How to Make a Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie
You can jump to the recipe card for full ingredients & instructions!

Yes. Simply double all ingredients and divide the chocolate chip cookie dough between 2 prepared microwave-safe mugs. Bake one mug at a time.
No. Only place one mug in the microwave at time to ensure proper baking.
All microwaves are different so the 1 minute bake time is approximate. If your cookie turned out dry, next time reduce the cook time by 15 seconds and check for doneness.
The top of the chocolate chip cookie should be set, puffy, and a little wet – no longer raw and jiggling.
You’ll be amazed at the gooey, delicious perfection that comes out of just a few simple ingredients and 1 minute in a microwave! Homemade cookies have never been so easy!

AND JUICY CRISPY TENDER
Tastes great! However, can the egg yolk be substituted?
You could try a flax egg, applesauce, or silken tofu!
A tablespoon of applesauce and a pinch of baking powder works for me! Thanks!
My preteen kids are obsessed with this for sleepovers! It’s a great quick “baking” activity and they tip it with a scoop of ice cream and it’s a movie worthy snack!!
Fast, easy, good late night snack!
It’s one of my favorites!
Perfect for one person 😊❤️
Thanks for sharing!
What would I need to do to make the cake chocolate?
Cocoa powder. But this recipe is for a chocolate chip cookie!
