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.
Why certified gluten free oats are important:
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?
How to make a gluten free pizookie:
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 this recipe for?
Because you are baking this cookie dough as a giant cookie, you will need to bake this cookie longer than small cookies. Pour the cookie dough into a greased cast-iron skillet. I like to use coconut oil to grease the skillet. Spread the batter out and bake the skillet cookie for 18-20 minutes at 350F degrees.
If you don’t have a cookie sheet, this recipe is for you!
Can you make this cookie recipe as drop style cookies?
You can easily make this cookie recipe drop style. To do this, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a cookie scoop to drop balls of cookie dough onto the parchment paper. Bake the cookies for 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and slide the parchment paper of cookies to a cooling rack.
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 :-).”
Can you make this cookie recipe dairy-free?
You can make this cookie recipe dairy-free by using a vegan stick butter in place of the regular butter.
