I know I’ve been talking about the weather a lot lately, but when spring decides it really wants to be winter and you are faced with more rainy cold days than your sun deprived brain can cope with, talking about it is the only thing you can do to cope. Talk about it, and try to soothe your summer loving soul with some warm, delicious, sweet treats, like the chocolate chip mug cookies the kids and I made on the weekend.
If it’s going to feel like winter, we get to eat more wintery treats right?
When you don’t want (or need) to make a whole batch of cookies, but you just want something warm and sweet, then you need to give these mug cookies a try.
You mix it, cook it, and eat it out of the same container, and all you need is a table spoon measure for all the ingredients. So that reduces the amount of mess and washing up.
They are so easy to make the kids can do it all on their own. And they are easy to customise, so if someone wants to add sprinkles, or change the chocolate chips to white chocolate, or make it a chocolate chocolate chip cookie, they can. No fuss, no arguments!
If you are dairy free you can change the milk to water, and the butter to oil (coconut oil works well)

You cook these in the microwave in just over a minute, so the whole process only takes a few minutes from start to finish.
Cooking times will vary depending on your microwave and your mug, and depending on how gooey you like your cookies. The mixture has no eggs so you could eat it totally raw if you like! Check the mixture a few times during the cooking process so you can take it out when it is just the way you like it.
You need to be a bit careful about how hot the mug gets, so parental supervision is needed for young kids.
Make a cookie in a mug! To make a chocolate cookie, swap 1 table spoon of flour for 1 table spoon of cocoa.

It was ok it tasted a lot like sugar
It didn’t have much taste
pretty bad, would not recommend. too thick & cake-like, needed more moisture.
don’t cook it in a mug it will cook/over cook on top and be raw underneath. I tried it again but on a plate for less time and it was better.
Bit to cakey and has no taste
June Jones says
I cooked it for a minute and it had plenty of taste and its texture is like a cake pop which I like
I would rate it a 2…no taste at all and doesn’t taste like a cookie.
Cooked it for full 2 min and it came out cakey (which I’m ok with, it’s easier to eat with ice cream that way) but the bottom had a rubbery texture and that prevented me from eating the rest. It was pretty gross to be honest.
Didn’t taste like a cookie but it was OK the amount of what you get after making was disappointing I thought it would be bigger it was too soggy after 1:30 minutes so I put it in for another 30seconds but then it went crumbly
It was tooooooooooo sweet, I had a stomach ache after I made it…. I will give it 3 stars..
Yes that happened to me too
I do no recomend this at all
do not be rude! but it was not the best
It has no flavour tastes alot like rubbery flour ?
Very little amount, I had to increase the quantities.
After 2 minutes in the microwave it was too soft then 30 seconds more and it was hard and dry.
I do not recommend this recipe, it was not tasty.
I just tried this recipe. It tasted awful. Maybe add more sugar.
Also, DO NOT EAT IT RAW. Flour must be cooked to kill E. coli and prevent food poisoning.
