This chocolate chip cookie skillet topped with Enlightened ice cream is a single serving, easy to whip up, it bakes in 10 minutes, and it’s delicious.

The skillet cookie oozes with chocolate chips and the creamy ice cream melts slightly when it is topped on the warm cookie. The only bad part about this macro-friendly dessert is that whoever is with you will want to steal a bite! Tell them to make their own.

How do you bake a cookie in a skillet?

You bake a cookie in a skillet very similarly to a cookie cake, spray the skillet with cookie spray, pour in the cookie dough, and bake.

How do you make a soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie?

The chewiness of a cookie is attributed to the leavening agents used, the melted butter, and the brown sugar also help make the cookie soft and chewy.

Do you have to add protein powder to this recipe?

If you do not have protein powder you can add 2 more tablespoons of pancake mix, the protein powder just makes this a macro friendly dessert and adds a little flavor.

Will baking with protein powder affect the end result of this skillet cookie?

No, it will not, there are only 2 tablespoons used in this recipe so it does not affect how the cookie is baked, it is still chewy and delicious.

How do you make a macro-friendly chocolate chip cookie?

I find the best way to make a macro friendly chocolate chip cookie is to use a little protein powder but not a ton, brown sugar, and light butter and mini chocolate chips are key!

How do you stop the ice cream from melting once you put it on top of the cookie?

If you do not want your Enlightened ice cream to melt right away allow the cookie to cool completely, although, the melty ice cream is all part of the experience in my opinion.

Should you melt the butter when making a chocolate chip cookie?

Melting butter makes for a chewier cookie, so in this case, i recommend it! If you do not melt the butter ahead of time it will melt during baking typically creating more air pockets and a cakier outcome.

Is this chocolate chip cookie skillet macro-friendly?

Yes, per one skillet cookie it is 209 calories, 7.9 grams of fat, 27.1 grams of carbs, and 20.4 grams of protein! You can search HNFit Chocolate Chip Cookie Skillet in My Fitness Pal for easy logging. These macros do not include the ice cream on top.

What are the best low-calorie ice creams?

My favorite low-calorie, macro-friendly ice cream is Enlightened ice cream. It is so creamy, and unlike other low-calorie ice creams, it actually has huge chunks of cookie dough and brownies in it! So yum.
