Whether you call it a pizookie or a cookie in a skillet, I promise you will fall in love with this gluten free chocolate chip oatmeal skillet cookie!
Over the last twenty years, this has been the most requested recipe I have. EVERY time I make it someone asks for the recipe. Every. Single. Time.
And why wouldn't you want it??!!! You can bake and eat this cookie in under 30 minutes. It's incredibly easy to make and requires one bowl and no refrigeration time.
Plus, this chocolate chip oatmeal skillet cookie really is delicious! The oats provide a nice chewy texture while the pecans provide a little crunch. And then there's the chocolate chips... 🙂
Can the chocolate chip and oatmeal cookie recipe be doubled?
You can easily double the recipe to feed a larger crowd. Bake the cookie in a 9 x 13 glass or metal pan lightly coated in cooking spray. Same cooking time, just double the ingredients.
Ingredients and Equipment
- Gluten Free Flour Blend
- Gluten Free Rolled Oats
Please make sure your rolled oats are gluten free! Oats are heavily cross-contaminated, not only in growing but in the manufacturing. Buying gluten free oats ensures the field they were grown in is not alternated with wheat crops and used on the same processing equipment as wheat. Kind of a big deal for us Celiacs!
Now...we're not talking about using instant oats. We're talking about rolled oats which are thicker and more round. Rolled oats are a step removed from instant oats, and in my opinion, much better to use in baking!
Depending on availability, I will usually purchase these oats from GF Harvest. Depending on cost, I have also purchased Bob's Red Mill, although they seem to be difficult to come by these days.
- Cast Iron Skillet
Lodge is a great brand of cast iron skillet and one that I have used for many years (not paid or endorsed, I just like them)! I use the more shallow skillet for this cookie, which can also be used as a lid for the larger pan. If you don't own a cast iron pan and do not intend to purchase one, substitute an 8x8 metal or glass pan and lightly coat with cooking spray.
Dairy free and egg free options:
Since I have made this recipe oh so many times, I have made it dairy and egg free to accommodate allergies with pretty good success.
Two options for dairy free I have used: substituting butter with something like Earth Balance dairy free butter and using dairy free chocolate chips (I always buy Kirkland Signature chocolate chips from Costco because they are dairy free). I have also used coconut oil in place of the butter.
Two options for egg free I have used: a flax egg (combine 1 Tbs flax seed with 3 Tbs warm water, allow to sit for 5 minutes to absorb), or Egg Replacer (use as directed).
