This vegan chocolate chip skillet cookie requires just one bowl and about 30 minutes of your time. It’s loaded with flavor and will satisfy any sweet tooth!


  • 1/4 cup (56g) vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 cup (60g) organic granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (48g) packed organic brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (111g) all-purpose flour 
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons (72g) vegan chocolate chips
  • Vegan ice cream, for serving



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and position a rack in the middle.
  2. Add the butter to the cast iron skillet and set it over medium-low heat until melted. 
  3. In the meantime, add the flaxseed meal and water to a medium bowl and mix until uniform.
  4. Once the butter has melted, add it into the bowl with the flax egg. Use a pastry brush to spread any excess butter around in the cast iron pan to grease it up before baking. Set aside.
  5. Add the sugars, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the bowl and stir to combine.
  6. Add in the flour and mix until uniform.
  7. Lastly, stir in all but 1 tablespoon of the chocolate chips until uniform. 
  8. Transfer the dough into the cast iron skillet and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips on top and press them gently into the dough.
  9. Place into the oven to bake for 27 to 30 minutes, or until edges are golden and the center is set.
  10. Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before topping it with vegan ice cream. Enjoy!


  • If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can use any oven safe skillet that you have, or a 6 to 8-inch cake pan or 8×4-inch loaf pan. The cooking time may vary, so just be sure to keep an eye on it starting at around 20-25 minutes and bake until the edges are golden and and center is set.
