Five minutes people – I’m not even kidding!!! You can have a Paleo Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie in five minutes flat. I even timed myself – it took me 3 1/2 minutes to throw it together and 1 minute to cook, I just added an extra 30 seconds for good measure πŸ™‚

I’ve tried my share of mug cookies and cakes and haven’t been impressed, but this one impressed me. So much so that I’ve already made it countless times and told all my family and friends about it because it’s just so quick and easy but yet has the taste and texture of a freshly baked homemade cookie. I’ve made it so many times in fact, that I’ve added quite a few notes to the recipe to ensure that it turns out exactly perfect every time!

While most of my recipes lately have been egg free, this recipe has an egg yolk. Many people who have an egg allergy are actually not allergic to the egg yolk but the egg white – plus even if you’re not allergic to egg whites they can cause problems in people with auto-immune issues. And contrary to popular belief, egg yolks actually have many health benefitsΒ –Β they contain cholesterol (it has recently been proven that the cholesterol in eggs does not negatively impact your health), fat soluble vitamins, calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamin, folate, B6, and B12- YAY! So I’m thinking that this cookie is actually a health food, that’s what I’m going to tell myself anyway πŸ™‚

Here’s my super fast and easy chocolate chip mug cookie recipe – ENJOY!!!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Measure out 1 Tablespoon of the refined coconut oil and place in a mug or remekin. Melt the oil in the microwave, approximately 30 seconds. Swirl the oil to coat the mug.
  2. Stir in the palm sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  3. Then, carefully stir in the arrowroot flour and salt. Then stir in the chocolate chips.
  4. Cook for 1 minute on 80% power (assuming you have a 1000 watt microwave). This is important or the cookie will be dry. On my microwave, you enter the time, then press "power" and press 8. If you gently touch the top and it lightly springs back, it's perfect (if it's firm to the touch, it's overcooked).
  5. Serve immediately πŸ™‚

    Oh. My. Goodness. This is SO incredible!!! I am absolutely drooling over this…I love it sooooo very much!!! Thank you!!! (I am not overreacting…)

  2. Angela

    I’ve made this a couple times now. LOVE it!! My husband really liked it too!! Thank you so much!! πŸ™‚

    Wow – these were great! I used maple syrup instead of coconut sugar (didn’t change the amount) and the yolk of 1 large egg instead of extra large. The taste was great! The texture was like a moist cake. It did get a little crumbly, but wasn’t dry at all. The only thing that could possibly make it better is a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Thanks for such a great simple recipe.

    Talk about quick and easy!! I loved this, I subbed frozen blueberries for the chocolate chips just because that’s what I had on hand…yum!

  5. Trisha

    Thank you SO much for this recipe! I absolutely love it. I’ve tried modifying it w/ different flavors and it turns out perfect and delicious everytime! So far I’ve made chocolate, lemon-blueberry, and banana. Next I’m going to try pumpkin, maybe carrot. This is one of the best recipes I’ve ever tried, Paleo or otherwise πŸ™‚

    • I’m so happy you like it! I will have to try some of the different flavors you mentioned, they sound so yummy!!!!

      Thank you for the nice comment!
