This healthy peanut butter cookie skillet is a lighter take on the classic peanut butter pizookie! Undetectably dairy free, vegan, and gluten free, you won’t stop at one spoonful!



  • 1 1/2 cups 1-to-1 gluten free baking flour
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil, softened to room temperature but still cold
  • 1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 375F and grease a cast iron skillet or baking dish with coconut oil or olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, combine the coconut sugar, applesauce, softened vegan butter or coconut oil, vanilla extract, and peanut butter using a hand mixer.
  4. Fold in wet ingredients into dry to create a thick dough.
  5. Fold in chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the peanut butter cookie dough, then pour the dough into the skillet.
  6. Spread it evenly around the edges and place the skillet in the oven to bake for 22-24 minutes, or until the toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let cool before slicing and serving with ice cream!
