Classic chocolate chip cookie flavor in each bite!
- Protein powder – I used Pescience vanilla. The flavor is so good and there is zero protein powder taste when baked.My other favorite Pescience flavors to use in this recipe are Cake Pop and Snickerdoodle. People always ask my favorite flavors of PEScience and I would definitely say these three. I use these flavors most often in all my dessert recipes!

- Coconut flour – I recommend Viva Naturals Coconut Flour. Coconut flour has different absorbent properties than other flours and cannot be substituted equally. If you need a substitute, I would use 2 tbsp of almond, all-purpose, or gluten free flour for every 1 tbsp of coconut flour.
- Granulated stevia – You can use granulated Splenda, honey, syrup or normal white sugar. Brown sugar or coconut sugar would work well too!
- Baking soda
- Unsweetened applesauce
- Egg whites – Low in fat and high in protein.
- Vanilla extract
- Mini Chocolate Chips – Use your favorite! Dark, milk chocolate, semisweet…lots of great combinations! Love using mini because the chocolate spreads further! Enjoy Life is my go-to brand.
SKILLETS, OTHER BAKEWARE, AND BAKING TIMES
For this recipe, I used an 8-inch skillet.
Don’t have a skillet? Use a cake pan or another piece of flat bakeware.
Cooking time may vary if you use something other than a skillet. When I use a cake pan, it sometimes takes 20-25 minutes instead 10 minutes in the skillet.
If you use a deeper dish, the 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.
CHOCOLATE CHIP PROTEIN SKILLET COOKIE SUBSITUTIONS
Applesauce – Try mashed pumpkin or banana in equal amounts.
Coconut flour – If needed, substitute 2 tbsp of almond, all-purpose, or gluten free flour for every 1 tbsp of coconut flour.
Granulated stevia – Use Splenda, honey, white sugar, coconut sugar, or brown sugar.
Baking soda – You can always sub for baking powder. The skillet cookie will be cakier, but it will still be good!
