Just imagine it …. warm cookie, slightly melty vanilla ice cream on top … mmmmmm *wipes drool from chin*

Now, let’s be realistic – this IS a cookie. And cookies should be considered as treats. But, when said cookie is made with better, healthier ingredients, that makes it a healthy treat – right? 😉

If that’s true, you are so in luck because this one definitely takes the cake! I mean cookie. 😀  Hell, it takes both!

If you’ve wanted to make a skillet cookie but just haven’t yet, this one’s for you. Perfect for Fall with the addition of pumpkin, this cookie would easily be welcomed at your holiday table. Just make sure you pass out enough spoons. 🙂

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease 10-inch cast iron skillet with coconut oil, ghee, or butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice.
  3. Melt coconut oil in small bowl. Cool slightly. Stir in pumpkin, coconut sugar, and maple syrup until blended. Add eggs and vanilla extract, stirring to fully incorporate.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring until just blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread into skillet.
  5. Bake 20 to 30 minutes or until the edges are brown and the center is firm, but not completely set. Cookie will continue to cook in the cast iron once it's removed from the oven.
  6. Let cool until it's set - maybe 30 to 60 minutes. Cut and serve!
  7. If you are serving for family or friends and want to make a beautiful presentation, serve right from the skillet! Just top with ice cream right and pass around the spoons! Oooh, fancy!
Recipe Notes

Don't have white whole wheat flour? Any type of all-purpose will do.

Butter or ghee can be used instead of the coconut oil.

Don't have coconut sugar?  Brown sugar will work!

You can use honey in place of the maple syrup if you wish.

If you're lucky, you'll have a round skillet but my square one worked just fine!

This cookie is moist so leftovers, if you have any, are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 5 days. Don't want to eat a cold slice? (personally, I thought they were amazing when they were cold!) Pop it in the microwave for 15-30 seconds (your preference) and voila! Warm cookie!

    Ok so I keep saying I’m going to get a skillet…but I haven’t. I’m not a chef ha! But I’d love to make this, will a regular pan do?

      Yes! You can totally do this in a square baking pan. You’ll have to adjust cooking time because most baking pans are 9×9 square or 9″ round and this skillet is 10″. I would add 5-15 more minutes, depending on your oven, and check it after the first 5 and get a feel for how much longer. And then, get a skillet! You don’t need to be a chef to have one. I use mine for everything – bacon, eggs, salmon, steak, taco meat, chicken, cookies, etc! 🙂

    I <3 skillet cookies. OMG, so good! And I love that you worked some pumpkin in there. I think I'd have to scale it down to just a single serving though . . . cookies have a tendency to call my name.

      Cookies have a tendency to call my name too! lol That one certainly did! I’m hoping to get some mini-cast iron skillets for Christmas so I can make individual serving sizes! How cute would that be?! <3

      Thank you! I’m glad my daughters and grandbabies live here so I didn’t have to eat the whole thing by myself. 😂
