It includes a bed of rich chocolate pudding, under a layer of coconut whipped cream, and topped with fudgy chocolate brownies. Yum! Did I mention it’s Paleo-friendly? You have to try it for yourself.

Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie on cloth with oatmeal flakes in a bowl and scattered on a gray wooden background

You can make lots of things in a skillet, one of my personal favorites is making my Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal Skillet Cookie recipe. It’s better than your average cookie because I’ve added JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter and JUSTIN’S® Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups to the dough. This cookie comes out of the oven crispy at the top, gooey in the middle.

Chocolate Dipped Cookie Dough Stuffed Grahams stacked on a white background with chocolate syrup drizzle and coconut shavings
Cookies are great, but cookie dough is better. This “cookie dough” takes an egg-less approach to cookie dough and stuffs it between two crunchy graham crackers and dunks it in melted chocolate. Chocolate-Dipped “Cookie Dough” Stuffed Grahams are made with JUSTIN’S® Maple Almond Butter and are a great treat for the entire family.

This flavorful dish was inspired by my love for Asian cuisine. It’s entirely vegetarian and feels like a treat everytime I make it. The combination of zesty, sweet, and savory miso sauce over a bed of veggies and noodles, is the perfect dinner recipe for any night.
