Sometimes in life, you crave a gooey, warm chocolate-chip cookie. And sometimes you don't want to make an entire batch. (Who needs to be tempted by a dozen or two hanging around, right?). Whatever the reason for those times, look no further than our recipe for a microwavable chocolate-chip cookie in a mug. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s the ideal way to curb that sweet craving you get after dinner with a single-serving treat (although we won’t judge if you decide to double the recipe). And did we mention it’s ready in seven minutes? So grab your favorite mug and let’s bake.


2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

1 egg

¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract

⅓ cup all-purpose flour

¼ teaspoon baking powder

Pinch of salt

2 tablespoons chocolate chips


1. To begin, in a large mug, melt the butter in the microwave, about 15 to 30 seconds. Add in the sugar as well as the light brown sugar and stir to combine. Next, add the egg and vanilla extract, and then whisk together.

2. Next, add the flour, baking powder and salt to the mug; stir to combine. Continue by stirring in the chocolate chips.

3. Finally, put the mug in the microwave and heat for about 1 to 2 minutes until cooked. Another way to check is to insert a toothpick into the center and make sure it comes out clean. Once cooked throughout, serve immediately and enjoy.
