This chocolate chip cookie in a mug just takes one minute to cook in the microwave and it’s done to perfection! It’s a great mug cookie for one when you just want a little something sweet at night.
Ok so I am a sucker for dessert and this chocolate chip cookie in a mug hits the spot! I’d eat it first just to make sure I had room, but that probably wouldn’t be the best impression to leave my kids. Come the new year I too am always looking to eat a bit healthier and of course portion control is a big part of that. I cannot cut out sweets entirely…just sayin’….so this eggless cookie in a mug is perfect for one person! It’s one of our favorite mug recipes. (originally published 12/16)
I know…it really is amazing!
You can easily package all the dry ingredients together in ziploc baggies and then each time you want a cookie for one you just add the milk, oil, and vanilla and you’re ready to microwave it for just one minute!
Occasionally I do cook a whole batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies but seriously I rarely have time for that, and we really don’t need 24 in our house when my aim is to have sweets every now and then.
This dessert in a mug is perfect though for a treat in the evening when the kiddos go to bed (yes you’re allowed to do that)!
The recipe below doesn’t include nuts but you can add them like you see above. I added chopped walnuts and it’s tasty too. Most of the time I just add lots of chocolate. It comes out a bit ooey gooey which I think is perfect, and since it’s eggless you don’t have to worry about that factor.
You want to make sure to NOT overcook it or it quickly will turn dry and not nearly as good, one minute is plenty!
Think of it as a chocolate chip cookie straight out of the oven but cooked in a mug in the microwave, it’s that texture. Very soft and moist and ready to fall apart if you were to try and pick it up, just like we like it. If you’re looking for a crispy cookie in a mug recipe this is not it. This is for those of us who love a slightly underbaked cookie for one you can pop in the microwave for one minute and enjoy it all to yourself. It is so good you will NOT want to share it, believe me.
Here’s what you need to make this chocolate chip cookie in a mug:
- Medium – Large mug
- Brown sugar
- Baking powder
- Chocolate chips – I like semi sweet chips
Super easy way to make a cookie for one right??!!
Package contents up in a baggie with a tag that tells them the wet ingredients to add, put inside the Motherhood Winging It mug you see here or another (med./large size) and it’s a perfect gift too!
