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?

Best of all, this one pan meal is ready to eat in under 30 minutes!

Banana Nut Collagen Protein Muffins (Gluten Free)

April 03, 2024

Muffins are always a good idea for breakfast – especially if they’re these Banana Collagen Protein Muffins! These muffins are low sugar, high-protein, and taste like banana heaven. I had to eat as many as I could before the hubby got them all (he was pretty mad about it too). You can make these muffins low fat using unsweetened applesauce, or use buttery spread and walnuts like I did for a more decadent version.
