This vegan skillet chocolate chip cookie is the perfect dessert for any night of the week. It can be made in a single bowl and put together in about 30 minutes. Although it is free from eggs and dairy, it is still loaded with so much flavor and will satisfy any sweet tooth!
I have always wanted to make a homemade classic skillet cookie inspired by pizookies available at BJ’s Restaurant, so today, I am making it happen with an adaptation of our classic chocolate chip cookie recipe.
This skillet chocolate chip cookie is crispy on the edges but soft and chewy on the inside and pairs perfectly with a scoop of vegan ice cream. It tastes just like I remember growing up, and I can’t wait for you to try it.
Here’s What We Need to Make Our Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie:
Preheat the oven to 350°F and position a rack in the middle.
Add the butter to the cast iron skillet and set it over medium-low heat until melted.
In the meantime, add the flaxseed meal and water to a medium bowl and mix until uniform.
Once the butter has melted, add it to the bowl with the flax egg. Use a pastry brush to spread any excess butter in the cast iron pan to grease it before baking. Set aside.
Add the sugars, vanilla, baking powder, soda, and salt to the bowl and stir to combine.
Add in the flour and mix until a smooth cookie dough forms.
Lastly, stir in all but 1 tablespoon of the chocolate chips until uniform.
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.
Place into the oven to bake for 27 to 30 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and the center is set.
Remove it from the oven and allow it to cool slightly. Top it with vegan ice cream if desired, grab some spoons and dig in!
If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, you can use any oven-safe skillet, or a 6 to 8-inch cake pan or 8×4-inch loaf pan. The cooking time may vary, so keep an eye on it starting at around 20-25 minutes and bake until the edges are golden and the center sets.
