The peanut butter cookie in a mug from No. 2 Pencil is just as delicious (if not MORE) than the chocolate chip cookie in a mug.
I mean....TWO delicious cookie that can be made in like 2 seconds!! What are the odds?
Trust me when I say - Go! Now! Try these!
(HERE is where you can find the chocolate chip cookie.)
5 Minute Peanut Butter Cookie
1 Tbsp peanut butter
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp white sugar
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 egg yolk
3 tbsp flour
1 Tbsp salted peanuts, chopped
In a microwave safe bowl or mug, place peanut butter and butter together and microwave for about 6 seconds, until melted - or almost melted - and then stir to combine.
Stir in sugars. Then stir in the pinch of vanilla and salt.
Mix in egg yolk until well combined.
Stir in 3 Tbsp flour. Sprinkle with peanuts.
Microwave for 35 - 50 seconds, until done. Start checking for doneness at 35 seconds. (Mine took 50 seconds but it will depend on the power of your microwave)
Let cool for a minute or two and then enjoy!
Can you imagine how good this would be with a scoop of ice cream? Ooooh! Reece's peanut butter cup ice cream!! I would be in peanut butter heaven.
If you would like to see some step by step photos you can visit No. 2 Pencil. She has some great pics. Plus....she also has a recipe for a Sugar Cookie in a mug. I know I will get to those soon!
I am seriously addicted to these 5 minute treats.
Until recently any of the ones I tried were gummy and weird and just not all that great. I find I like them better if I make them in a bowl instead of a mug....I think it cooks better or something. Maybe that's just me. Especially the cake recipes. They still look a little strange because, of course, they don't brown like they would in a regular oven.
Do I like them better than regular, baked-in-the-oven cookies and cakes?
No. Nothing beats the regular oven for texture and appearance, in my opinion.
That being said, when I don't feel like making a whole batch or I am having a have-to-have-it-now craving, these 5 minute recipes are life savers.
