NO butter in this insanely-soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip skillet cookie! The dough mixes up in one bowl and it all bakes up in one skillet for whenever you get that warm cookie craving!
Consider Friday skillet cookie-ed, you guys. It’s honestly the best thing you could ever do to a Friday.
Or any day. Take your pick or just pick ALL the days.
I pick the winning option and that option would be every.dang.day.
So go. Do your skillet cookie thing already.
Today’s skillet cookie madness is yet ANOTHER spin-off of the original coconut oil cookie master recipe. You probably wouldn’t even recognize it today because it’s so trashed-up.
Trashed-up = oatmeal + chocolate chips + skillet + larger pieces. Yaaaaaaaas…
The dough for this skillet cookie is basically JUST as easy as the original. One bowl, a handful of ingredients, but the only difference is NO chilling the dough is necessary! The whole thing just gets pressed into the skillet and trust me: that’s about as easy as cookie business gets around here.
Make sure you’re going for an UNDER-baked cookie as well. The edges of the skillet cookie will just be turning brown, but the middle will still be slightly soft when it’s done. <<< exactly what we want.
Don’t wait to dig into this cookie, you guys. We all know cookies are at their best fresh outta the oven, but this one ESPECIALLY is insanely good hot next to your latte.
No need to even cut it into wedges if you don’t wanna. Forks get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Seriously though. Friday.GOALS. ^^^

Wow! I really wish I had chocolate chips on hand, that’s all I need to make this delicious recipe 🙂 I love that it’s baked in a skillet!
Just when I thought coconut oil chocolate chip cookies couldn’t get any better…..
Love an oatmeal cookie and skillet cookies are so much fun to make!
This looks great! Does it have to be cast iron or would it work in an oven proof skillet too?
An oven-proof skillet would work fine, Kate!

Oh my, I wish I wasn’t on Whole30 right now so I could take a BIG old slice of this to my face right noowww!!! Looks so amazing.
Can I substitute all-purpose flour for the whole wheat flour?
Yes, that would work fine, Amy! You may need to use a little less flour though since whole wheat flour is more dense.
