  • 1 1/4 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Butter (1 stick softened, can sub for vegan butter)
  • 1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/3 Cup Brown Sugar (can sub for coconut sugar)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp Water


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a cake pan if using. If using a cast-iron skillet do not grease.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until creamy. Beat in half of the applesauce. Beat in the remaining applesauce until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stir in water and fold in chocolate chips. Chill the dough for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, or 20 minutes in the freezer.
  • Scoop the chilled dough into a cake pan or a cast-iron skillet. If using a cast-iron skillet, bake for 8-10 minutes. If using a cake pan, bake for 16-20 minutes.


  • This recipe is made for two deep dish cookies in an 8" cake pan or four smaller pizookies in a 5" cast iron skillet.
  • If you don't have applesauce on hand and aren't making vegan, you can substitute for 2 eggs.
  • Baking time may depend on the oven and the type of pan you use. Just make sure the center is done and thoroughly baked before consuming.
