I’ve been tinkering with my vegan chocolate chip skillet cookie recipe for some time now, giving it a few tries before deciding that it was never going to work (dramatic much?) and letting it take a backseat to my other recipe testing for a while (although these stuffed beauties are some of my favorite cookies at the moment).

While my girl Sarah has nailed the regular vegan chocolate chip cookie, I wanted to still go for my own version of a vegan deep dish chocolate chip cookie (deep dish is just always better!). Achieving a pretty near perfect vegan deep dish chocolate chip cookie is just about as close as I’ve gotten to getting my cookie recipe just right, so I have hope!

I did add a bit more liquid to this version and didn’t let it chill, since it’s filling up a whole skillet rather than being scooped into individual cookies. I would not recommend replacing the olive oil with coconut oil, as I didn’t test it with coconut oil and am not sure how it would work out, so stick to the recipe on this one!

If you’re looking for the perfect vegan chocolate chip skillet cookie to serve to a crowd or serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, this is it! Since I sometimes don’t feel like going through the process of scooping out cookies and baking them each on a tray, a vegan deep dish chocolate chip skillet cookie is a perfect lazy shortcut to getting there.

How to Make a Skillet Cookie

I actually feel a little strange sharing this skillet cookie recipe because it’s so incredibly simple. Literally all you have to do is mix together the ingredients in a bowl and pop the cookie dough into a pan.

My one major piece of advice is to mix the dry ingredients and wet ingredients together separately, and then combine the two. Keeping the wet and dry ingredients separate prevents the baking soda and baking powder from reacting with the wet ingredients too soon, which in turn ensures that your deep dish skillet cookie fluffs up nicely in the oven.

Oh! And I would recommend underbaking this cookie since overbaking could dry it out very quickly. Also, don’t skimp on the chocolate chips, they are one of the keys to the perfect gooey factor of the cookie! Between the perfectly gooey center and those crunchy, crinkly edges, this is the perfect vegan chocolate chip cookie of my dreams.
