Vegan Cookie Skillets for Two

February 16, 2015

Realistically, these could be cookie skillets for four. We each ate a whole one and it was SO delicious, but if you’re trying to be calorie conscious, it’d be best to split one with a buddy. Especially if you’re covering it in ice cream. It’s definitely healthier than the standard cookie skillet, but I can’t manage to actually call it healthy. Check those chocolate chunks, yo — too many chippies to be health food.

Now that I’ve bribed you with cookies, a question. Do I talk about myself enough? Too much? Not enough about cats? I’d ask if there’s too much about my cats, but I know that isn’t possible 😉 Last week when I dropped cupcakes off at my dad’s office, one of his coworkers ask for my blog URL on my way in. I chatted with my dad a bit, watched him inhale a cupcake (and fight off the urge to go for a second. Impressed!), and then headed out. As I was leaving, his coworker mentioned that she read through a couple posts and now she knows a lot about Josh, but nothing about me. My dad agreed, even saying he couldn’t find a picture of me anywhere.

Now, I promise a Kelly’s face heavy post coming up in a few weeks, so don’t worry about that one. But here’s a few more things about me, other than the fact that I can’t walk away from a cookie skillet and you’re lucky these lasted long enough for photos.

  1. Josh and I are not married. That’s the #1 thing people assume, and it’s definitely incorrect!
  2. I went to college on scholarship and got a degree in Biomedical Science. I now work in an environmental toxicology lab.
  3. I can lick my own elbow!
  4. Nerd Alert: I love all kinds of sci-fi/fantasy. Favorites include Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Star Trek, any so-bad-they’re-good movie on SyFy.

Vegan Cookie Skillets for Two
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 2 skillets

  • 4 tbsp buttery spread
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp flax meal
  • scant ⅔ c white whole wheat flour
  • dash salt (if you’re buttery spread isn’t salty, taste your dough if unsure)
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ – ½ c chocolate chips
  • Optional toppings: chocolate sauce, ice cream, toasted nuts or coconut

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spritz 2 mini cast iron skillets with nonstick spray.
  2. Stir together the butter, sugar, and agave until well mixed. Add the vanilla and flax meal and stir in.
  3. Add the flour, salt (if necessary), and baking soda. Stir until just combined.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir in.
  5. Split the dough in half and press into each of the skillets.
  6. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes, until the tops are lightly browned. The inside will still be a little gooey, don’t worry.
  7. Top with ice cream or whatever toppings you want.

If making vegan, opt for a vegan buttery spread and double check your chocolate chips for dairy.
I recommend starting with fewer chocolate chips and adding more if you want more. I’d be happy with ¼ c chocolate chips but Josh was thrilled with ½ c. I’d say restaurant versions are closer to ½ c.

    My future in-laws are all about buttery spread (lots of vegans and dairy intolerance) and they (and I) would LOVE these skillet cookies!!

    My only complaint is that there definitely isn’t enough talking about the cats on here 🙂 Just kidding! But I am always up for a cute cat photo, or ten! I think we would have made these into two servings as well! They look so good and I love that you made each one in a little cast iron skillet, so cute!

    You know, I think I totally always assumed you were married – bad on me!! I would totally require a whole cookie skillet to myself! Maybe two.

    Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl Feb 16, 2015

    These sound amazing, and I LOVE that they are vegan!

    And yes… I am guilty of having once assumed you and Josh were married. I was so mad at myself when I did that! 😉

      It’s a VERY common mistake. My mom has a friend who will ask if we’re married, I’ll say no, and then she’ll refer to him as my husband the rest of the night anyway lol. At least you’ve learned!

    Joanna @Makingmine Feb 16, 2015

    Holy yum! These look SO tasty! Where did you find your skillets? I need these in my life!

    And congrats on being able to lick your elbow – definitely comes in handy if you happen to get some cookie on it 😉

      I just bought mini-skillets at World Market. I’m the same way–I love cookies! Not crunchy though…ooey gooey ones. Can’t wait to try these! SO not sharing!

        Side note: I’ve never read or seen any of the Harry Potter books/movies. I’m waiting to read them with the girls. Have you ever watched the show Dead Like Me? I think you’d like it…it’s shown on SciFi a lot!

          Kelly Feb 16, 2015

          I have seen that! And I love it. Get excited for Harry Potter — they’re so good! I dont know how you’ve held out this long
