First of all, I would like to state that I just found out the difference between a skillet and a frying pan, To me is the same thing but hey they is a difference and for now the only difference I see is that the skillet has a lid.
So I was craving cookies and sweet things as usual nothing has changed. If you are reading this and you follow me on Instagram you know the struggle, as usual, I try to make my recipes as healthy as possible so that I enjoy my food without any guilt although you always have to remember too much of anything is not good for you, whether it’s healthy or not.
After I made the batter, I realized I didn’t have a baking tray, I know right, Its crazy, so I decided to use the frying pan since I had seen so many cookie skillet recipes on the interwebs. The cookie turned out great I wouldn’t have it any other way. I initially wanted crunchy cookies which is not what I got but I was happy anyway will get onto the crunchy ones next time.
As usual, you know I am all about the easy recipes and this is another one of those.
HEALTHY FRYING PAN CHOCOLATE COOKIE
- 2 sachets of quaker oats
- 1 banana
- 1 teaspoon of cacao powder
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 Egg
- 125 ml of almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of chunky peanut butter
- 1/4 cup of cacao nibs
- 80% cacao chocolate (4 blocks)
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 scoop of vanilla yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- While the oven is preheating, add the oats to a blender and pulse, after pulsing the oats, add everything else apart from the chocolate blocks.
- Pulse the ingredients to make the batter.
- Melt 1 tablespoon of coconut oil on a skillet, then add the batter to then and finally add some chopped chocolate chunks on top and bake for 20-30 minutes depending on how you much you want the cookie to cook. ( A little dark or just enough). What I normally do is take off the oven after 20 minutes and leave the pan in for 10 more minutes.
- After 30 minutes, take it out and let it cool for about 10 minutes, then add one scoop of yogurt.
- Enjoy as is or slice it up and have a slice.
