What Makes This Recipe Great

I’ve been trying to create a delicious gluten free and paleo mug cookie recipe that actually has the texture of a cookie rather than a cake. I wanted it dense, chewy, and soft, and I finally nailed it with this easy Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie recipe. I’ve already made it twice this week, and I’m writing this on Wednesday!

If you’ve never heard of a mug cake or cookie, the concept is wonderful. You make 1-2 servings of a dessert in a mug, and it’s microwaved and ready in just 1-2 minutes. This recipe uses a handful of pantry staples and is so much easier than making a whole batch of cookies (I would eat the entire batch!).

It’s the perfect easy dessert, and the resulting gooey chocolate chip cookie is absolutely divine!

Ingredient Notes

As I mentioned above, there are just 6 simple ingredients in the mug cookie recipe if you don’t count salt.

  • almond flour: This is what I use in place of regular all purpose flour to make it gluten free.
  • coconut sugar: This is a natural sweetener that is a 1:1 swap for white sugar!
  • baking powder
  • dairy free milk: I used almond milk, but you can use soy milk, coconut milk, or any milk of your choice.
  • almond butter: You can use peanut butter if you want.
  • chocolate chips: I like these for a paleo and vegan option. Feel free to use white chocolate chips if desired.

That’s it! As you can see, this is an eggless chocolate chip cookie in a mug, but don’t worry. With the help of baking powder, it’ll rise perfectly into a wonderful cookie mixture.

Step-by-Step Instructions

The instructions couldn’t be easier for this mug cookie recipe. You don’t have to turn on the oven, it’s insanely quick, and you can make a small serving at a time– the perfect size!

  1. In a small microwave-safe mug, add the dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and salt, and stir together.
  2. Add in the wet ingredients: milk and almond butter. Stir well with a fork until combined.
  3. Fold in chocolate chips.
  4. Microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.
  5. Remove from the microwave and top with more chocolate chips while the paleo mug cookie is still hot.
  6. Cool for 5 minutes, then enjoy your warm cookie with a spoon!

As you can see, this easy mug chocolate chip cookie takes minimal effort, and it’s dangerously quick. You’ll want to make it over and over again! A favorite recipe to satisfy your sweet tooth.

Notes & Substitutions

  • If you are nut free, you can make this vegan cookie in a mug recipe with gluten free flour. I’ve tried it with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour, and it turned out wonderful! It won’t be paleo though because it’s made with grains.
  • Maple syrup or honey can be used in place of coconut sugar. However, if you do this, I would reduce the almond butter to 2 tbsps.
  • Make sure to use a mug that’s big enough for the batter to rise about 1 inch.
  • I like to add chocolate chips on top after the cookie is done cooking to make it look more like a chocolate chip cookie. However, this is optional, and you can feel free to mix in all 2 tbsp to the batter.
  • Serve with a scoop of ice cream, extra chocolate chips, and additional toppings, if desired.
  • Different microwaves may adjust the cooking time, so keep that in mind when making it.
