Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie

Last week I shared a picture of one of my favorite treats, a cookie in a mug & had many requests for the recipe, so here you are!  This is such a great quick fix for when you are craving warm chocolate chip cookies.  And, bonus, it serves one so you don't find yourself eating the entire batch of cookies or half of the cookie dough...it happens, it's fine.  Another thing I love about this treat is that there is hardly any clean up!  Mix, "bake" and enjoy all from the same mug.  I have been trying to eat as healthy as possible when I can (nothing says healthy like a cookie in a mug haha) so the recipe I use is a bit unique, but I included the more common ingredients in the recipe as well.  So, what are you waiting for!  Go make yourself a cookie in a mug! 

 


CHOCOLATE CHIP MUG COOKIE

INGREDIENTS

1 mug
1 tbsp ghee (or butter)
1 tbsp organic cane sugar (or regular sugar)
2 tsp grade A maple syrup (or 1 tbsp dark brown sugar)
1 splash (about an eighth of a tsp)  vanilla extract
1 pinch sea salt
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp cashew, peanut or sunflower butter
2 tbsp coconut flour (or ¼ cup flour)
2 tbsp chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Add ghee to mug & melt in the microwave
Add cane sugar, maple syrup, vanilla and salt.  Mix with fork.
Once combined, add in egg yolk and peanut/cashew/sunflower butter.
Add flour, then stir again. 
Finally, add in your chocolate chips.

Place in the microwave and cook for 45 seconds.  Depending on your microwave, it could take as little as 35 seconds or as many as 60 seconds.  The “cookie” still cooks once removed from the microwave, so you want it to seem a bit “gooey” it will firm up.

Let it cool just a bit then enjoy!
