What Is A Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie?

A Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie, often known as a “Pizookie” (a blend of “pizza” and “cookie”) that’s exactly what it sounds like – a giant cookie baked in a skillet. Imagine the warm, gooey goodness of a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie, but bigger.

Typically, the cookie dough is made much like any classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, with ingredients like flour (almond flour in the keto version), butter, sugar (or sugar substitute for keto), eggs, and, of course, chocolate chips. The dough is then spread out in an oven-safe skillet, usually cast iron, and baked until the edges are wonderfully crispy and golden, while the center remains delightfully soft and gooey.

Why Are You Going To Love This Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Recipe

Ingredients For Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

What’s not to love about a recipe that’s made using easy-to-find ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, and it’s also extremely delicious and easy to make? Here are the ingredients that you will need:

Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie Ingredients
  • Eggs – use room-temperature eggs to avoid any eggy flavor. They act like a binder and add moisture to the cookie dough.
  • Butter – gives a rich buttery flavor to the chocolate chip skillet cookie.
  • Vanilla Extract – use the best quality vanilla extract for an intense flavor.
  • Sweetener – use your favorite powdered sweetener to mix well into the batter. Replace with Swerve brown for a rich flavor.
  • Almond Flour – is one of the best low-carb flour substitutes to create sweet treats. I prefer a superfine, blanched almond flour for the best texture.
  • Baking Powder – acts like a leavening agent to help the cookie rise and provide a tender texture.
  • Salt – used to enhance all the flavors.
  • Chocolate Chips – you will need unsweetened dark chocolate chips or use dark chocolate chips instead. Choose a chocolate with at least 70% cocoa content to keep the sugar content low.

These variations make a Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie even more nutritious and flavorful.

How To Make Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

This sugar-free chocolate chip skillet cookie recipe is one of the easiest and most delicious dessert recipes I have ever tried. Here are the instructions that you have to follow:

Preheat The Oven

First things first, let’s get that oven fired up to 350F/180C. And here’s a little tip: greasing your skillet with butter is key to avoiding any sticky situations later on. I love using a cast-iron skillet for that perfect cookie crust, but any oven-proof skillet will do.

Making The Cookie Dough

Mix The Wet Ingredients.

Grab your large mixing bowl because it’s time to get mixing! Start with melted butter, eggs, and a splash of vanilla extract. Whip them up for about 3 minutes until you’ve got a frothy, well-combined mixture. It’s this frothiness that gives our cookie that lovely, light texture – yum!

Add The Dry Ingredients. Now, gently fold in the almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Mixing this until just combined is the secret to keeping our cookie dough light and fluffy – no overmixing!

Fold In The Chocolate Chips. And now for the best part – chocolate chips! Gently fold them into the batter with a silicone spatula. This is where you can get creative – try different types of keto-friendly chocolate chips, or even mix in some nuts for an extra crunch.

Baking The Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Press the cookie batter into a cast iron skillet in an even layer. You want those crispy edges but a gooey center. Pop it in your preheated oven and bake for about 25 minutes. Keep an eye on it – you want those edges just crunchy enough, with the center still a bit soft and gooey.

Here’s a pro tip: take it out when it’s slightly underbaked. This cookie keeps cooking in that hot skillet even after you take it out of the oven.

And there you have it! A Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie that’s sure to be a hit. Whether you’re hosting a party or just need a sweet treat, this recipe is a winner.

Tips For Making Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

  • You can replace the butter with the same amount of coconut oil. Plus, it’s a great dairy-free option for those who need it!
  • Make sure that you are using a non-stick skillet to prevent sticking. t. If you’re using cast iron, make sure it’s well-seasoned. This not only prevents sticking but also adds a lovely, subtle flavor to the cookie.
  • Give your cookie some time to cool down before you slice into it. I know, I know – waiting is hard, especially when it smells so heavenly. But letting it cool for a few minutes helps the cookie set and makes slicing a breeze. You’ll get those perfect, Instagram-worthy slices this way!
  • Keep a close eye on your cookie as it bakes. Taking it out just when the edges get slightly crispy, but the center is still a bit soft, is key. Overbaking is the nemesis of skillet cookies – it’ll turn your gooey, soft delight into a dry, crumbly disappointment. Remember, the cookie continues to cook in the hot skillet even after you take it out of the oven.
  • Don’t skip sifting your dry ingredients. This might seem like an extra step, but it makes a world of difference. Sifting helps mix the almond flour, sweetener, and baking powder evenly, creating a perfectly smooth batter texture. It’s these little things that take your baking from good to great.

Recipe Variations

  • Nuts: You can add some chopped nuts like pecans, almonds, or macadamia nuts for a crunchy texture.
  • Spices: Add some spices like cinnamon or nutmeg for extra flavor. Plus, they make your kitchen smell amazing while the cookie bakes!
  • Dried Fruits: Replace the chocolate chips with dried fruits like cranberries.
  • Add a spoonful of homemade keto caramel or peanut butter filling in the center before baking the cookie.
  • Pumpkin puree: Adding pumpkin puree to the cookie dough can give it a moist and cake-like texture while also adding fiber and nutrients. Use 1/4 to 1/2 cups of pumpkin puree in the recipe, and adjust the amount of almond flour accordingly. It’s perfect for fall or whenever you’re in the mood for something a bit different.
