Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookies

Last week Thursday I read something that about brought tears to my eyes. The words jumped right off the page and cut straight to my heart of hearts, through all the bull crap and walls I had put up.

What did I read?

Well, it was this.

“I am a God who heals. I heal broken bodies, broken minds, broken lives, and broken relationships. You cannot live close to me without experiencing some degree of healing. However, it is also true that you have not because you ask not. Ask and you will receive.”

Many of you know our struggle to get pregnant with our second child. We’ve been trying for two years and I truly believe with everything in my heart that God has promised us a second child. But for whatever reason it hasn’t happened yet. I’ve gone through seasons of frustration with my body, with God, with other people who seem to get pregnant just by their husbands looking at them. Then I’ve gone through seasons of peace and contentment with waiting on Gods timing.

I feel like right now I’m in the later season but after reading this devotional on Thursday I realized, I’ve forgotten to ask. I’ve forgotten to ask for God to bless us with a second child. I think I had asked so much in the past that I became tired of asking and never receiving. So I just stopped.

How do I expect to receive if I never ask?

I mean think about it. I tell Cason to ask me if he wants something. Anything. Most of the time, if it is good for him, I will give it him. Why? Because I love him and want to give him good things that will make him happy. I love seeing the joy and excitement on his face.

So if we, in our humanness desire to give our children anything they ask for, how much more do you think God desires to bless his children? All we have to do is ask!

All that to say. I’m going to start asking again.

While we’re on the subject of asking. The other day Cason was asking me to make some chocolate chip cookies. Soo… of course I was going to make them! {chocolate is always good for you} But I wanted to change up the recipe a little bit!

I’ve eaten my fair share of pizookie’s {skillet cookies} at restaurants but I have never made one at home. Well, today I am changing that in the best way possible!

These Coconut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookies are only 213 calories per serving and boast of gooey sweet chocolatey flavor! These Skillet Cookies are filled with healthy oats, white whole wheat flour, unsweetened coconut, chocolate chips, and honey! It’s like Oatmeal Cookie meets Chocolate Chip Cookie and makes the most delicious baby EVER!

Do it!

Just do it!

You’ll love it. Do it!

Ok, I think you get the point! Do it! (sorry I had to)

Bon Appetite!

    I have this in the oven as I type. I am hoping it turns out really yummy. My husband was skeptical because his family makes the best homeade chocolate chip cookies. How could I ruin that. lol. I just had to try this skillet cookie. I’m hoping he will love this recipe as well as his own. Thanks and I will say a prayer for you and yours. God is able, He will provide. We may not agree with his timing and his Will but He does know best.

    1. I hope it delivered Carissa, seeing this recipe pop up again makes me want to make it again. YUMMY! You can’t beat a warm skillet cookie with melty ice cream!

      Thank you so much for the prayers!

    OH WOW! I want all of this! Going to make a GF version at home soon. Pinning!

  3. Hi there! While this looks delicious (and I’m eager to make it), I believe your nutrition facts are quite off. Unless I’m not seeing something, you may want to recalculate.

    1. Hey Nahhan, these facts do not include the ice cream or chocolate on top. In the ingredients list both of those are listed as optional. So the nutritional facts are calculated on the cookie alone. 🙂

      1. I’m sorry, I calculated it that way from the start (without the optionals), and still have a completely different number. Exactly how many servings is the recipe supposed to yield? I hate to be annoying…

        1. No problem Nahhan, it would yield 3 mini skillet cookies or 1 large skillet cookie, I have calculated it to be 1/3 of one mini cookie or 1/12 of a large cookie. Make sense. When I ran with these numbers in myfitnesspal.com the nutritional information listed is what came up.

    I’m so sorry, Krista! While I’ve never been in your situation before, I do know how frustrating it can be when prayers go unanswered. You are so strong, and I hope your prayers are answered soon! By the way, you have an adorable kitchen assistant! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Michelle, I appreciate it! Part of the reason I love sharing things like this is because even though I know not everyone can relate to what I am going through specifically, everyone has their own “thing” that they are going through. There is hope and sweetness in the waiting, even though its hard. 🙂

      You are too sweet! He definitely is the cutest assistant i know! hehe 🙂

  5. Praying for you!! Cookie recipe loos amazing!! My mouth is drooling!! Thanks so much for the recipe 🙂

    You have been in my prayers girlfriend. Keep on asking, I had a friend pray fervently for 3 years and I am happy to say that she is about to give birth in a few weeks. Never stop asking, he knows your heart.
    I am having the biggest craving for this skillet. It looks amazing! Saving for later 😉

    1. Thank you for the encouragement girl! You are so right! He knows our heart and yearns to give us those desires. I know he will, its just waiting in the meantime. You are so sweet! I cannot wait until the day that I get to announce I’m pregnant! Eekk! 🙂

      Enjoy those skillet cookies girl!

    Hi Krista – A pastor at our church spoke about doing “prayer circles” when he and his wife were hoping and waiting for a second child…hang in there and keep asking!
    By the way – I am a huge fan of skillet cakes and this skillet cake looks delicious!

    1. Totally agree with that, I’ve got a couple people praying Shashi but always appreciate extra people!

  10. Don’t give up, keep praying and believing, My daughter is pregnant with our second grandchild, will be a 7yr age difference. God has a plan, and we are blessed,. I pray to St Anne and St Gerard of Megella, look up on internet. Good luck

    This dessert looks amazing! I love all the healthier ingredients you used.
    And I’ll say a prayer for you and your family. We had trouble having a second baby too, but it happened when the time was right. Good luck!

    1. Thank you so much Susan. Timing is everything .. but its all God’s timing not ours. You are so right! 🙂

    you had me at skillet cookie.. and oh my gosh— that melty ice creamy.

    Stay strong mama.

    1. Question……you just say “large” skillet. I’m not sure what you consider a large skillet. I have a 10″, 12″, 14″ and a 16″ cast iron skillet. I’m assuming you are referring to a 10″ skillet? I realize not everyone has the cast iron cookware I have but thought I’d ask.


      1. girl!! You are cast iron queen! Glad you asked for clarification, i would say a 10″ to 12″ would be sufficient. I would actually start with the 12″ first so you don’t have a bubbled over cookie mess on your hands. 🙂
