5 Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie


I don't where I have been for the last million years.
Did you know they have Cookie in a Mug recipes now?
I mean, I knew about the Cake in a Mug recipes and have even fallen in love with a couple. (5 Minute Chocolate Cake and 5 Minute Coffee Cake)
But...COOKIES...
Seriously??
I mean....why was I not told about this? Why is the media not reporting about this?
I don't know if I have mentioned this before but....I love cookies!
L.O.V.E. them.
Yes, I want to marry them.
If I could, I would eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner...and then for dessert. Alright, I know I technically could do that, but, I'm a responsible adult and understand that cookies are treats...not meals. (Although they should be.)
This recipe from the No. 2 Pencil blog is amazing.
I mean....I can now have a warm, soft, delicious, chocolate chip cookie in about 2 minutes. She also has a peanut butter cookie recipe that I am going to try after dinner tonight. I will definitely be getting back to you about how that turns out.
OMG! I just checked her blog again and she now has a sugar cookie in a mug recipe!
Eeeeeeeeee! I'm excited.


5 Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie
Slightly adapted from No. 2 Pencil

Ingredients
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
pinch of vanilla
pinch of salt
1 egg yolk
3 Tbsp flour
1 1/2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips (or regular)

Directions
In a microwave safe bowl or coffee mug, mix butter with sugars. Stir with a fork until well combined. Add vanilla and salt, stir. Add egg yolk (yolk only, not the white), and mix well.
Stir in flour until just combined. Lastly, stir in chocolate chips.

See...looks like regular cookie dough! And it is :)

Cook in microwave for 40 - 60 seconds. Start checking for doneness at 40 seconds. (I cooked mine for the full 60 seconds but it would have been okay at 55 seconds)

Are you excited?
I'm excited.
This was soooooo good. You can go to the No. 2 Pencil blog for step by step photos and her version of the cookie ingredients (She used 2 Tbsp of chocolate chips and measured her flour a tad differently) And of course to see her other brilliant recipes.
I can't wait to make the peanut butter and sugar cookies.
Now I can have cookies any time I want them, without the mess of having to make a whole batch.
Oh no!
Now I can have cookies any time I want them, withot the mess of having to make a whole batch.
That doesn't bode well for my diet efforts.

**UPDATE**
I just wanted to share some other pics of this delicious cookie. I made it with mini baking M&Ms instead of choc chips.

 
I just mixed up the ingredients as above and spread it in an individual casserole dish that was microwave safe.
 
 
Microwaved for 60 seconds and voila!
Colorful, fun cookie in no time at all.
Oh, yeah, this time I lined the bottom of the dish with a small cut out round of parchment paper so I didn't have to eat it out of the dish when it was done....
 
 
I simply ran a knife around the outside and it popped right out.
Yay cookies!
(FYI - It was a little thick because I used a narrower, taller dish. It is more cookie-like if you make it in a cereal type bowl as it is shallower and wider. You could probably even get away with microwaving the dough on a plate. )

    3. I'm not sure Braxtyn.... If you followed the measurements in the recipe exactly it should have been okay. That being said....it might just be a personal preference thing! A cookie fresh from the oven is still going to taste yummier - in my opinion. Sorry it didn't work out for you! :)

    4. Maybe I added to much egg. Lol :)

  4. Mine just tasted like eggs. I followed the recipe exactly. Maybe next time I'll add more vanilla and 1/2 an egg yolk.

  6. Oddest thing, I followed your instructions, but my cookie ended up looking and tasting like yellow cake. Is this normal or am I just a based cook?

    1. Hmmm....I've never had that happen. Did you use self-rising flour? Other than that....I'm at a loss. Sorry I can't be much help :/

    2. Over at No.2 pencil, she says if it turns out cakelike, to try less time in the microwave. :)

    3. Did you use margarine instead of real butter?

  11. Didn't work for me :( tasted like doughy egg and I had to toss it. I'll have to try again some other time.

  12. Plain or self rising flour?

    1. maybe the problem with the cookies that tasted like egg was the egg size, eg. used lg or ex lg egg, mabe try using just a small sz. egg.

  13. Just what I need!!! I live alone and would have to get rid of most of a batch.Now I can have a warm fresh cookie when ever I want.Thanks heaps!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. So yummy!!! I've made this at least ten times since I discovered it. The last cookie I made was my all time favorite - it wasn't too moist or dry. I put mine in for 40 seconds and then checked, then put it in for an additional 8 seconds. It was perfect! I don't like a TON of chocolate chips so I just put a pinch in and it was perfect. I sprayed the bottom of the mug with a teeeeeeeny bit of Pam and it didn't stick to the bottom of the mug like it usually does! :) Hooray for this yummy recipe! Thank you! :D

    1. I'm not sure why that would happen, Sarah. Did you make any changes to the ingredients or cooking method at all?

  16. Does it work in an oven? I don't have a microwave.

    1. I don't see why it wouldn't work in an oven. That being said - I have never tried it that way. Let us know how it turns out for you if you give it a go. I'd be curious how long you would have to bake it in the oven....

  17. Do you have a recipe like this but with peanut butter?

  18. Is anyone interested to know calorie content? I was a bit surprised, to say the least. :)

    1. Love to know the calorie count

  19. Mine turned out yummy, but very crumbly... What do you think i did wrong???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hmmm....the only thing I can think of is maybe the batter wasn't wet enough....maybe try adding a touch less flour and see if that helps ??

      Delete
    2. Oh boy, the calorie content...nope, dont want to know beause I already know it would be bad lol.
      Just made mine. Didnt have plain APF, only had wholemeal and didnt have butter, only had Nuttelex lite.
      I can taste the flour lol but still not too bad.

  21. LOVE THIS!!! Every other single serving cookie I've tryed hasn't worked! THANK YOU so so Much! My brother and I love it!

  22. Thank you so much for this recipe! I substituted the butter for a tbsp of apple sauce (for a healthier twist) and it turned out so moist and delicious. Success! Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Uh, how do u do a "pinch" of vanilla?? Hehe guess a drop or two....

    ReplyDelete
  24. I just tried this recipe - yummy!! I followed your recipe and the cookie turned out perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  25. how much is a pinch of vanilla....and is he butter melted

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. A pinch is a tiny little bit. Say an eighth of a tsp or thereabouts. The butter is not melted

    2. mine got burnt i dont know why i tryed it again it still was bunrt

      Delete
    3. Your microwave must be very high powered. I've never had mine burn. You could always try half the time and check it and then go in 5 second increments until it is done.....

  26. Being gluten-free, I substituted the regular flour for gluten-free & added a touch of xantham gum. Delicious! Just what I needed! :] Thank you

  27. OMG best cookie I have ever had.. I didn't have choc. chips so went without still was the best cookie I have EVER had!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. For all the people who weren't fans of this recipe, don't forget you can freeze raw cookie dough, rolled into a cylinder, wrapped in foil or baking paper, then slice off rounds and bake one or two fresh cookie every time you want one!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Not bad, nothing even close to the real thing but when you want something quick for one person, this is it.

  30. I put in a teaspoon of peanut butter in mine, it was fantastic!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I put a tablespoon of Peanut Butter and a Tbsp of Nutella, it was delicious but it was heavy. i think its good for2 if you'll eat it after a meal. if for snack, you can eat it by yourself! IT WAS THE BEST!!! Thanks for the recipe :))

  32. Does it matter if you use dark brown sugar or light brownsugar?

  33. Is there anyway this can be made healthier/vegan? It looks soooooooo good, and I really want to make this.....
    I would feel less guilty it would be healthier! :)

  34. Is there anyway I can use this recipe in like an oven??Because we dont have a microwave now.

    Replies
    1. I would imagine you could cook it at 350 for probably about 10 minutes (you'd have to keep an eye on it) like you would a normal batch of cookies. I don't see why it wouldn't work. :)

  35. mine was really you know when you get an apple and its all like thick and strawy.. well thats what my "cookie" tasted lke :( x

  36. I made a vegan cookie and used vegetable oil instead of egg! It was SO good! Thank you so much for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hey guys...can you make this with a healthier egg substitute? Say applesauce or flaxseed egg?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I have never tried it with anything but egg. I noticed the person above you commented they made it without the egg by using oil instead. If you give it a try with a substitute please let us know how it turned out for you :) Thank you !

  38. Crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside!this recipe is certainly ONE of the best!

  39. Fast and Easy Recipe. I tried making it with almonds and it was perfect! :)

  40. I love your recipe for this one, pretty much it's simple and I love the way you used the souffle cup in this

    ReplyDelete
  41. Just tried this and mine kind of tastes like playdough. Real spongy. Thinking my salt didn't get mixed all the way or something. Ill have to try again.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I CAN"T believe that I just learned about these "mug recipes" just a few days ago! I tried a muffin one, and it turned out perfect! Can't wait to try out a cookie recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I been looking for a good cookie dough recipe since I like cookie dough better than cookies, and all the ones I've tried don't taste very good. I made this and instead of using egg I put in a little milk and it tastes delicious!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. This worked deliciously GLUTEN FREE too. What I did: 1/2 TBSP butter, 1/2 TSBP olive oil, 2 scant TBSP white sugar, 1 egg yolk, dash vanilla, pinch of salt, 1 TBSP Robin Hood GF flour mix, 2 TBSP brown rice flour and threw in some smarties - perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I made this substituting a little unsweetened applesauce for the egg yolk and it was delicious!

  46. I don't have a microwave, so in the oven I put it at 350 for 16-25 minutes in the oven! Hope this helps!!!!

  47. Made this for the hubs and I for a dessert tonight and threw a scoop of ice cream on top and it was great!
