Gooey Brownie Skillet

The best and only Gooey Brownie Skillet recipe you’ll ever need. It’s made from pecans and is so delicious you’ll love me and hate me for this one 🙂

True story. After Caleb was born, Jaryd worked night shifts for a good month. During that month, I made microwaveable mug brownies every. damn. night. It wasn’t my best, most balanced month but it was what my postpartum, super hormonal self needed sooo #noregrets. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is…

I’ve become quite the connoisseur when it comes to brownies. Well technically I feel like my brownie knowldedge was something I’ve worked for and honed my entire life, but that postpartum brownie routine reeeally cemented my expertise in the area. 

Anyway, in all of my brownie eating. I’m serious, you guys. In ALL my brownie eating (It’s a lot. I’ve eaten a lot of brownies). IN ALL MY BROWNIE EATING, THESE THESE THESE are the best. I don’t know what else to say besides… view this recipe with caution.

The best and only Gooey Brownie Skillet recipe you’ll ever need. It’s made from pecans and is so delicious you’ll love me and hate me for this one 🙂



  • 1 cup pecans (or sub in 1/2 cup almond flour if you don’t have pecans)
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter (coconut oil or ghee works too)

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • Two scoops of ice cream (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.

  9. Depending on the type of skillet, you may want to grease it with butter or ghee before transferring it.
