  1. Absolutely do I deserve a cookie! :) Love love love this!

  2. Oh man, you know I’m now going to have to make this for breakfast, lunch AND dinner!

  3. This is just dangerous my friend, I will never eat a normal meal again ;)

    Cheers
    CCU

  4. Totally dangerous, but oh so genius! I’m doing this TONIGHT!

  5. You’re right, I DO deserve it! :P

  6. My favorite is always that first hot, soft gooey cookie just out of the oven. Now I can have THAT COOKIE every time. Plus I see a lot of egg whites in my future for Angel food, meringues or egg white omelettes. Just joking about the omelette thing,

  7. You mean to tell me when I’m craving a cookie I can have one in less than a minute? Oh, this could be dangerous…very, very dangerous. I foresee mugs of cookies daily. This looks so good!

  8. Oh no. This, this is trouble. I mean i think I could make this every hour of the day! That would make me very happy!

  9. Ohhhhhhh baby. I’m craving a mug cookie for BREAKFAST now. If I toss a little vanilla frozen yogurt on top, that’s basically a parfait, right? ;-)

  10. I can tell you right now that this recipe is dangerous! I can see me making mugs of cookies – bad, bad, bad – lol!

  11. OH. MY. YUM. This is totally the solution to my weekly “I just need a chocolate chip cookie” cravings! Must try this ASAP (for breakfast, maybe? ;))

  12. Yep! I am so going to do this!

  13. I love this!! It looks so delish and super simple and quick, which is what we all want when a craving strikes!

  14. Holy cow, YUM! This looks amazing, Georgia!!

  15. This is just AWESOME!!!!

  16. I am going to try this soon! So quick and delicious!

  17. LOVE the simplicity to this! This sounds like the perfect mid-week snack :)

  18. This is dangerous! I could make one of these at least once a day!

  19. These are just too fun and fabulous looking, love it!

  20. Oh man, I’m dying….this looks absolutely scrumptious! It’s treats like this that make me want to finally buy a microwave!

  21. Well as if I need another reason to eat a chocolate chip cookie! This will be a big hit w the kiddos!

  22. GAH, this looks SO good! I just went to make it, in fact, and realized we’re out of eggs. TRAGIC! Sending my husband to the store for some after work so I can make this tonight. Thanks for the idea, friend!

  23. Girl, you are just bent on turning me to the dark side! Aren’t you? Thanks for sharing yet another scrumptious recipe with tantalizing photography! xo

  24. Haha! So I’m not the only one who frantically begs my hubby to get ingredients on his way home? Desperation calls in the form of cookies sometimes! You’re gonna love it, Amy!

  25. This sounds amazing! And so easy, definitely better for portion control (which is so needed in this house, haha). Definitely trying soon.

  26. What a fun idea! So easy and no mess either.

  27. This is just too fun-I will have to try with the little people in my life and some bigs ones too,lol;-)

  28. I love a good mugcake – fast, easy, single-serving portion! Great job on this!

  29. It’s like you read my mind. I do deserve a cookie today! I worked an 11-hour day!

  30. Oh my. Once again I detect genius on the part of a food blogger. This look so up my alley and yet so very dangerous! Love this idea, it’s one I won’t be able to get out of my head, for sure!

  31. My entire being wants this right now Georgia! The perfect little treat! And I just happen to have vanilla ice cream.

  32. Now you’ve done it! If my hubby sees this, it will become a nightly ritual along with his chocolate milk. I think I married a big kid :)

  33. This is outright ingenious and very dangerously delicious. 1 minute from cup to mouth… amazing. This is a great after school snack for my boys.

  34. I absolutely love this, Georgia! Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite and to have one hot and ready in one minute is great! Definitely making this treat soon! :)

  35. Heck yes, it’s hump day! Heck yes, I deserve a cookie in a mug! I have eeee’rything I need already so I’m gonna hop to it! Thanks for the great idea!

  36. Love it Georgia! This will be perfect after baby comes…when I’m craving something sweet but need simplicity! Thank you for sharing. Such a fun idea!

  37. Perfect for a cold winter night down here. You all have summer but it’s cold where I am and a nice warm mug full of cookie would put a smile on this face. :)

  38. I have yet to try one of these…I think I will tomorrow!

  39. A cookie in a mug?! This is perfect!

  40. Hi Georgia. Before i indulge in these where were u all my life cookies ,can u provide me with the nutrition facts. Thank u

  41. This is way too dangerous!!

  42. mmmm that looks so so good. and the ice-cream on top makes it even better :)

  43. This is simply fantastic… and a bit dangerous for me. I adore chocolate chip cookies! Eating this mug cookie hot out of the microwave is like getting that first warm and gooey one out of the oven every time. Okay… I just drooled a bit. :)

  44. Made this last night and had one VERY happy husband! Such a great recipe! Thanks dear! xx

  45. What a terrific dessert and I love your presentation. This is a great comfort dessert xx

  46. That looks just perfect – and not having a whole batch of tempting cookies around would be a very good thing!

  47. What a great idea Georgia! Perfect for when you want just one! :)

  48. I looove this! I need mug cookies more often, because otherwise I eat the entire batch!

  49. Oh, no… I am in so much trouble now that I saw this! Adios, skinny jeans!

  50. I’ve tried two (?) microwave cakes/cookies in the microwave before–and was sort of amazed by the power of a microwave. This one looks delicious! It’s such a great option for a craving that just won’t stop, haha :)

  51. Awesome! My kids will love this.

  52. There is ALWAYS a reason to have a minute cookie on hand. Because it’s Thursday is the perfect excuse to make one (three) of these :)

  53. I need this in my life!! Dessert for tonight ;)

  54. Oh I love this idea!! It’s the perfect portion so I don’t eat too many cookies in one sitting! :)

  55. Oh damn!! I need this now. I’m feeling sorry for myself as I’ve fractured my knee cap and am stuck on the sofa, so I definitely need to make myself feel better with this!

  56. This is a new idea to me and I think I love it!

  57. i made cookies last night with a heap of washing up, this is what i am going to do next time!

  58. Cannot wait to make this! YUMmmmmmmmmm.

  59. Oh my goodness Georgia! This cookie is perfect for when I don’t want to share. :) And when I want a giant scoop of ice cream on top. :) Genius!!

  60. I haven’t tired these before. I just can’t imagine a microwaved cookie tasting that great, but…you might have convinced me to give it a go! :)

  61. Very good, tried it just now with some vanilla ice cream!

  62. That looks so good!! I definitely need to try this soon! :)

  63. I made this with my 3 year old son for a special rainy day treat after lunch and we loved it! This is why I love your blog — the recipes are ones I’ll actually make (& ingredients I have on hand) and they turn out delicious! Your photography is amazing too. Thanks!

  64. I LOVE single serving things:)) I would even say they are one of my most favorite things haha! Can’t wait to make this:)

  65. Do you know around about how many calories are in it? :) looks lovely for a guilty treat but want to keep track of the calories whilst on a diet :P

  66. One serving is 442 calories, about the equivalent of 4 regular chocolate chip cookies. If shared, the calories would be half of course. I’d say it’s worth the indulgence!

  67. I just made this for the 1st time and it was soo-oo good!! AND easy to throw together!! Just a small treat and I’m good! Thanks for posting on your site!

  68. Egg yolk as in, no whites at all?

  69. Yes, that’s correct.

  70. What happens if I just use the whole egg? Hate to throw the whites away and it would never get used if I saved it…

  71. No idea, I’ve never tried it. But you can always freeze your egg whites in an ice cube tray for later use.

  72. THIS IS AWESOME! I’ve tried it twice and I found it tastier with only ONE tablespoon of chocolate chips. Great recipe!!

  73. I just made this. Absolutely to die for! It’s a sin not to try this.

  74. Try these with Butterscotch chips or white chocolate chips and throw in a cple of chopped nuts. WAY too good!

  75. Just made this last night! The hubby made a nutella mug cake and realized that we were out of nutella, so I had to try something different. I was disappointed until I found yours, which was delicious (and better than his in my opinion!) and just the right portion size. Thanks!

  76. So glad you loved this recipe, Laura! Thanks for stopping by!

  77. Can I put it in cooker, because I don’t have a microwawe?

  78. Sorry, not sure what you mean by a “cooker” but I can’t recommend making this in any kitchen appliance besides a microwave.

  79. This was a huge hit in our house! My 7 yo daughter actually wrote the recipe down so she could make it on her own when she wanted it. Could be dangerous…..i only had a taste, but it was very filling for them…some couldn’t finish it all.

  80. Made this yesterday for myself and pre-made one for my husband all he had to do was pop it in the microwave and he loved it. Amazing recipe.

  81. I love this I put in a whole egg by mistake and added some sliced almonds with the chocalate chips it came out great I can’t wait to share this with my family

  82. This was so easy & so delicious!!! YUMMY!!

  83. Can’t I replace anything with brown sugar or not add it?

  84. Sorry, just as in a regular chocolate chip cookie recipe, brown sugar is required.

  85. This would be great for a college student. Crazy Q, but can you substitute egg for anything??

  86. I’ve never tried it, but you can possibly substitute it with a small amount of refrigerated egg product.

  87. I am addicted! This is sooo good! Thank you for posting!

  88. OMG I just made this, I never trusted all this microwave baked things, but I was clearly missing a lot.
    Thanks for posting this.

    :)

  89. Ooh wow the texture of this looks amaazing!

  90. Ohh, it’s so hard not to make more. (: I love the simplicity of it! :D No more store bought cookies to calm my cravings. (:

  91. Just tried it, I’m in love. Thanx for this!!

  92. Didn’t have any eggs so I substituted a bit of buttermilk and pinch of baking soda… Just as good, took about 15 seconds longer though.

  93. First bite: Ouch! That’s really hot!
    Second bite: Yummmm

  94. Reminds me of a muffin at Panera. Substitute blueberries for chocolate chips = breakfast!

  95. Soooooo good! Not quite a chocolate chip cookie, but it’s pretty close! Not to mention it’s great for portion control and very little mess to clean up.

    5 star recipe for sure!

  96. I will try this one out. If it is as good as it looks I will use it for my rehab patients to try in the rehab kitchen as a part of their therapy! :)

  97. OMG! This is AMAZING! Hi, i’m from 18 and from Singapore and holy cow this is like the best thing ever- everything fits into one bowl that pops straight into the microwave ( 50sec was just right for me) and so little washing up! I could do this a million times over! THANK YOU!

  98. This is so good to know! There are so many times when I am craving some chocolate chip cookies but do not feel like baking the entire amount of cookies! Yay!

  99. OMG, I was actually so paranoid to try this incase i made it wrong or something (I’m not the best cook, lol) but it was soooo easy to make and turned out great. Even better was that it tasted delish!!!! Will deffo be doing this again…..a lot!!!! Lol xxx

    Was craving a chocolate chip cookie, but did not want to make an entire batch so I turned to my best friend Google and he brought me to you! I read the recipe – ran to my microwave, made the cookie in a mug and ran back to my computer to rave to you about it! Brilliant idea and this was exactly what the doctor ordered. The ONLY problem I had was when I cracked the egg open it had TWO yolks! So my dilemma was do I throw out the second yolk or do I make a second cookie in a mug. Guess what I did? Yup! And my husband loved it too! I love quick, fun, good recipes like this one — Thank you for posting!

  101. Hi I wanted to try out this recipe but i didn’t want to use brown sugar. Will that affect it?

  102. You could try substituting with additional granulated sugar, though I’m not sure the outcome would be the same.

  103. Didn’t cook, just ate the dough 10/10 would recommend. Most important thing I have made in my life

  104. I made this vegan and gluten free!! Thank you for the recipe~

    Butter → coconut oil
    Egg → ground flax seed w/ almond milk
    :^)

  105. I liked this recipe, though I had to microwave mine a little bit longer. Also, I would cut the vanilla in half again as my cookie tastes awfully vanilla-y!

  106. I made that as a dessert for me and my hubby. It was delicious! Just the right size and it was made quick. Thank you from Germany :)

  107. Wonderful treat! I’ll keep enjoying these. Thank you (:

  108. The best cookie in a cup Eva had ,I commented on discussing cake in a cup ,to come to this web site. :)thanks a lot ;)

  109. Sometimes I want to double it and sometimes it won’t cook.how do I fix that?

  110. I’d recommend just making two separate batches, mixing the ingredients separately, if you want two portions.

  111. I just made a double version of this. I used a soup mug and it seemed to cook just fine in 60 secs. Although, instead of 2 egg yolks I just used a whole egg. Kinda had to, I only had one egg left. It tastes delicious, although I probably could have used a touch more vanilla.

  112. I can’t find the words to thank you for this recipe! I love it so much. I didn’t have any chocolate to chop but I added a ts of Nutella and kinda made a swirl in the dough. Yeah, it’s awesome. (sorry for any english mistakes, not a native speaker (: )

  113. Loved it! i was out of chocolate chips so I used a Reece’s peanut butter cup instead. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe :)

  114. Love this! I used a crushed oreo instead of chocolate chips, and it was delicious!

  115. amazing and easy recipe it looks delicious i love ur website

  116. Can I make this with m & m’s?

  117. Sounds like a great idea to me!

  118. I had no vanilla so i made it with cream…It worked Great!
    I also did half m&m’s and half chocolate chunks.

  119. Thank for this great snack!

  120. I just discovered this recipe during finals week of college. Let me tell you, this is such a life saver. I needed something to keep me going, but didn’t want to spend too much time away from studying. This was perfect, and it tasted amazing!

  121. If I put more than 1 in microwave, how long should I cook for? (Say about 6 of them)? Still a minute or like a minute per cup?

  122. I’d recommend cooking them all separately. Or just making a regular batch of chocolate chip cookies! ;) I have a great recipe here: http://www.thecomfortofcooking.com/2014/12/best-ever-soft-chocolate-chip-cookies.html

  123. Thanks :)

  124. In case anyone is wondering, these are delicious. Follow the recipe exactly as written and you won’t be disappointed!

  125. Can you make it with the egg white as well?

  126. No, sorry. Just the egg yolk is necessary.

  127. Thanks for the recipe. It took me less than 3 minutes to make it. Next time I’ll try to half the sugar though, it’s a bit too sweet for me. But great recipe!

  128. Christy Spurlock says:

    My husband’s request tonight was a chocolate chip cookie. I didn’t want to make a whole batch so i recalled seeing your recipe on Pinterest recently. I looked it up and made it since I already had the ingredients. A welcome surprise and now one of my favorite recipes. I’d much rather have one mug of CCC than a couple dozen laying around. Very simple but so delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.

  129. To the person who asked if brown sugar can be omitted: I’m guilty of making this recipe every once in a while. Today I ended up unexpectedly alone in the house, wanted a treat but did not want to spent the whole me-time in the kitchen.
    Probably because of my greed and speed I accidentally forgot the brown sugar: the endresult lacked the depth of the butterscotchy toffee hints that this sugar gives, but it resulted in a very delicious, subtly sweet and superspeedy chocolate-chip-cake-in-mug. One way, or another: it’s a treat!

  130. THUD!!! Sorry, that was just the sound of me dying from one to many cookies.
    Screw that! No such thing as to much cookie.

  131. hahahaha i just made this but i accidentally put in the whole egg instead of just the yolk. turned out… well really eggy but still really delicious. will be making it again, only with the yolk next time!! thanks for sharing

  132. This came out soooo good!!! If you don’t have any vanilla extract, just use 2 teaspoons of maple syrup! However, just lower the amount of sugar you use by very slightly! Was delicious!!! :) thanks for the recipe !!

  133. Wolfy5960 says:

    It tasted splendid! Wonderful recipe!

  134. ive gotta say i thought it would taste super yolky but it didn’t it tastes amazing

  135. Hi Georgia,
    I’ve just recently learned that I’m gluten-free. Do you know of any good gluten-free flour brands that you would recommend? The comments look complimenting, so I will DEFINATELY have to try this recipe!
    Thanks so much,
    K

  136. I have never used gluten free flours in my baking, sorry!

  137. Hey K! i used Coconut flower that’s gluten free!

  138. Didnt have chocolate chips so I used m&Ms must try!!

  139. Literally the best thing I have ever tasted in my life. :)

  140. I just made this and am eating as i type, and i have to say that this is truly amazing! i have tried tons and tons of mug desserts and none have tasted good, but this one actually tastes like a cookie! So glad i tried it! Thank you~

  141. meander mc guffin says:

    this is awesommmmmmmmwwwwwwwwwe

  142. meander mc guffin says:

    O LOVE THEES MUG COOKIES THEY ARE THE BEST THINGS I VER HHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAADDDDDDDD

  143. Thanks for this very good. I used oat flour. Next time I will try in a little dish in the oven for crunchy-ness.

  144. I just did it-best thing ever!!!

  145. I Like to add just the tiniest bit of baking soda to give it that extra fluff! And when the cookie comes out of the microwave, it is much too hot to eat right away. I remedy this by pouring cold milk over the cookie for the most satisfying cookie/milk combos ever!

  146. Julie Montague says:

    I’ve been soooooooo good lately and have been watching calories and regularly exercising; making a life change basically. But, I just was really craving a chocolate chip cookie. I haven’t had sugar or chocolate to speak of for over 2 1/2 months. I googled, got this recipe, just made it, I’m in heaven. I’m good now for another 2 1/2 months! What a treat!

  147. Made this last weekend when I was craving cookies but it was too late in the evening to make a full batch. Have to say it was very yummy, and I will definitely make again! Thanks for posting!

  148. No, no you didn’t! Are you kidding me? You people are so dangerous!!! A cup with a cookie in it? Don’t tell my mom!

  149. Just made this. Delish! It is just enough. I did have to cook it longer because I have a small, lower wattage microwave. (Cooked 50 sec, 10 sec, 5 sec).

  150. I can’t figure out why every time i make this recipe it doesn’t turn out right. When I add the flour the dough is still soupy.. not like cookie dough at all. I’ve tried several times and it always seems the same. is anyone else having this issue? do i just add more flour?

  151. I used to have issues making mug cakes/cookies too. I really think it depends what mug you use and how melted your butter is; try that? I’ve always had issues in this department too, but adding more flour only made it taste like nothing :/

    Happy to say I did try this recipe myself – twice (the gf saw me making it and wanted one for her) – and I have to say, this is one of the few I’ve tried that actually came out not only the consistency it was supposed to, but deliciously simple as well :D Can’t wait to make another soon!

  152. I’ve made this recipe a few times now, and while I do like it, I’ve found that it’s just a little too sweet for my liking – I upped the flour to 4 tbsp. and reduced the sugars to 1 tbsp. brown and 1/2 tbsp. white. This seems to “do it” for me. I blame my 6.5 year weight loss surgery – I’ve become accustomed to limited sugar! Anyway, thank you for the great “base” recipe to go off of. :) I’ve pinned it for safekeeping!

  153. do you need to have brown sugar?

  154. wonderful…..very delicious.

  155. Great, I will make tomorow

  156. You’ll wish you never made it… because it’s SO GOOD! Thank you for this recipe :)

  157. Do you know why all mug cookie recipes call for an egg yolk and never a whole egg?

  158. Wow..this gooey chocolate chip cookie is absolutely best breakfast:) I found your post from Pinterest ! Thanks for sharing, Georgia!

  159. Hmmm !!! Very good! Give your mouth water.

  160. I ⅼike wһat you guys are uѕuallү up too. This type
    of clever work and coverage! Keep up the great works guys I’vе included you ցuүs to bⅼogroll.

  161. I’ll immediately snatch your rss as I can not in finding your e-mail subscription hyperlink or e-newsletter service. Do you’ve any? Please allow me recognize so that I could subscribe. Thanks.

  162. anyone try putting it on parchment paper and see if you get a round cookie?

  163. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
