Looking like a hero
This Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie comes together super duper quickly. Pop this in the oven while you’re eating dinner so it will be ready and cooling after you clean up the dishes.
I have the tiniest oven known to man, but it’s a workhorse. I set my oven to 350* and 20 minutes for this Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie. The center is slightly gooey and we like it that way.
Keep your cookie in up to 5 minutes longer for a more solid bake.
I have gotten so many questions regarding this ingredient for the Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie that I thought I would address this up front.
Oat Fiber is an ingredient that you will not use too often in your Keto Kitchen, but I am starting to use it more and it has become a staple in my pantry.
First off, oat fiber is NOT oat flour. Big difference. Oat fiber is the hull of the oat that is then ground down into a fine powder. You can read the details by this oatmeal expert here.
Here’s the gist of what the oat expert, Joshua Bruck from simplyoatmeal.com says about Oat fiber…
“Oat fiber contains zero carbs, fat or protein. In addition to insoluble and soluble fiber, whole grain oats are also plentiful in carbohydrates, protein, vitamins and minerals.
Nobody wants to worry about getting enough fiber in his or her diet. For this reason, let’s discuss what oat fiber really is, where it comes from and how it can benefit you.
For anyone needing to enrich his or her body with extra fiber, then oat fiber may be the fix you are looking for. Each individual serving packs a hefty dosage of dietary fiber.
Oat fiber is virtually indigestible, and therefore it contains zero carbs and nutrients. The insoluble fiber helps reduce constipation, promotes a full feeling for long periods of time, and may help reduce overall LDL cholesterol.”
Subbing out the Oat Fiber
Here’s the deal….I make any recipe several times before I post on my website. The final recipe that gets to the website is usually what I think is the best version…including this Keto Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie.
I used the oat fiber in this recipe to add fiber and texture to the cookie. I’ve tried keto chocolate cookies so many ways. Some versions were very good, others were either too dry, too crumbly, too mealy or a little off.
The oat fiber made this recipe have a really nice soft texture, while still being able to pick up the slice of skillet cookie to eat with your hand.
So…to sub or not to sub the oat fiber?
I think most people ask this because it’s not a regular item and they want to make that cookie. Ha…I get it.
So here’s my suggestion on subbing out the oat fiber…
Keto and low carb baking is not exact. Also everyone has a different palette. For success in a Keto Kitchen you really have to play with it a little.

Cast Iron Skillet or not?
Another work horse in The Kellie Kitchen is my trusty set of cast iron skillets. For this recipe I use the 10″ skillet and bring it right to the table with a bunch of spoons.
The cast iron keeps this cookie dessert warm long after it has left the oven.
Don’t despair if you do not own a cast iron skillet. Any heavy oven proof 10″ skillet will do. I might suggest putting your regular skillet on a middle or upper middle rack for baking.
Cast iron is super heavy, so if you use a thinner oven proof skillet baking on a higher rack will help from browning on the bottom too quickly.
- Pre-heat oven to 350F and grease a 10 inch with cooking spray and set aside.
- Mix until dough forms. Next, fold in low carb chocolate chips with a rubber spatula until fully combined.
- Press dough evenly into your greased skillet and smooth the top with the back of the spatula.
- Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes. 20 minutes in my oven.
- Cut into 10 slices and serve with your favorite keto friendly ice cream.
