One of my new year’s resolutions is to use my time wisely to share the recipes that I’ve been dying to share with you. And I think I’ve had this microwave chocolate chip cookie recipe on the back burner for at least a year, if not longer. Terrible I know!

I tweaked the recipe to how I like it, wrote it down, and then the handwritten recipe kept getting hidden in the back of my desk drawer. I finally pulled it out and made it again just so I could share it with you guys.

The ingredients for this microwave chocolate chip cookie are basically the same as a regular batch of cookie dough, with the exception of baking soda. The egg yolk does all the leavening (rising) that this single cookie needs in the microwave.

You literally mix it up in a ramekin or mug, and microwave it until the desired doneness. I have found that a flat ramekin cooks more evenly than a mug does. Just FYI.

Just think of all those times that you want to have a dessert, but you don’t dare make a whole batch of cookies because you’d eat more than your fair share and regret it afterwards. That always makes me emotional, and I eat my feelings, which means I would down more cookies. This satisfies that sweet tooth, but with forced portion control. You’re welcome!

DISCLAIMER: I am not claiming that this recipe is healthy by any means. It is still a dessert. If you’re worried about the calories, share it with someone else. 🙂

Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 minute
Total Time: 6 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large egg yolk (do not use egg white)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (Spoon it into the measuring cup and then level it so it's not packed in tight.)
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp chocolate chips

Instructions

    1. Add the butter, sugars, vanilla and egg yolk to a microwave safe dish like a ramekin or mug. (A flat 4-inch/8oz ramekin will bake more evenly than a mug, just FYI.) Mix well.
    2. Add the flour, salt, and chocolate chips. Mix and flatten the top evenly. Top with extra chocolate chips, if desired.
    3. Cook in the microwave for 40 to 60 seconds until just set. Time will vary depending on the dish used and power of the microwave. Enjoy warm!

UPDATED 1/28/17: I have had so many requests for an eggless version. I tested this recipe 4x and this is the version I’m happiest with. The texture is not going to be the same as the egg version, but it still tastes like a chocolate chip cookie. Enjoy!
