This Cinnamon Roll Skillet Cookie is about to rock your world, think sweet, cinnamon-filled, warm cookie cake.
I was really in the mood to bake last weekend and I really wanted to make cinnamon rolls, but I also really didn’t want to leave my apartment to go get yeast because I didn’t have any on hand. So I did the next best thing and scrolled through the saved photos on my Instagram for inspiration. I came across someone’s post for a cookie skillet and since that has already been done before and I was now craving said skillet and cinnamon rolls, I thought, “why not combine the two?”
This skillet baby was born out of a mixture of my need for cinnamon rolls and my long desire to bake. And let me tell you, it is damn good. Find yourself a friend, grab two spoons, and go to town on this cake.
It’s completely paleo. It’s grain-free, dairy-free, can be made vegan, has only natural sugars in it. It can be whipped up in literally ten minutes, and then baked in another 20. So what is holding you back from making it? Then if you love this skillet dessert, you gotta try my Healthy Cookie Skillet next!
I’m thinking I need to come up with a frosting for the top next…doesn’t that sound good?
