CHOCOLATE CHIP PROTEIN SKILLET COOKIE INGREDIENTS
- Protein powder – I used Pescience Vanilla. The flavor is so good and there is no protein powder taste, which is important for a protein cookie recipe. For this recipe, my other favorite Pescience flavors to use are Cake Pop and Snickerdoodle. For all Pescience products, you can use my affiliate code LaurenFitFoodie to save 10% off your purchase.
- All-purpose flour
- Coconut sugar
- Sugar-free vanilla Jell-O pudding mix – Adds extra, delicious flavor!
- Baking soda
- Unsweetened applesauce – Will help keep our cookie soft and moist!
- Butter – I used I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter Light spreadable butter to keep fat lower.
- Mini chocolate chips, so the chocolate spreads further!
SKILLETS, OTHER BAKEWARE, AND BAKING TIMES
I am using a 8-inch skillet for this recipe.
Don’t have a skillet? You can still make this with a cake pan or another piece of flat bakeware.
Baking time may vary if you use something other than a skillet. When I use a cake pan, it sometimes takes 20-25 minutes instead of the 10 minutes with the skillet.
If you use a deeper dish, cookie will take longer to bake.
To test, poke a toothpick into the center of your cookie. If it comes out mostly clean, your Skinny Chocolate Chip Protein Skillet Cookie is done! It will still cook some in the dish so I would recommend taking it out when it’s almost done. The longer you bake it, the more cake-like it will be.
All purpose flour – You can substitute with 1:1 gluten flour or almond flour in same amounts.
Coconut sugar – Substitute brown sugar or white sugar. I would recommend not using Splenda or another zero calorie sweetener as that will make the cookie more like cake.
Vanilla Jello pudding mix – You can omit if you need to. It just adds an extra bit of yum!
Unsweetened applesauce – You can use pumpkin instead! Note that it will change the color of the cookie, but it will still be delicious.
