Low Carb Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie (Nut Free)

This Amazing Low Carb Skillet Cookie is keto, gluten free, sugar-free, nut free and in just one decadent bite you feel like your cheating on your sugar-free diet, but you’re not!

What is a Skillet Cookie?

It’s A GIANT COOKIE made in a skillet! A cookie lovers dream! No need to scoop a bunch of little cookies when you just make the entire recipe and dump into a skillet. Easy peasy! You don’t even need to slice it, everyone can just grab a spoon and dig in! Even better is when said Skillet Cookie is gluten free, nut free, sugar free, low carb and Keto, well, that my friends is a low carb/sugar free lovers dream!

Did you ever have this great intention to make something so decadent and delicious, but then it falls through and you’re left starting over? Sometimes that happens, but sometimes, it turns out better than that first intention. Such is the case with this recipe I’m sharing today.

As a busy mom, I’m always looking for simple desserts, ones that take little effort in the kitchen but everyone loves and thinks you spent hours. My orginial plan with this recipe was for the slow cooker. And in fact you could probably still make this in the slow cooker, but it doesn’t come out looking like this pie, more like bars instead.

The cast iron skillet really creates that outer cookie crispness and perfect gooey center. After making this recipe twice in the slow cooker and doing some tweaks with the amounts of flour, I opted to try it a third time in the cast iron skillet and I am so happy I did. Masterpiece right here!

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

Perfect outer edges like a cookie would typically have and the center is all soft and gooey like. I mean this is truly perfection! My entire picky family and even the hubby loved this so much! Even after a few days on the counter the hubby tried a piece and didn’t even warm it up, (what a shame in my opinion!), but still loved every bite.

Bake for 35- 40 minutes or until a toothpick in center comes out clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20-30minutes before serving.

Recipe Notes

Brenda's Notes:

You can sub another sweetener for the Sukrin Gold, but in my opinion the Sukrin is the BEST naturally made brown sugar sub I've found.

If you don't have vanilla stevia you can skip it or swap it by adding another 1/2 cup of sweetener of choice.

I've made this twice using sesame seeds instead of the sesame flour and I must say the flour is better. The seeds while you can grind them in a blender, don't provide a smooth texture as using the flour. You can easily swap the sesame flour with almond in this recipe.

This recipe was originally posted in November 2017 and updated with video in 2018.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2018: I recalculated the nutrition because I found that Sukrin has a fantastic sesame flour which contains 15 grams fo fiber and only 6 carbs per 100 grams, making that one the best choice for using sesame flour over other brands.

If you’re using to calculate the nutrition info, it does not take into account the sugar alcohols in the Sukrin or Swerve. Nor does it take into account the fiber content of the product.

Can I just say THANK YOU so much?!?!?! I am just starting to adapt to an LCHF lifestyle (I aspire to keto but I’m not there yet) but I am allergic to peanuts and most tree nuts, so most keto-baking recipes I see won’t work for me. I’ve never heard of sesame flour! As far as I know, I’m not allergic to sesame seeds (I’ve had Burger King buns for years with no problem), so I’m going to try this!

Would you say that sesame flour, in general, can work as a 1 for 1 replacement for almond flour in recipes? What I’m most urgently trying to do is come up with a replacement for the homemade Scottish Shortbread cookies I make every year for Christmas (just all purpose flour, rice flour, Kerrygold, and sugar). I was going to try just replacing the sugar with Swerve this year, but I’m thinking maybe I’ll be brave and do a batch with sesame flour…do you think that might work?

This is a 5 star recipe!!! And there are not enough words to thank you ????. I’ve been eating Low Carb for 3+ years…in search of a decent chocolate chip cookie to have, grain free and sugar free. Then I saw this recipe and decided to try it. Used Almond flour and Monk Fruit sweetener that my sister sends me from Japan and I’ve found works great in baked goodies. Didn’t have the vanilla stevia, so left it out. Added walnuts, cause I love nuts in my cookies. Made it twice and it was beyond wonderful!! Hot, warm, cold ?????? mmmm chocolate chip cookie!!! Then I got to thinking…why not this recipe for …..cookies!!?! So today I made a batch and they turned out better than perfect! 36 wonderfully scrumptious chocolate chip cookies!! You have made my heart smile so big!!! THANK YOU!! ??????????

I followed this recipe exactly, even used a scale to measure ingredients. My cookie came out soggy and not firm at all. I even cooked it longer with no luck. Still soggy after cooking 50 mins. Is it supposed to firm up at all? If so, how do I get it to stiffen up? Thank you!!

Can I substitute the THM baking blend? If so, how much? Even a mix of the two. Trying to cut down on all my almond flour use. It’s so calorie dense. Thank you! ??O?

I’m not sure how to get my answer from you?

Hi Brenda,

I want to try this recipe but I’m trying to figure out how you calculated the net carbs. The sesame flour brand you linked has 10g carbs (no fiber) per 28 gram serving, so if you used 216 grams of sesame flour in the recipe, that’s 77g carbs total in the recipe, divided by 12 servings is over 6g carbs per serving just from the sesame alone–and another gram or two per serving from the cream cheese/sour cream/heavy cream and chocolate chips–but you list 4 net per serving–help, what am I not understanding??? Thanks!!

The plug in I use is WP Recipe Maker Premium which calculates the nutrition info and seems accurate, at least with most of my recipes. I will double check it and see if I made a mistake in inputting the correct amounts of each item.

So I entered what you have in the nutritional info today into WW (weight watchers) app. (It came up 10 pats gfor 1/12th of pie.) Is this nutritional value using the seasone flour or the almond flour? Thanks!

You can find vegan cream cheese at Whole Foods. For the heavy cream and sour cream try subbing canned coconut milk, the creamy part on the top. For butter, if you can do Ghee that has very little milk solids in it.

Brenda – I follow you on Instagram and have been a fan of your recipes since I started my low carb into keto journey. I can’t say I eat a lot of sweets but when I need one yours is my go to site. I was looking for a treat this morning and this cookie showed up on Instagram! Whoop !

I was just reading all the questions and and answers and can I just say – YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE OF A SAINT ??

Have a great day ??


Can’t wait to make this tonight!!!! This looks absolutely divine! And I agree with the above comment, you truly are a saint. I shake my head with some of the questions and comments. I’m just truly grateful for the time you put into your recipes and for sharing them with us, I appreciate it so very much!!!! Thank you!

Reading the comments above, my hats off to you with some of these questions and comments…people need a little more common sense, read the recipe in detail and if your still not sure then dont make the recipe, I cant get over these questions. Brenda I think your recipes are awesome, I follow you on instagram and here on your blog… I am always looking for new ideas with this woe… thank you.

Brenda! So excited! I read through all the comments so I could see how to make this Dairy Free… I saw that we can sub the two items for top part of canned coconut milk- yay! I’m new to this lifestyle- how much/many cans would I sub for the dairy items? Thank you!!

I make this pretty often, but it never seems sweet enough, but is fine with ice cream and whipped cream, also the link for the chocolate sauce only goes to the amazon page for the chocolate bar not the recipe.

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options

Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.

Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.

In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.

Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.

1. Subway

Sandwich with cheese and vegetables

One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.

Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.

Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.

A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.

Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell

Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.

According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.

One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.

Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.

3. Chipotle

Vegetable burritos

Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.

Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.

Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.

For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.

4. McDonald's

McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.

Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.

5. Burger King

Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.

It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.

BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.

6. Wendy

Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate

Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.

Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.

The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.

Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
