cookie fresh from the oven.  These deep dish cookies boast luscious caramel, chocolatey goodness, and are unbelievably scrumptious! Whole Food Plant Based recipe, no oil, no refined sugar, no highly processed ingredients, and gluten free.



Caramel Sauce Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup almond butter
  • ¼ cup 100% pure organic maple syrup 

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour, lightly packed
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon almond butter
  • 2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon date sugar
  • ¼ cup organic unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 Tablespoons unsweetened plain plant milk (we used almond milk)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (we used Enjoy Life Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mega Chunks.  Also, Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chip Morsels can be used.), divided


Caramel Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Grease 3 small 5-inch ramekins (5 inches across) with almond butter, and set on a cookie sheet. (Makes 3 cookie desserts).
  3. In a small bowl, make the caramel sauce by combine the Caramel Sauce ingredients, almond butter and maple syrup. Blend until mixed well and smooth.  Pour equally into the 3 greased ramekins. Smooth out the caramel. It is sticky. Do the best you can to smooth it out. Don’t worry if you can’t get it completely smoothed out.  It will melt evenly across the bottom once in the oven.
  4. Place 6 to 7 chocolate chips on top of the caramel mixture, set aside.

Cookie Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, sea salt, baking powder, date sugar, and cinnamon. Then add the applesauce, vanilla, almond butter, and plant milk to the dry ingredients. Stir together until just combined (no mixer is required).
  2. Then evenly distribute the cookie batter into the 3 ramekins, smooth out the cookie batter on top of the caramel/chocolate chip mixture.
  3. Evenly distribute approximately 7 to 8 chocolate chips on top of the cookie batter, push them down a little bit so they are secure in the cookie batter.
  4. Place in the oven and bake for 21 minutes or until the cookie is set.
  5. Remove from the oven and let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Enjoy warm!


*Preheated Oven:  Make sure the oven is fully preheated before placing the pazookie desserts into the oven.

*Cookie Sheet:  Placing the ramekins on a cookie sheet makes it easier to put them in the oven and remove.

*5-inch ramekin:  The 5-inch ramekin works perfectly for 3 deep dish cookies

*Eat while warm:  The caramel at the bottom tends to harden up a little when it cools, but this dessert is a warm and luscious treat if eaten warm. If it cools, warm up and serve. Super DELICIOUS!!!
