Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

This chocolate chip skillet cookie is just like a classic chocolate chip cookie but with less sugar and saturated fat and a boost of fiber from whole-wheat flour. It's soft in the center and crispy around the edges, with plenty of warm, melted chocolate throughout.

Nutrition Profile:


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup whole-wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar

  • cup granulated sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ½ cup canola or vegetable oil

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, divided

  • Coarse sea salt, such as Maldon, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with cooking spray.

  2. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.

  3. Place brown sugar, granulated sugar, butter and oil in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and beat until combined, about 10 seconds. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until combined after each addition, about 20 seconds, stopping to scrape down sides as needed.

  4. Add half of the flour mixture to the sugar mixture and fold in with a spatula just until combined. Add the remaining flour mixture and 3/4 cup chocolate chips; fold until combined.

  5. Press the dough evenly into the prepared pan. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup chocolate chips. Bake until the top and edges are golden and the center is just cooked through, about 35 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Garnish with coarse sea salt, if desired. Slice and serve warm.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
