Scrolling through Instagram I recently discovered that there are just 3 pictures for the hashtag „veganskilletcookies“
Since I love cookies and I love chocolate and I love a lot of cookies I though why not making a skillet cookie!
There are many recipes that require eggs or normal milk, so I tried to use peanut butter as a substitute for the egg. Now if you don’t have peanut butter at home or you want to use another replacements, I got you covered!
I found a really helpful table on Fablunch’s Instagram page.
I always experiment with this substitutes and it is amazing how they work out and in every case taste better than the original recipe! (Also approved by Non-Vegans!)
So here is the recipe.
1 1/4 cup almond flour (or any other flour works as well)
1/2 cup fine oats
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup coconut oil
½ cup coconut sugar
3 tbsp peanut butter
1/2 cup almond milk*
1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
a pinch of fine sea salt
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
* this amount depends on the type of flour you are using, you want to add more when using a dry flour and maybe less when using another type. For consistency check my YouTube tutorial
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine oats, flour and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set aside
In another bowl mix coconut sugar, coconut oil, peanut butter, vanilla and salt until smooth.
Now combine the two mixes. After one minute add 1/4 of the milk and see how the mixture turns out. Depending on your flour you want to add the rest of the milk.
(For consistency check YouTube Video of recipe here)
Stir in chocolate chips until well combined.
Now press the dough into an iron skillet pan. Decorate with more chocolate drops, that it looks better for the picture afterwards. Put the pan in the oven (middle) and make sure the pan does not touch the oven from the inside.
Bake for approx. 25-30 minutes. Remove them from the oven when the cookie slowly begins to turn crispy and looks brownish.
Let cool a little and eat still a little bit warm!
Note 1: Flours like coocnut flour are very dry and therefore you will need more milk. Please adjust the amount until the consistency looks like the one in my YouTube video
Note 2: The cookie I made was pretty thick. If you are aiming for a thiner Cookie, aim for a larger pan. (I had no bigger iron pan available ;))
