  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Grease the sides with cooking spray or extra vegan butter.
  • Place vegan butter, organic cane sugar, and coconut sugar in a medium bowl.
  • Cream the butter and sugars together with an electric mixer. Add the almond milk, vanilla extract, and almond extract and beat again until combined.
  • Add the cassava flour, tapioca starch, baking soda, and salt and mix again until a dough is formed. You may need to stop and squeeze the dough together with your hands to form a smooth, cohesive dough. Fold in the chocolate chips.
    *Reserve a small amount of chocolate chips to press into the top of the dough once in the pan.
  • Transfer cookie cake dough to the prepared pan and spread into an even layer. Press reserved chocolate chips into top of dough, if desired.
  • Bake for 23-26 minutes until top is golden and a tester comes out clean.
  • Allow the gluten-free cookie cake to cool completely before slicing and serving. The cake must cool entirely to prevent cracking or breaking before removing the springform pan sides. Decorate with frosting if desired. Slice with a sharp knife.
