Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie
I'm unsure if there are days when I DON'T crave a chocolate chip cookie, but sometimes the craving hits harder than usual. Let me present to you...the oatmeal chocolate chip mug cookie! Yes! A warm chocolate chip cookie for one baked right in a mug! By "baked," I mean microwaved, so you can literally be eating this in less than 5 minutes.

The addition of oats makes the texture a bit more cookie-like rather than a mug cake. It's denser and not as fluffy. It really, really hits the spot when you just have to get your cookie fix. The brown sugar and salted butter add to the chocolate chip cookie experience. Keep in mind that this is perfect for a craving, but it's not to be compared head-to-head against a cookie like this.


You'll start by combining the dry ingredients in a mug. The melted butter gets stirred together with sugar, vanilla, and egg yolk.

Stir the wet into the dry, then add chocolate chips.

Pop into the microwave for one minute and voila! A mug cookie! (Hint: let it cool for a minute or so after microwaving; it'll be hot!)

Want to kick it up a notch? (Say yes.) Scoop ice cream over the top. You're welcome.
