Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie

Servings 1 serving


  • 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


  • 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.
  • Add the flour, salt, and chocolate chips. Mix and flatten the top evenly. Top with extra chocolate chips, if desired.
  • 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!
