Many of you may recognize the name pizooki, a dessert made popular by the restaurant franchise BJ's Brewhouse. It's a mash up of two of my favorite food groups. Pizza and cookie. I haven't been there since I was a kid, but doing my research for this blog post I found out that the restaurant still exists. Anyways, if you've never been, you haven't missed much. Sorry if that seems harsh, but it's the truth. But that pizooki...
It's a bit nostalgic when I think about it. Choosing the all-you-can-eat salad bar for dinner just so I can justify taking down a whole pizookie all by myself. It might explain why I had the same waistline as I do today! Luckily, I came to my senses and have learned a thing or two over the years about moderation and nutrition. That doesn't mean I can't splurge every once in a while. Beside, it's for the kids.
This recipe is just an adapted oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe, baked in a skillet. It's an impressive presentation for your family and guests. Add in some Grizzlies Brand Organic Swiss Muesli, and BAM! You just made your dessert instantly healthy! No, not really, but you might have added a little nutritional value. Which is more than you can say for a pizookie.
Do you have to make it in a skillet? No. Is it way better? Yes! No judgement here, but I think the flavor is better. That and the cast iron skillet keeps the cookie ooier and gooier, which is really what we are going for.
What you'll need
1 3/4 Cups + 2 Tbs Swiss Muesli
1 1/2 Cups Half all-purpose flour/half whole wheat (or all whole wheat pastry flour)
1 Cup Brown sugar 3/4 Tsp Baking soda 1/4 Tsp Salt 3/4 Cup Coconut oil melted (or canola)
2 Tsp Vanilla extract 1 Cup Semi or dark chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease 10 or 12 inch oven safe skillet.
To make the cookie dough, in a large mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, add the Swiss Muesli, flour, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, melted coconut oil, eggs and vanilla and beat until combined and the dough holds together.
Mix in about 1 cup of the chocolate chips.
Turn the batter out into a prepared pan, pushing the dough into pan. Sprinkle more chocolate chips on the top if you’d like.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
DANGER! Do not over bake!
Let it sit for 5 minutes and serve warm with a generous scoop of ice cream. This dessert is really meant to share and eat right out of the skillet, mainly for accountability sake. Take it from me, unless you want to gain the COVID 19 I would highly recommend sharing, with close family of course:)
