My Double-Chocolate Oatmeal Skillet Cookie is the perfect combination of chocolate, oatmeal, M&M’s and a delicious skillet cookie in one! Who could ask for more?
My Double-Chocolate Oatmeal Skillet Cookie is one of those things you just have to try!
I’m willing to bet you will cut yourself a wedge, eat it, and before long you will find yourself going back for another piece.
There’s definitely something special about this skillet cookie that will have you coming back for more! One of the added perks of a skillet cookie is you have plenty of room to top it off any way you want to. As you can see, a big scoop of ice cream with a little drizzle of chocolate sauce, and a few more mini M&M’s is always good!
This skillet cookie is also very good served plain. It also travels very well! You could easily slice a few wedges for backpacks, a lunch for work, or take with you just about anywhere.
One thing I would like to stress is you can always change the amount of oatmeal in this recipe. So if you’re not a huge fan of oatmeal feel free to use less oatmeal and more flour.
Whether you bake this skillet cookie in two skillets or one, it’s sure to turn out great!
