How is this skillet cookie gluten free and vegan?

Do you have about 8 minutes? Cool, you have enough time to make this warm and gooey treat!

You will need:

Chocolate chip skillet cookie gluten free.

Gluten free all purpose baking flour (I used Outrageous Baking blend–it’s a personal fav) or regular all purpose baking flour if not gluten free.

Vegan butter–I’ve found most brands work but I prefer the stick form of Earth Balance or Miyoko’s brands.

Ground flax meal is my preferred method of replacing eggs in baked goods because I buy a giant bag from Costco and it lasts me like a year!

Brown sugar and cane sugar–I used organic versions of both but it’s not necessary.

Vanilla extract, baking soda, baking powder, salt and vegan chocolate chips–that’s it!

Of course you can mix in some add ins like walnuts, nut butter or pretzels.

  • 1/2 tbsp ground flax meal
  • 1 1/2 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter soft
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 1/2 tbsp cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup gluten free all purpose baking flour I used Outrageous Baking
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 cup vegan chocolate chips more for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F and prepare a 5-inch oven safe skillet with non-stick spray and then set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flax meal and water and then set it aside to gel. In a mixing bowl, use a handheld mixer to beat the butter, brown sugar and cane sugar together until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add in the flax mixture and vanilla extract and continue mixing until well combined.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the wet ingredients and then add in the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips and then press the cookie dough into the bottom of the prepared skillet. Sprinkle with more chocolate chips if desired and bake the skillet cookie for 18-22 minutes and golden brown.
  • Remove the skillet cookie from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving warm with vegan ice cream if desired.


For a gooey cookie (I like mine slightly undercooked) remove the cookie after about 18 minutes in the oven, for a more thoroughly cooked cookie, remove after 22 minutes.
