Single-Serving GF Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie

Total time
Single-serving cookie for when you're craving a cookie but don't want to tempt yourself with a whole batch.
Recipe type: Dessert
Yields: 1
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or 1 tbsp melted butter)
  • 3 tbsp GF flour (I got mine at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp packed brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt (Note - As one of my readers pointed out, this may be too much salt for some people, so if you’re not as salt-loving as we are, definitely start with a pinch and adjust based on taste.)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 to 2 tbsp chocolate chips
  1. In a small mug/cup/ramekin (I used an expresso mug), mix together all your ingredients except the chocolate chips, until you get sticky cookie dough batter. (This cookie won’t rise much, so you probably don’t want your mug/cup to be too big. Although I guess you could double or triple the ingredients for more cookie volume!)
  2. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Place your mug in the microwave and cook on high for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes. (I suggest doing this in 30 second intervals so you can check on the cookie. If it still looks kind of wet/doughy on top, leave it in the microwave for a little longer. You shouldn’t need more than 1-1/2 minutes though — chocolate chip cookies are supposed to be gooey in the middle!)
  4. Allow mug and cookie to cool for a little bit, then dig in!
