Day 73 – Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug


I’m sure you’ve seen pins for mug cakes around Pinterest, but have you seen mug cookies? Yes, a cookie cooked in the microwave in a mug! Just like the mug cakes, I was skeptical of this one too. Boy, was I in for a surprise!


1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Granulated White Sugar
1 Tablespoon of firmly packed Dark Brown Sugar
3 Drops of Vanilla Extract
Small Pinch of Kosher Salt
1 Egg Yolk (discard the egg white)
Scant 1/4 of All Purpose Flour (apparently this means a little less than 1/4 cup)
2 Tablespoons of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips


1. Start by melting your butter in the microwave.

2. Add sugars, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine.

3. Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir to combine.

4. Add flour, then stir again.

5. Add the chocolate chips, and give a final stir.

6. Cook in microwave 40-60 seconds, start checking for doneness at 40 seconds. Mine actually took about 70 seconds.

Oh snap! This was so good! This definitely beats any of the mug cakes I have tried so far.

  4. Just tried and let me tell you, it tastes AMAZING! Thank you so much for this wonderful idea. I’m gunna do it all the time now! lol

  5. I let this cool a few minutes, maybe 10, before eating it and by then it was so hard it almost broke my spoon. I had high hopes for it, but now I’m disappointed. 🙁

  6. It’s amazing if you pour milk onto the hot cookie!! Seriously, try it.

  7. Don’t use self rising flour. It makes cake instead of cookie. Tastes good tho!

  8. Just made these with the kids, they loved them. I made mine with canna butter and it was delicious. We put vanilla ice cream on it with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Great. Will be saving to do again.
