Are you craving a skillet cookie from your favorite local restaurant but can’t afford the calories? This Oatmeal Skillet Protein Cookie should help you out! Our recipe is packed with diet friendly macros, tastes just as good as the “real” thing, and only takes a few minutes to prep.

For this healthy skillet cookie you’re going to need a large mixing bowl and a large cast iron skillet. Here’s a link to the skillet I’m using in this recipe.

Add right into your bowl 2 cups of rolled oats, 2 large whole eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of honey, 2 tablespoons of a sugar free chocolate syrup, 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 tablespoon of melted coconut oil, 1/2 cup of unsweetened milk substitute, and 2 1/2 scoops of a vanilla protein powder.

You can quickly melt your coconut oil by putting it into the microwave for around :30-:40 seconds depending on how powerful your microwave is.

Mix all of those ingredients together until everything is well incorporated.

Continue by adding and mixing in 12 tablespoons of coconut flour.

Pour your oatmeal skillet protein cookie mix into your cast iron skillet and press it in to evenly distribute it across your pan. If you’re using a large skillet you should have just enough to cover the entire pan.

Did you know the coconut flour is a great source of fiber with 5 grams for every 60 calories?

Top your cookie with 3 tablespoon of sugar free caramel dip, 1 tablespoon of sugar free chocolate chips, and 2 tablespoons of marshmallow bits.

Don’t like those toppings? Use whatever toppings you want and let us know what your favorite creations end up being in the comments below! Some of my favorites?


  • Crushed up nuts
  • Chopped up fruit
  • Sprinkles
  • Other chocolate or peanut butter chips

Put your skillet cookie into the oven on 350F/176C for around 20-25 minutes or until it starts to turn a golden brown color. This could take more or less time depending on the size skillet you used.

Remove your oatmeal skillet protein cookie from the oven and optionally top it! Greek yogurt, nut butter, whipped cream, and so on all make great topping options.

You could also add even more protein to this recipe by topping this cookie with one of our Protein Frosting Recipes!

Bored with this recipe? Change it up by using chocolate protein powder for more of a chocolate tasting cookie.
