COLLAGEN COOKIE SKILLET FOR TWO

This Collagen Cookie Skillet for Two is the ultimate healthy Valentine's dessert! It's got chewy cookie edges, a gooey cookie center, and melty chocolate chips throughout. But that's not all - this giant cookie is also lower in sugar with added collagen protein, and gluten free and dairy free. Try it with protein ice cream for an extra protein boost!

Did you know? Your bones are made mostly of collagen! Research suggests that taking daily collagen supplements may help inhibit the bone loss. (source)

Choosing the best collagen

I choose marine collagen because it's higher in Type I collagen (the most important kind) and typically lower in contaminants than bovine collagen. My favorite brand is LIV Body Marine Collagen (I used the Flavorless for this recipe). Feel free to use my code "SARAHWILKINS" for free shipping on all LIV Body products!

This cookie skillet can also be made without the collagen - however, I do NOT recommend substituting whey or vegan protein since they behave much differently than collagen protein.

Flour recommendations

For this recipe, I used gluten free baking flour and coconut flour to achieve a cookie-like texture. You can substitute all purpose flour, brown rice flour, cake flour, cassava flour, or oat flour for the gluten free baking flour. To swap out the coconut flour, I would suggest twice as much baking flour (two tablespoons).

Sweetener recommendations

To sweeten this cookie skillet, I used this brown sugar alternative. I just love the hint of brown sugar flavor! You can use any sugar-free brown sugar alternative, such as Lakanto Golden, Sukrin Gold, Swerve Brown, or Truvia Sweet Complete Brown. You can also use regular brown sugar or coconut sugar if you’re not worried about the added sugar! Baking stevia, granulated erythritol, granulated monk fruit, or a granulated white sugar will also work, but won’t taste quite as rich. If using stevia extract or drops, please check the brand-specific conversion chart :)

Wet ingredients

Besides baking soda and salt, the only other ingredients are egg whites, vegan butter, and peanut butter.  You can also use cashew butter or tahini (sesame seed butter)! You can substitute the egg whites for one whole egg, and the vegan butter for regular unsalted butter or coconut butter.

Finally, I used dairy free chocolate chips and natural colored sprinkles, but both of these can be swapped for whatever add-ins you like.

Hi, I tried this but it didn’t come out right. The recipe mentions coconut flour, but when you read the ingriedents, no coconut flour is listed. Was this just a mistake?

These Mediterranean Turkey Stuffed Peppers are high on the flavor charts and very filling for the calories. These peppers will not only satisfy your tastebuds, but your hunger, too! I love the combination of seasoned ground turkey, lemon parsley quinoa, and goat cheese. It’s one of those things I can eat all week and not get sick of (perfect for meal prep). The kids gobbled these too, believe it or not! Make these vegan using spiced chickpeas and vegan mozzarella.
