I have been experimenting with baking in my cast iron skillet lately. I love how easy it is to bake with this skillet. It retains heat beautifully, making your baking turn out even. I had a cast-iron skillet for a long time that sat neglected under my stove for years.
I finally learned how to clean my skillet properly so I could make better use of it :-).

Gluten Free Skillet Cookie Ingredients
This gluten free skillet cookie is so easy to make. All you need are a few simple ingredients like certified gluten free oats, brown sugar, butter, gluten free flour, chocolate chips or raisins, an egg, vanilla, and cinnamon.
Can you use this oatmeal cookie batter to make regular sized cookies? Of course!! You can also make regular sized cookies out of this cookie dough if you don’t have a cast-iron skillet.
Certified Gluten Free Oats
I can’t stress enough how important it is to use certified gluten free oats. Regular oats are very easily cross-contaminated with gluten every step of the way from growing in the fields, to harvesting equipment, to silo storage. There are many brands of certified gluten free oats, even Trader Joe’s has them!
Are you ready to make this gluten free pizookie recipe for yourself?
The first step to making a gluten free oatmeal skillet cookie is to add all dry ingredients to a bowl. Use a whisk to blend thoroughly. In a separate bowl, add all of the wet ingredients and whisk to blend.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well.
How long do you bake a pizookie for?
Pour the cookie dough into a greased cast-iron skillet. Spread it out and bake the skillet cookie for 18-20 minutes at 350F degrees.
Slice the gluten free pizookie and enjoy warm :-). You can see the inside and how moist this giant gluten free skillet cookie is.
Top with ice cream and the bourbon butternut sauce or enjoy it as is :-).”
