How do you make a cookie skillet? 

I have all the answers you need to make the perfect Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet that is vegan friendly. This recipe is simple. Here’s what you need to do to nail it:

  1. Preheat your oven and lightly grease a large cast-iron skillet
  2. In a large bowl, make a vegan egg and let it sit for 5 minutes to get the right consistency 
  3. To the bowl, add brown sugar & maple syrup, and whisk it all up 
  4. Fold in the flours, baking powder, salt, and chocolate
  5. Transfer the dough to the skillet, and flatten it out using a greased spatula or spoon
  6. Bake for 25-35 minutes until brown (it’s okay if the inside is still gooey)
  7. Let it cool down and serve

How do you make a flax egg?

For those new to a plant-based diet, you may not know how to create a vegan egg substitute. My go-to is a flax egg. This is super easy to create and gives your recipe that egg consistency it needs. All you need is a flaxseed meal and water. The equivalent to one real egg is about 1 tbsp. of flax meal, combined with 2 1/2 tsp. of water. Stir these ingredients together and by letting it sit for about 5 minutes you’ll reach the perfect consistency. 

What I also love to use is Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer which you can just add water to create that egg-like consistency you want.

How should I serve my cookie skillet?

One of the most important things to remember here is how hot a cast-iron skillet gets. Let this baby cool down and you can serve this cookie right in the skillet. It makes for a nice display! However, you can also slide the cookie out of the skillet when cooked and display however you want. 

Cut this massive cookie like a pizza and serve with your favourite toppings. Here’s some inspo:

  • Vegan ice cream
  • Coco whip (see how to make coco whip here)
  • A drizzle of chocolate, caramel, or topping of your choice 
  • Sprinkle of icing sugar 
  • Your favourite fresh fruits

Thank you so much, Elle!


So good, so easy and such a hit with everyone. I used Bob’s egg replacer (GF version) and it came together well. The almond flour adds a nice textural element that most other recipes don’t have. If I had to be picky it’s a little too sweet so would just reduce the sugar a little bit would definitely make again and serve with vegan whipped cream and ice cream!

Delicious, easy to make, and addicting! I added more chocolate chips than the recommended amount and topped it off with chocolate chunks; it was a delight!

So glad you enjoyed this, Bri! thanks for the love!


So yummy! I didn’t have almond flour so I just use all purpose flour (about 1 2/3 cup). Topped with coconut whip ❤️
