The most epic Vegan Peppermint Chocolate Skillet Cookie with a gooey center and crisp edges, just like the classic! This festive treat is guaranteed to conquer all your chocolate cravings.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter (I used Earth Balance), room temperature/softened
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar (can sub brown sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp peppermint extract
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (can sub unbleached all purpose flour )
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Crushed candy canes, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9-inch cast iron skillet. If you don't have a skillet, use a round pie pan.
  2. Whisk together flax and water in a small bowl. Set aside to thicken.
  3. In a large mixing bowl with a hand held mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment), cream the butter and both sugars until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla extract, peppermint extract, and flax mixture and mix until combined.
  4. Add flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat until a dough forms. Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
  5. Spread mixture into prepared skillet. Bake for 18-20 minute,  or until center is set. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes and garnish with crushed candy canes!
