Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Do you ever have those days when you’ve just got to have a cookie? Then you have one, and you want another, and the vicious cycle has started. Catch me in a bad moment and I have no willpower. All cookies within a 15 foot radius of me are in grave danger. Don’t even talk to me about donuts. Ugh.

It’s those kind of days when I’m glad to whip up a recipe that makes only one mugcake, brownie, or… cookie. It’s a large cookie but it’s filled with healthier ingredients and no preservatives so it’s much better than eating an entire sleeve of pre-packaged cookies. (Yes, I’ve done that before.)  Not to mention the bonus portion control in making only one yummy something. 😉

The texture of it reminds me of the bakery cookies that my mom used to get me when I was little. A little bit crumbly but still held together for the most part. It’s got a nice mix of flavors and isn’t too sweet. Plus it’s got chocolate chips. You can’t go wrong with chocolate chips.

Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie Single Serve Chocolate Chip Cookie

  • 1 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 Tbsp coconut flour
  • 2 tsp PB2 or peanut flour
  • 1 Tbsp canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 Tbsp egg whites
  • 1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • Pinch of chocolate chips

Mix all ingredients except for the chocolate chips in a small bowl. Press the batter lightly with your fingers into a small round dish. I used a mug and just pressed the batter into a cookie shape in the bottom.

Press the chocolate chips into the top of the batter. Microwave for 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 45 seconds until done. The time will depend on your microwave. I have an ancient one so I was closer to the 1 minute 45 seconds.

Cool slightly and pop out of the dish or mug. Makes a large single cookie at 115 calories – 7g protein, 16g carbs, and 3g fat.

Notes

  • You can probably substitute unsweetened applesauce instead of pumpkin and not alter the results any. I just had an opened can of pumpkin so I used that. OK, I always seem to have an opened can of pumpkin, don’t I?
  • If you don’t have coconut flour, you can try using 2 Tbsp of all purpose flour. That should work but I have not personally tried it. Let me know if you give it a shot and how it works out.
  • I used 6 chocolate chips in my cookie because I thought it sounded like a nice number. Use more, use less. Or use something completely different like raisins, craisins, nuts.
